    Link Between SAP SD, MM & FI

    The link between SD and MM :-

    1. When you create sales order in SD, all the details of the items are copied from Material master of MM.

    2. MRP and availibility check related data is also taken from MM although you control this data in SD also.

    3. While you create inbound/outbound delivery with reference to a sales order,the shipping point determination takes place with the help of the loading group, plant data, shipping conditions etc. This also refers to Material Master.

    4. The material which you are entering in a sales order must be extended to the sales area of your sales order/customer otherwise you cannot transact with this material.

    There are many such links between SD and MM.

    Now the link between SD and FI :-

    1. Whenever you create a delivery with reference to a sales order, goods movement takes place in the bacgground. eg. In case of standard sales order, you create an outbound goods delivery to the customer.

    Here movement 601 takes place. This movement is configured in MM. Also, this movement hits some G/L account in FI. Every such movement of good s hits some G/L account.

    2. The accounts posting in FI is done with reference to the billing documents (invoice, debit note, credit note etc) created in SD. Thus this is a link between SD and FI

    3. Tax determination: In case of a tax determination also, there is a direct link between SD and MM

    SD Integration points with other modules

    SD module is highly integrated with the other modules in SAP.

    •Credit Check - FI

    •Costing - CO/ MM

    •Tax Determination - FI

    •Transfer of Requirements - PP/ MM

    Delivery & Goods Issue –

    Return Delivery & Credit Memo -

    Integration Points Module

    •Increases Inventory - MM

    •Updates G/ L - FI

    •Credit Memo - FI

    •Adjustment to A/R - FI

    •Reduces Revenue - FI

    SD Transaction Code Flow:

    Inquiry / Document type IN

    Tcode for creation VA11,VA12,VA13. tables VBAK,VBAP

    Quotation / QT

    Tcode for creation VA21,VA22,VA23. tables VBAK,VBAP

    Purchase Order PO

    Tcode for creation ME21,ME22,ME23. tables EKKO,EKPO.

    Sales Order OR

    Tcode for creation VA01,VA02,VA03. tables VBAK,VBAP

    Delivery LF

    Tcode for creation VL01,VL02,VL03. tables LIKP,LIPS

    Billing MN

    Tcode for creation VF01,VF02,VF03. tables VBRK,VBRP

    To create a sales order we need purchase order number and custmer number. Before that, to create a purchase order we need to have material no, vendor no.

    To create vendor tcode is

    xk01(create), xk02(change) , xk03(display)

    Tables are lfa1.

    To create custmer tcode is xd01, xd02, xd03.

    Table is kna1.

    After creating sales order using this no we can create delivery note tcode is vl01.

      Hi Barry

      Thanx for the information. But what i m looking for is the flow right from PP to FI(involving all modules in between). I mean how is Process order created and settled. How production moves to MM, then to Sd and then to FICO in a simple flowchart if possible. I know it might be asking for too much but if its possible, then i would be really grateful.
