Assign Letter of Credit Directly in Delivery Order

Dear All,

Business want to assign LC directly into delivery order without assigning it into sales order/contract first. Is it possible to use standard function or do I have to do some enhancement?

Because as per my understanding, LC has to be assigned into sales order/contract first, otherwise the sales order/contract will be incomplete and then we can't create the delivery order.

Please advice.

Thank you.

Best regards,

    I am not sure that I understand how the process is supposed to work in reality - there is a significant risk to fulfill the order, but the business wishes to proceed and reserve stock despite of that? Strange...

    Anyway, I can think of two places to influence CMPSI, but I have not personally tried them - one is in the well-known OVA8 (custom routine), another is in V_T691O (again custom routine). Might be possible, but I feel that it would result in more problems than it could solve.

    One more thing, worth mentioning: financial document assignment in deliveries has some limitations, which it is a good idea to explain to the business owners. For example, this is possible only for deliveries originating from sales orders and it can be done only at header level.

    Did the business explain why they need to assign financial documents at delivery level and not in the order?

    • If they do credit checks at only at delivery level, yes, it is understandable why the business wishes to assign documents at this stage.

      Maybe it is still worth it to explore the possibility of routines at one of the places, which I mentioned. If you speak with your ABAP developer about this case, he/she could verify the feasibility of this option.

    The purpose of assigning the LC to sales order is to compare the order value ,if you are having the value in delivery also then you need to perform workaround process with enhancements.
