    Hi.

    I guess you are working with costing base COPA. For the delivery, you need to implement a derivation with exit ZXKKEU11, and pick the dates from tables LIKP/LIPS or from the Goods Issue in table MSEG, depending on your scenario. You can jump from the SalesOrder or Invoice to the outbound delivery, but its a good ides to talk with your SD Partner about all the possible scenarios your have,including cancelations and whatever scenario they have. Test all the scenarios! Most of the time SD boys talk about the most common scenarios but forget the special cases.

    I see other threads about pick data from the outbound delivery, so google this (I guess someone want the OutBound Delivery number in PA).

    Hi Ahmed,

    I think @arturo senosain had hinted you the way to go about it.

    I just have one thought to offer, though it is not an answer to the question you have asked, yet it could be relevant.

    If you have Delivery Date and Billing Date as Segment Level Characteristics, your system performance will be severely hit in the coming near future, because of the the number of Characteristics PA Segments that would be created. If you decide to have them as Non Segment Level Characteristics, they would be in Line Item table only and thus not so helpful.

    Instead, If i were you, i would try to build a Custom report, that would give me all the details i need.

    The Principal advantages would be

    1) As it is rightly pointed out above, the chances of getting all kinds of different SD scenarios would be very difficult (rather near impossible), and they are subject to changes. And whenever there is a change or introduction of a new scenario, you will have to change the Custom Logic in KEDR and transport.

    2) If it is a report, even if it fails, you can always correct it and the impact of it will be significantly (honestly, the word to be used is "relatively"....when you take into account your Manager...if you know what i mean 😉 ) less.

    Best Regards

    Surya

    Hi Ahmed,

    I completely agree with Mr.Surya Varma's suggestion. Please go through it instead of create a new characteristic.
