Item Category Determination for sales document- Item USAGE

Hi dear all.

I read already the discussions held around this subject, as I'm facing a similar problem for which I cannot find a solution.

I have the need to set up a ItCat determination for sales order ZPD.

The proposed ItCat must be <b>ZPDW</b>. However, for the NORM ItCat Group we have already a setup which cannot be changed.

This is the present status.

SaTy ItCatGrp Usage HLevItCat Proposed ItCat

ZPD NORM ZPD

I need that the proposed ItCat is ZPDW, under the same conditions

SaTy ItCatGrp Usage HLevItCat Proposed ItCat

ZPD NORM ? ZPDW

For that I believe that I'll have to play along with the Usage.

But how?

What triggers an USAGE during sales order creation? Is it related to the entered material. In a NORM material, how can a usage be deducted?

Thanks for your feedback on this issue.

    It is possible , either one of the item category u can make as proposed and another one as manual. So while creating sale order u need to change it manually

      Hi Sam.

      Thanks for your reply.

      But I'm affraid that this won't be a solution, as the user may forget to change manually to ItCat to the desired one.

      It has to be populated automatically.

    There is a usage field in customer material info-record. You may try to use that if your decision to change the item category is based on CMIR. Otherwise, you could use a use exit to fill in VBAP with either the item category or usage.
