    Hello Daniele,

    CR and CMR4 are used in different contexts (scope items).

    CR belongs to 1EZ (Sales) whereas CMR4 belongs to J14 (Professional Services).

    Kind regards,

    Karsten

    Hi Daniele,

    In terms of document type configuration, there is a subtle difference between the two.

    The document type CR is defaulted with billing block 'Y8' and Read Customer Material Flag (Customer materials allow the specification of unique, customer-specific names, as well as other information, for materials in a company). Whereas, the document type CMR is NOT defaulted with these two settings.

    Now, the purpose of these document types is linked to managing sales document workflows (New & Obsolete).

    1) To create approval workflows (New) for credit memo requests, you must use the document type without the billing block. And for this purpose the document type CMR can be used as its NOT defaulted with billing block (standard configuration)

    2) And to create approval workflows for credit memo requests using the obsolete method, you must have the billing block defaulted in the sales document types, in this case the billing block of document type CR is defaulted to 'Y8'.

    Hope this clarifies.

    Thanks

    Sai
