Item Category Determination in STO

Hello gurus,

In STO process, while creating Delivery --> Delivery Item Category is NLN which will be determined based on NL[Delivery Type] + NORM + V[item Usage].

From where this Item Usage V will be picked? is it from Info Records?

    If memory serves, this V - usage is hard-coded and it is used when you create deliveries from purchase orders. This is also valid for CHSP, PACK and TEXT - the usage is selected based on the specific process.

    In general, with a few exceptions (CMIR and DSD), you cannot force the system via configuration to use a custom usage for item category determination.

    It basically hard-coded like Veselina Peykova mentioned. V is for purchase orders. Since STO is a purchase document, delivery is being created through its reference and hence 'V' usage is valid and item category will not be determined unless delivery is being routed from purchase document.
