VOV7 - Item Category Configuration

Hello, all,

I need to suppress a line on our billing documents for Free of Charge sales orders (Order type YBFD). Here is what the current output looks like

It is Item 11 that needs to be suppressed. It results from Auto Batch determination on the Delivery.

Here is the VF02 view

I have tried to use VOV7 to configure the Item Category, but both lines, 10 and 11, have the same item category

Row 10 is required to be on the Billing Document. Here is the VOV7 configuration for YBLN

I tried setting the Billing Relevance to H - Delivery-related billing - no zero quantities, but that had no effect. By setting it to blank, then I lose item 10.

I am out of ideas, and need some help.

Thank you!

    Screenshot 1 does not look like a free of charge item situation, it looks more like batch split.

    Question1: Are you 100% sure that you are not dealing with batch split items in billing?

    Question 2: Do you need to influence just the printout or also the billing document?

    In the first case you simply need to change whatever smartform you are using. In the second case - you need to adjust customizing.

    If this is batch split - read sap note 77414 - Billing during batch split. From your screenshot I suspect case 1 as the current situation and that you wish to achieve case 3.

    If you are sure, that you need to change the current customizing, please double-check also with the Accounting and Controlling expert whether this is acceptable for them.

    There are two ways of doing it

    you can change the smart form to not print This particular Item Category

    remove this particular Item Category in copy controls VTFL for the relevant Delivery and Billing Document.
