    Dear Edie

    Using requirements in copying control, you can specify how a sales document is to be billed with regard to requirements.

    You define the copying requirements in copying control. Controlling is carried out in SD Customizing via Billing --> Billing documents --> Maintain copying control for billing documents, Navigation Header and Item, field: Copying requirement.

    If you want to define a copying requirement as a data transfer routine, enter this in field: VBRK/VBRP.


    You can determine copying requirements for:

    -> the header

    -> items

    You can, for instance, call sales document data on:

    -> Billing status

    -> Billing block

    -> Pricing status

    -> Completeness

    With the requirements in copying control, you can call up data in master records, for example data on whether a billing block exists in a customer master record.

    You can also specify your own requirements as data transport routines. In this way, you can determine whether terms of payment are to be copied from the customer master instead of the sales document.

    Copy control can be associated with the transfer of data between the various sales documents from a Quotation to Cash. Thus, copy control forms part of the document flow process. Copy control uses data at the header and schedule line level. Copy control determines which data is to be transfered, a copy control can be set to ensure copying of data at predefined time intervals. Similarly, with copy control one can also specify when to stop the copying process. Copy control is important in another way since it helps in determing wether new prices are used or not.
