    Hi Rajesh,

    Document flow means the sequence of documents which are created in SD.It starts of with quotation sales order -delivery -pgi --invoice.

    Once the invoice is created your values will be passed on to accounting.

    Hi Rajesh,

    The document flow displays the interlinkages to a business transaction, and displays documents linked to each other in the system.

    When processing business transactions, you can display the document flow for a selected transaction, for example, information on the documents linked to the current transaction. For example, you can trace which transactions a specific standard order refers to.

    A possible document flow could consist of a task, a quotation and a sales order. If you displayed this document flow from the quotation, the task would be a preceding document, and the sales order would be a subsequent document.

    Hope it helps. Pl reward if useful.

    Thanks & Regards

    Hi,

    Document flow in SD means the flow of materials from starting to the end stage.

    It generally starts with <b>Inquiry</b> then <b>quotation</b>then <b>delivery</b>then <b>PGI</b>then <b>Billing</b>.

    If we take into account the outline agreements contract and scheduling agreement, we will come across with order in scheduling agreeement and we proceed with order in contract.

    Hope this adds information.

    Hi Rajesh,

    Document flow shows how far subsequent documents have been processed. This function is based at header level. All the transactions in a trading contract are documented a flow tree.

    Document flow may, for example, contain sales orders, purchase orders, and vendor billing documents for expenses. The associated partner document is also shown in this structure. By selecting a document description, you can access the document in display mode.

    The icon appears only if subsequent documents exist. By selecting the icon, you can change the display position of the document flow screen

    I hope i am clear.

    regards

    kiran.

    Dear Rajesh,

    Document Flow in Sales :

    The sales documents you create are individual documents but they can also form part of a chain of inter-related documents. For example, you may record a customer’s telephone inquiry in the system. The customer next requests a quotation, which you then create by referring to the inquiry. The customer later places an order on the basis of the quotation and you create a sales order with reference to the quotation. You ship the goods and bill the customer. After delivery of the goods, the customer claims credit for some damaged goods and you create a free-of-charge delivery with reference to the sales order. The entire chain of documents – the inquiry, the quotation, the sales order, the delivery, the invoice, and the subsequent delivery free of charge – creates a document flow or history. The flow of data from one document into another reduces manual activity and makes problem resolution easier. Inquiry and quotation management in the Sales Information System help you to plan and control your sales.

    Regards,

    Rakesh
