Creation of Document type

Hi Please guide me about creation of document types for PR/PO.

If i want to create document type for the capital item as say ZCAP.

What are the item categories I should select. Also how does the item category affects the document type and further creation of PO/PR?

What is the significance of linkage PR.?

Also for creating the new document type we use the NB document type , why? Why do we create new one, cant we use the NB instead of creating new one?

If any body can explain with example that would be great.

Warm Regards,

Bhasker VB.

    <b>Hi Please guide me about creation of document types for PR/PO.</b>

    U can create new non standred document type for PR and Po

    <b>If i want to create document type for the capital item as say ZCAP.

    U can create Doc type ZCAP bu coping std Doc type NB or u can creat as your own

    Item categories help system to ask for a relevent data as if u give item category L which is for subcontracting then it will ask for supplied components

    If u say U the it will change venter in to suppling plant and also change relevent things for stock transfer

    <b>Also for creating the new document type we use the NB document type , why? Why do we create new one, cant we use the NB instead of creating new one?</b>

    We can use NB document type for creating new one but ist not compalsory u can directely create your own. We copy so that, all the releating item catagories can be copied.

    we create new one if u want different number range for asset proc and others.

    or if u want to have subcontracting po diffrent form others. etc.

    but there is no relation between Account assig cat and document type.

    hope things r clear

    reward accordingly

    Hi Bhasker

    you may copy NB document type to create the new document type like ZCAP

    for capitial goods you may choose Standard one although you may use all as in case of NB

    document type

    for each document type there are Allowed item Category other if you have already assigned to the document type then you can't Create the PR/PO for other item category

    you create new Document type only for your own purpose although aal whatever you define new document type are the copy of SAP standard one

    Thanks

    I hope this will give u some idea................
