How to print multiple docs from Vl02N?


How do you print formats LDOO, ZDOO, and ZDBL (notice, bol, and delivery order) at one time?

Currently have to select printer for each then click through them again to print once saved. With a large number of orders, this causes unnecessary processing delays.

How do you print all once saved without the back and forth? One button print?

    This is all very new to me and I'm trying to figure out if there are more streamlined processes that could be used. I'm not sure what you're referring to as a "job"? What does that mean?

    Would also like to know what you mean by "pre-printed papers". These docs are printed first, before any other stage is completed. It IS going to one printer; one printer, but differing docs (is that what "pre-printed" refers to? Templates?).

    What I want to know is HOW to do the things you're mentioning. If I know exactly what should be happening, I'll be better prepared to request it does.

  • Pre-printed papers are forms with part of the information already present before you print e.g.:

    This is more typical for invoices, customs documents and transportation-related papers. If there is a legal requirement in the country, which requires the usage of different forms and you have a single printer, there is not much automation, that you can achieve if you have to switch papers by hand. Still, it is possible at least to set the correct default printer and not enter it manually each time. For example, your consultant can specify, that when you create invoices and delivery notes, they are issued to the printer in your room, but when your colleague prints invoices - they will be printed from the printer in his office.

    These docs are printed first, before any other stage is completed. 

    This is probably not entirely true - with transportation module this usually is done at shipment completion after picking is finished (goods issue in background at shipment completion), without transportation module you issue delivery notes after goods issue is done.

    By 'job' I meant background jobs, in your case this means running one or several programs with specific selections at predefined times, which result in documents printed at a later time. This is particularly useful, when you have a large volume of documents - e.g. you and your colleagues create documents all day, you use the same printer, nothing is printed immediately, when you come back on the next day in the morning - all documents from the previous day are printed. Background jobs are also capable of preforming billing in an automated way - instead of you you running VF04, at the end of the day a scheduled job does that for you, then the documents can be printed also automatically.

    None of this can be done by a business user and the best approach depends on too many variables, which is why I suggested, that you discuss the situation with your local support team.

    And you really need to ask your supervisor to provide you with access to training documentation - I usually handle workshops and training sessions with the business on this topic, most likely others do that, too. The majority of your current and future questions can be answered by reading whatever the implementation team has provided as training materials/decision papers.

    Thank you. This at least gives me a point of reference with what I need to hone in on. And your guess was right, they are 'pre-printed' documents.

    Have you not come across VL71 ? Please search Google before posting such repeated queries

    • That is what "community" is for; direction, assistance, discussion, knowledge.

      Yes of course but at the sametime, OP should also put some efforts as a part of SCN RoE. Better go through that before posting further queries.
