Inco terms--vendor master& info record

Hi Stephen & Friends,

I need your input on this subject.

Incoterms we can maintain at vendor level and in info record also.

If you maintain different incoterms info record.

In the purchase order ,, you can find header inco terms will be the vendor,,,, and at item level,,,inco terms will be adopted from infor record.

Which inco terms has got precedence over other.

What exactly system detmines the from this,

please respond.

Regards,

Sudhakar babu.

    Hi Sudhakar,

    The Inco-terms are internationally accepted rules for world trade. In this way, purchasers can collaborate with their vendors to define delivery conditions and connected buyer and seller obligations. - SAP Help Document

    Now coming to the specific case which you have mentioned:

    The inco-term maintained at item level takes precedence over the one maintained at header level. The reason SAP provides this option is because, in a single PO you might have multiple items & each one of those might have to be transported in a different manner. But if no inco-term is maintained at item level, then the header level inco-term is used.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Regards,

    Vivek

    Mr. Sudhakar,

    If your question has been answered, can you be kind enough to award suitable points & close this thread?

    It is nice to ask questions, but would much better if you show some responsibility in rewarding points & closing the thread if your question has been answered, if not post back for clarification.
