completely refrence issue from inquiry to quotation

Hi gurus,

when I'm creating an quotation with the reference to a inquiry the status of the material becomes fully referenced even if i have not referenced the whole quantity in quotation from inquiry.

How can we change the settings so that until the whole quantity in inquiry is refrenced sap should allow me to create new quotations on the same material?

    Aslo check the Item category AFN, "Complete Refernce" by default it will be complete by first refernce that is why Inquiry can be refernced only once, though it is partially refernced it can not be referenced again.

    This is the standard settings for an inquiry, it comes because of AFN Item category.

    The copy control - "Complete Reference" refers to once the items copied from previous docs, cannnot be changed in the target document.

    + / -ve field will be +ve for INQ to QT.

    dear deepak

    check in the copy control from inquiry to quotation

    that wether you have check the complete reference or not

    Complete reference:

    Business scenario:

    If you mark this field the system copies the source to target document completely. Then system also copies the complete reference indicator.

    Then you can not change the indicator in the target document.

    rewards if it helps

    hi,

    In transaction VTAA for your Quotation type and Inquiry type the item category must have the Pos/Neg.quantity field with value '+'. Please read the following help file also.

    Quantity is calculated positively, negatively or not at all

    Indicates whether, during copying, the quantity or value in the target

    document has a negative effect, positive effect, or no effect at all on

    the quantity still to be completed in the source document.

    Use

    The system uses this indicator to determine how the quantity in the

    source document is affected. For example, if you

    o Create a quotation item for 100 pieces,

    o Copy the quotation into a sales order, and

    o Create a sales order item for 80 pieces,

    the copying has a positive effect on the quotation. In effect, you have

    added 80 pieces to the quotation quantity that is now considered

    complete. 20 pieces in the quotation remain to be completed.

    If you do not make an entry in this field, or set indicator 0, the

    source document is not blocked, which allows you to create several

    target documents at once (for example, when using EDI and frequent

    contract releases).

    While the source document (such as quotation or quantity contract) is

    being processed, it is blocked. For instance, if you are working on a

    quantity contract, no one can create a release order for that contract).

    Example

    In sales documents, for example, you can expect the following results:

    o Quotation -> Sales order: positive

    o Contract -> Return: negative

    o Sales order -> Sales order: no effect

    In billing documents, for example, you can expect the following results:

    o Delivery -> Invoice: positive

    o Delivery -> Cancellation: negative

    o Delivery -> Pro-forma invoice: no effect

    Regards,

    Murali
