    it can be for

    1)promotion,

    2)a business where there is understand between customer and comp to send stock on a periodic basis.

    3) order in R/2 and delivery in R/3.

    When you create a delivery without reference to an order, you must enter the ship-to party and the materials manually. Data is copied into the document from the appropriate master records. The system does not check whether the data is complete. Therefore, you can create a delivery without specifying a delivering plant or a storage location, for example.

    You can find in the LO doc ( delivery without order ) in OVLK a default order type mentioned still. i think its DL.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    1. When we want to tap a new customer who will be using our product for the first time. In this case we want to send him/her a sample of our product. So the customer will not give a PO. But we will send him/her the material on trial basis. On successful trial then we will receive the PO from the customer.

    2. Suppose an old customer wants some material from us. But due to some conditions the PO cannot be sent by the customer. In this case we will create the delivery without reference to an order.

    Reward points if solution helsp.

    Hi Sudhahar,

    A pharma company has come up with a new medicine and needs to promote it in the market. They need to give sample medicines to the doctors. This would be a real time example where without a reference to an order we would still have a delivery.

    Hi,

    1. If the sales and distribution module is in R/2 and the logistics module is in R/3 then we use LO - delivery without order reference

    Order will be created in R/2 or any other system and delivery will be done in R/3.

    2. Free samples before the product is launched in to the market.

    Regards

    Hi

    One realtime scenario that I recently faced , wherein we had to create Return Delivery Order without Reference, is given below:

    We had to discontinue a Dealer(spare parts dealer) who was operating from a long time back. He had spares in his stock, which were supplied long back , in the Legacy era.These spares had to be taken back into our system, which had apparently no SAP order reference or invoice reference.Our Mgmt decided to use the Delivery order w/o reference route to tackle this issue.

    Hope this info will be helpful.

    Regards,
