shipping point determination based on item category

Dear

we have a requirment which needs to determine shipping point based on item category. anyone could share how to achieve that? I am familiar with sap standard shipping determination rule: shipping condition in sold-to-party MMD or shipping condition within sale document type + loading group + delivery plant. However those condtions wouldnt fullfill our needs. the items within a sales order are exactly same except item category, such as item 10 is TAN , item 20 is TAB item.I want the system get different shipping point for those two different item category.

any though would be appreciated and thank you,

best regards

peng. tang

    Hi,

    Based your depiction, I think you should consider why shipping point must be divided by item category? Why it can not be determined by loading group which is allocated in material master. I think loading group can solve your problem.

    If you insist your thought, maybe you can try the user-exit in SAPMV45A. But first you should allocate both shipping point to the standard procedure.

    If you can restrict the item category in the sales document, say use sales order type ZTAB only for item category TAB, you can determine different shipping points.

    Check the following IMG:

    SPRO -> LE -> Shipping -> Basic Shipping Functions -> Shipping Point and GR point det. -> define shipping conditions by sales doc

    peng,

    Please explain why client wants shipping point determination based on item category?

    Any other parameters to be taken in shipping point determination? e.g. plant, loading group, shipping condition too, in addition item category?

    Thanks!

    • peng,

      I think you should change the department and not the shipping point.

      As wayne wu suggested you can go for that userexit - create a table with fields/columns item category and department.

      Take into analysis if different sales organizations / company codes, use the same item category, do you need to add other columns in the table. (e.g. sales org etc)

    hi,

    In Sales Order you can maintian it by ABAP development for Screen varient. As per per item category shipping point shuold be select.

    but material must be extend under plant and shipping point related General Item Category Group & Item category group wise.

    thanks
