Customs document type cannot be determined for external document Type F8

Hello Experts

Need help

I am trying to transfer F8 to GTS 10.1 and getting following message in GTS  Transfer log for export:

Customs document type cannot be determined for external document Type F8

New implementation

GTS 10.1 running with SP 12

ECC side Plug-In settings are fine. BAdi is Active.(There is no document mapping for F8/CUSDEC as it is not required in 10.1)

GTS side configurations are also fine. Checked several times by 4 sets of eyes!!

(Include general settings configurations, Customs communication configurations:)

(Defining technical medium, conditions/output parameters, defining messages for communication process,

defining determination for activity sequence and control settings for communication process)

Despite this I am not able to trnasfer F8 successfully

Can someone throw some light on this issue please?😕

    Hi Keshav,

    Although working on SAP GTS 10.1 SP12, i don't have any such information on the non maintenance of mapping for F8 Billing types but I would ask you to check and do ensure the below settings as well.

    • Check that Document Type CULOEX is activated for Customs Processing.
    • Check that all required Partner Functions have been mapped.
    • Check that the Item Category in the proforma is assigned to GTS Item Category CLPOS.
    • Check that there is an entry  for the determination of the Activity Sequence.
    • Check that the Business Partners and Products have been transferred as Master Data.

    Regards,

    Aman

    • Hi Dhilipan

      No that happened with some document for sure. But I have checked other documents with all those parameters checked. Mohit was also referring to this. I have sent one more case tested today to Mohit and have requested him to check with you by showing the screens.

      Thanks for the help. As suggested I have to debug the FM and see.

    Dear Keshav,

    I guess you need add the special trade indictor S1 in the activity sequence determination. For example, ACE Export/Re-export S1  CUSEX. Then the export customs declaration document will be triggered successfully. More details please see the SAP note 1086894. Thanks.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question.

    Best regards,

    Kevin Cao.
