    1.What are Change header/detail tables? Have you used them?

    ans: CDHDR & CDPOS are the tables for change document header and position.these table s get updated when there is change.

    4.What is a currency factoring technique?

    The amount value(defined as currency) will be dependent on currency key. that's why currency field should have a reference field of type currency key.

    Based on the currency key value the no of decimals values will be determined. Please refer TCURC table to get infomation about currency key.

    To do currency translations, we are using many function modules.Some of the important function modules are:

    BAPI_CURRENCY_CONV_TO_EXTERNAL : Conversion of Currency Amounts into External Data Format

    BAPI_CURRENCY_CONV_TO_INTERNAL :Conversion of Currency Amounts into Internal Data Format


    Check this one

    5.What is output determination?

    ans: output determination : You can use output control to automate either messages or subsequent processing of partner-specific messages"

    This means, it provides a method for you to perform subsequent processing once a document is saved in the system. This subsequent processing is normally to print the document, but can also include activities such as:

    - Faxing the document

    - Emailing the document

    - Sending an idoc of the document

    - Sending an EDI message for the document (via an Idoc)

    - and so on.

    In general, it uses the condition technique to determine what, if any, output is to be produced. The condition technique works by selecting key fields from the document (document type, plant, etc.) and matching them to master data records you have previously set up. If there is a match, then output is produced.

    reward if useful.
