    As far as I know, you can only influence item usage indirectly in standard - e.g. with customer-material info records.

    What exactly are you trying to do? Maybe there are other options for you to explore...

    • If your process is not related to DSD, then you cannot use that :)

      Basically, the idea behind is, that during delivery execution, you can end up delivering less than originally requested, more than requested, you can collect returns, empties with or without a preceding document, for free or non-free items, you can have driver differences as positive or negative quantities etc. These are CSTT (customer sales transaction types). Based on settlement type and CSTT it is possible to define what should happen, for example, if you have to return back 2 CS out of 5CS ordered - should you create a new document, if yes, which type? Should you update the original order with a return item, if yes - with which usage do we determine the item category? How do you wish to treat BOMs - explode or not? Do you wish to clear the billing block or let the business bill documents manually as a subsequent step? There are a few more features, but you can see, that it is a different concept compared to the conventional order-to-cash process. The mapping is in /DSD/SL_TCSTAM_V (SM30) or via SPRO:

      In your case, building something that complex as custom logic, is probably an overkill.

    You can do one thing, Item category exist in customer material info record. Make its relationship there, & same will be reflected in your SO.

    Thanks

    Hello TW,

    Is the Usage field (VWPOS) visible in Sales order VA01 / 02 / 03 screens?

    I check at the the system in am currently working on (which is highly customized) and I do not see the VWPOS Field in Sales Order or in VBAP Table.

    Thanks,

    Jignesh

    • Hello Jignesh,

      I could not find VWPOS in VA01, 2 or 3. Also it is unavailable in table VBAP.

      Was wondering if someone has worked on this type of requirement / issue, s/he can guide (based on real time experience)

      Thanks!
