sales order item number created from quotation

Hi people,

I would like to ask you if anyone know if it is possible to do following:

- I have a standard sales order type "OR"

- I insert 2 items and those have number as 10 and 20 (acc. to the customizing) - that is correct behavirour.

If it is necessary to put some item between these items, I simply type eg. 15 as item number and insert material. I have a new item 15 created.

For this order type "OR" I have in customizing checked "Quotation messages = 'B'". So when I put material contained in quotation, I am able to transfer it to sales order. It is working fine. But sometimes I need to put this material to specific item number and here comes the problem. It is always inserted as new line with next free number. It is not possible to convince it to take item number I put before this material.

Do anybody has an idea how to achieve this?

Thank you,

I don't think that clearing or setting the indicator Copy item number will help much in your case.
What you describe, I think, is the logic from FV45PF0V_VBAP-POSNR_FUELLEN.
I guess, you could try a data transfer routine different from 151, but I am not sure how well this will go - I have not tried this in a sandbox.

To me, the whole idea of end users setting manally item numbers seems rather strange and quite risky - even if you could make the item number field editable via MV45AFZZ and if this does not break something else, this is not something that most users would be happy with. Is there really no way to achieve your original requirement without a manual item renumbering?

Good point. The requirement is indeed a bit odd.


I do agree with you that this requirement is a little odd. But some customers have a leverage to push us to fulfill their requirements. So I am trying to do it so :-).

Editable item number is not a good solution. I try to go through FV45PF0V_VBAP-POSNR_FUELLEN and different transfer routiene as you advised.

Thank you,

In copy control VTAA, at header level, there is a check box "Copy item number". Has this been checked?

sorry for being late with an answer. The answer is yes, I have set up this checkbox.

Best regards,



So... what do you expect then? Maybe uncheck and see what happens? Sorry but this question seems rather like RTFM...



did you at least try it before answering? A read whatever I found to this topic and there is not a lot of reading. And believe, I tried this at first - uncheck this box. But voilá, nothing happened.

With nothing I mean:

- I have two items 10 and 20

- then put 11 to item number and put material - there is a popup to select proper quotatins so I go through it

- and item number 30 happened
