    Output is a form of media from business to one of its business partners. The output can be sent to any of the partners defined in the document. Outputs are usually in the form of Order Confirmations, Freight List, Delivery Notes, Invoices & Shipping Notifications. Determining form of output is output determination

    Types of Output: Print Output, Fax, Telex, E-Mail & EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)

    PRINT OUTPUT:

    SPRO- IMG- Basic Functions- Output Control- Output Determination- Output Det using Cond Tech- Output Det for Sales Documents & output det for billing documents.

    Create Condition Table: select the field Sales Doc Type from field catalog & Save

    Maintain Access Sequence: 4-digits code & description. Assign condition table to access sequence. Select Accesses line item and Go To Fields. Fields will display the fields we have selected in the condition table i.e. sales doc type.

    Maintain Output Types:

    AF00: Inquiry

    AN00: Quotation

    BA00: Order Confirmation

    LD00: Delivery

    Select BA00 & Copy & Rename. Give the same 4-digit code as given to acc seq.

    You Can Maintain:

    Languages of Output

    Partners (to whom we want to send output)

    Print Program- print specification

    Sap Script- layout

    Assign Output Types to Partner Functions: go to new entries & assign your output type to partner functions.

    Maintain Output Determination Procedure: V10000 (Standard Procedure). Go to new entries & create your own 6-digit code with descp. Select the procedure & go to Control Data. Here mention the output type i.e. cond type & leave requirement and manual only columns as blank.

    Determination Rule: link the 6-digit procedure code to doc types.

    Create Condition Records: VV11. Select document type and click on Communication. Mention partner function, medium, time. Output device: LP01, Spool request Name: SD_003, Suffix 2: order_confir & flag on print immediately.

    Once you press enter you will come across 2 key combinations:

    Sales organisation/ Customer Number: fill SO, Customer No, Partner Function Abbreviation, Partner to whom the output should be sent, time, medium, language. {It contains: Sales Orgn, Customer, Partner Function (The abbreviated form of the name that identifies the Partner) (During output determination, the system determines the recipient of the output from the master record for the specified partner function. In this field, you can explicitly specify a recipient that will override the standard partner. There must also be a master record for the partner that is specified explicitly.), Medium, Time & Language.}

    Order Type: Document Type, Partner Function (abbreviation), Partner, Medium, Time & Language.

    The Output Determination component offers output functions for sales, shipping, transportation, and billing to help you manage sales transactions with your customers and within your company. You can create sales activity output (for example, customer telephone calls, mailing campaigns) and group output (for example, freight lists). Your company employees can send and receive output. Output is directly linked to the corresponding sales transaction (for example, the system automatically sends an order confirmation via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) as soon as the employee creates an order).

    Integration

    The output determination component is used for output control. Output control is used to exchange information with internal and external partners.

    Output control includes the following functions, described in the cross-application (CA) - Output Control documentation:

    Output Determination

    Output Processing

    Features

    The system can automatically propose output for a sales and distribution document. You can change this output in the sales and distribution document.

    The system uses the condition technique to determine output. For more information on the condition technique, see Conditions and Pricing.
