    HI

    refer below

    Reserve fields in the customer master record

    The customer master includes reserve fields that are not assigned to any particular function. You can assign value to these fields and use them. To maintain the fields, select "Environment -> Additional data" on a customer master maintenance screen. The general data and the sales area data contain different fields:

    Ten fields were included in table KNA1 (general part of customer master record):

    Five two-digit fields:

    • KATR 1 (Attribute 1)

    • KATR 2 (Attribute 2)

    • KATR 3 (Attribute 3)

    • KATR 4 (Attribute 4)

    • KATR 5 (Attribute 5)

    Five three-digit fields:

    • KATR 6 (Attribute 1)

    • KATR 7 (Attribute 2)

    • KATR 8 (Attribute 3)

    • KATR 9 (Attribute 4)

    • KATR 10 (Atrribute 5)

    Check tables TVKO - TVK9 and the corresponding maintenance views V_TVK0 - V_TVK9 (SM30 - extended table maintenance) exist for the fields.

    Five three-digit fields were included in table KNVV (Sales data of the customer master record):

    • KVGR1 (Customer group 1)

    • KVGR2 (Customer group 2)

    • KVGR3 (Customer group 3)

    • KVGR4 (Customer group 4)

    • KVGR5 (Customer group 5)

    Check tables TVV1 - TVV5 and the corresponding maintenance views V_TVV1 - V_TVV5 exist for the fields. The fields were included in tables VBAK (sales header), VBRP (billing item), LIPS, KUAGVZ. Value is also assigned to them in the tables, which means that they were copied from the master record of the sold-party and used in the sales and distribution transaction.

    Note

    In the standard system, the views are not included in the user interface. However, it is possible for you to include them in the user interface.

    Using reserve fields

    To use a reserve field of the customer master according to your requirements, proceed as follows:

    1. Change the short descriptions of the data elements by using the SAP enhancement.

    2. Choose Tools -> ABAB Workbench -> Utilities -> Enhancements -> Project management -> Text enhancements -> Key words -> Change.

    3. Maintain the corresponding entity tables V_TVKO-V_TVK9 or V_TVV1-V_TVV5.

    Example

    You want to use the reserve fields of the customer master (general part) to store the liquidity level of your customer to use for statistical analyses. Proceed as follows:

    1. Change data element KATR1:

    • Change the short description "Attribute 1" to "Customer liquidity".

    • Change the corresponding key words.

    2. Aktivate data element KATR1.

    3. Maintain entity table V_TVK1, by defining the following values:

    • "01" good liquidity

    • "02" average liquidity

    • "03" poor liquidity

    4. Use the same procedure for the remaining reserve fields KATR2-KATR10.

    Reserve fields in the material master

    Five three-digit fields were also included in material master MVKE. The entity tables TVM1 - TVM5 and the corresponding maintenance views V_TVM1 -V_TVM5 exist for these fields. The fields were included in the tables VBAP, VBRP, LIPS, MAAPV, where value is assigned to them. However, you cannot yet enter the fields in the material master maintenance. To use the reserve fields, proceed as described above for customer master maintenance.

    Reserve fields in the sales order

    In the sales order, the additional fields VBAK-KVGR1 - VBAK-KVGR5 were included at header level, to which value is assigned from the fields KNVV-KVGR1 - KNVV-KVGR5.

    In the sales order, the additional fields VBAP-KVGR1 - VBAP-KVGR5 were included at item level, to which value is assigned from the fields MVKE-MVGR1 - MVKE-MVGR5.

    To reach the additional fields in the sales document, select Header -> Additional data or Item -> Additional data.

    Hi,

    could you please let me know if it's possible to set e.g. KATR7 as a mandatory field? I searched a lot but couldn't found how to do that as these fields are also not appearing in t-code OBD2.

    thanks Markus
