Giving BOM material as free good in Sales Order

Hi,

I have a business requirement.

I want to give a free good in Sales Oreder which is a BOM material.This should be possible by manually changing Item category for the line item in the Sales Order just like how we can change TAN to TANN in normal circumsatnces when we add free good material for any NON BOM material.

In standard functionality,the item category determined for this BOM material is TAQ but this item category field in Sales Order is non editable because of which I can not include the BOM material as free good in my sales order.

I have already defined one z Item category for free goods for this BOM material & want to use it in Sales Order.

Can you please suggest how this can be handled ?

Or is there any other work around by which will allow me to include BOM material as free good in my Sales Order ?

Thanks in advance

Regards,

BM

    Hi,

    Well, Free goods are not supported for BOM in SAP Functionality, even by manually chaniging the It Cat at Sales order level. I mean that you can't give "BOM" materials as freegoods.

    in item category determination add "TANN" in the field" Manual entries allowed for item category in the document" i.e., in tcode "VOV4" select ur entry and add TANN after TAQ, then the system allows u to manually to change the item category in the sales order.

    Hi,

    It's possible using BOM. Create BOM for item A and make B

    and C as sub-item.

    In material master record of item A set item category group as ERLA. In sales order it will generate item category TAQ for header item and TAE for sub-items.

    As TAE is not relevant for pricing or billing no pricing will

    be generated for Item B and C.

      Thanks everyone for the feedback.I agree with Samir Danish.It is a standard functionality of SAP which does not allow free goods for BOM material.

      However, can someone suggest work around to deal with this issue.I mean if any one has been doing any work around for this issue then please let me know.It s becoming critical for me.

      Regards,
