    each document ( like quote, in, order . ro) are divided into three parts in R/3 1.header , 2.item level, 3.schedule lines.

    header data talks about the characteristics of the document if it is a sales order how a sales order should behave will be defined here. how the customers are identified, the payment terms how this particular document should be raised and how the materials here are determined are declared here.

    where as coming to the item data the characteristics of th ematerial or items will be customised here , to wich category it belongs to it could be a service item , deliverable item, package goods , semifinished etc. apart from this different conditions pertaining to this material said here.

    coming to schedule line data the delivery characteristicsa are declared here when whome to etc.

    For eg See EKKO which is Purchase Order header data and PO Item data is stored in EKPO.

    Hi,

    the header data is one which do not change frequently and the item data is one which change frequently.

    eg.

    customer id customer name are header data they are primary information

    while.

    cusrtomeradress phone no. material quantity change frquently and they are item level data

    header and item level data are related by a key here customer id.

    note: at header level there will be only one record pertaining to cone ustomer

    while there can be many record at item .level for one customer.

    since he can buy many material at difrernet time.

    Regards

    Header data is data that pertains to the entire document like document type or document date. Line item data is data that pertains to only a single line item like the amount or posting key.
