Item category determination

In item category determination, we have usage indiactor. We specify this as FREE for TANN. But we don't specify anything for AFNN & AGNN. Why is it specified only for determining TANN? Also how are SEIN & SENI used?

    Hi

    AFNN and AGNN are item categories used in inquiries and quotations. However the concept of free goods is not there in Inquiries or quotations (in automatic free goods determination, though manually you can enter AFNN or AGNN in the item level screen)

    As FREE usage is applicable only for sales orders and not for invoices or quotations, this is not configured for AFNN or AGNN.

    For SEIN and SENI, u can refer to the link here

    Hi,

    For free goods to be actually delivered a sales order has to be created. The item category of the main item is TAN and free goods item is TANN. The sales order item is relevant for delivery. As far as the inquiry and quotation documents are concerned the items in these 2 documents are not relevant for delivery. Inquiry is created when the customer is interested in our products and he requests us to forward the quotation. This quotation is sent to the customer. After going through the quotation the customer decides whether to order the items or not. Then the customer sends the order and now the items are relevant for billing.

    <b>Therefore for AFNN and AGNN there are no settings for free goods.</b>

    <b>Item usage</b>

    The item usage indicator controls the system reaction when you process a sales document item in a certain context.

    <b>Use</b>

    This indicator can be used for determination of item categories, where you can use it to control which other item categories are to be found in a certain environment (text items and packing items, for example).

    It can also control which items are to be billed in a service quotation or the corresponding sales order and which are only there for statistical reasons.

    You can maintain the item usage indicator in Customizing.

    <b>REGARDING</b>

    <b>SEIN</b> DItem is Billing Relevant

    <b>SENI</b> DItem not Billing Relevant

    <b>The SEIN & SENI</b> usages are used in the case of creating credit memo request and debit memo request. When in VA01 we create the credit memo request or the debit memo request this usage along with the document type, item category group, higher level item category determines the item category. Two different item categories are determined here G2N and G2S - for credit memo. Both the item categories are not relevant for delivery and are used in case of returns. Both are relevant for pricing. G2N is statistical request. If statistical then the item will not be taken into consideration while calculating the total value of the document. similarly in case of debit memo you will have L2N & L2S.

    Reward points if solution helps.
