Determination of Item Category for Delivery when created w/o reference to Sales Order

Hi Gurus,

I have gone through SDN and I found 2 different answers to my below question. Can you please clarify?

As per my understanding, should we wish to create delivery w/o reference to Sales Order, then we need to perform below settings for delivery type :-

1. Order Required Field = No Preceding Document is required.

2. Default Order Field = Enter any Pseudo sales order type.

As per below link, in this scenario, item category and movement type is selected as follows :-

From Pseudo Sales Order Type -> Item Category -> Schedule Line Category -> Movement Type

But as per the below link, item category is determined as follows :-

From a combination of Delivery Type + Item Cat. Grp. + Usage + Item Cat. of Higher level Item

Which one is correct?

    Hello Debidutta,

    Before going ahead I believe we should understand what is the use of Default Order type in Delivery document OVLK. As we do the PGI in delivery document we need movement type and it comes from schedule line category. Schedule line category is determine using Item category,to determine Itmcategory in sales order, Sales Document Type is one of the factor. that why we enter Default order type in delivery type. If system find reference order type then system ignore this Default order type.

    There is no need to maintain Delivery Item category determination if delivery is creating with reference to order type additionally relevant requirement type must be filled in VTLA while creating the delivery system copy the delivery item category from sales order.

    Basically Delivery Item category is used when we are creating Delivery with reference to Purchase order, with out order , using material determination in delivery....etc. that time only system consider delivery item category determination.
