    Normally the customzing will be done by SD Consultant but the Credit master should be mainatined by the FI user as they will be deciding on the Credit limit of the customer.

    Dear Varada,

    Go to SPRO->Sales and Distribution->Basic Functions->Credit Management/Risk Management->Credit Management

    Basically there are 2 types of credit check one is Simple credit check and the other one is Automatic credit check - This has both Static and Dynamic credit checks

    The purpose of doing a credit check is to segregate and find out who are the good paymasters and based on that the customer can be delivered the material.For eg.if a credit limit of 20000 is set against a customer and if he has not paid for his previous materials which is worth 20000 and again when the customers place an order the system will not allow to raise a sales order against this customer.

    Once you go to the path and read the help document you can easily understand.

    Other than that as far as setting are concerned:

    Settings for determining the credit control area of a document. The settings of items 1 - 4 are taken into account according to their priority. The credit control area found is stored in field VBAK-KKBER.

    OB45, or the credit control area must be entered under the relevant company code in table

    T001CM of the credit control areas allowed.

    Definition of the risk category for each credit control area. This risk category can be

    assigned to a credit account by using Transaction FD32.

    10. Transaction OVA8

    Here, the individual credit checks for key fields

    o credit control area

    o risk category

    o credit group are set. Take these key fields from the above settings and go to the detail

    screen. In particular, check whether fields "Reaction" and "Status/block" are set

    correctly. To carry out follow-up actions in case of a credit block, the credit check

    status must be set (field "Status/block").

    field "Active receivable" in Transaction VOV7.

    Item type:

    14. Transaction V/08, Pricing

    In the pricing procedure used for pricing, subtotal "A" must be entered in a line for

    determining the credit value (mark the pricing procedure and doubleclick on "Control").

    Usually, the net value plus taxes is used. This way the system is determined to use this

    subtotal for credit pricing. The credit price is stored in field VBAP-CMPRE and used for

    update and credit check.

    You can find the used pricing procedure of the order under "Item -> Condition -> Analysis".

    Pricing procedure:

    Line with subtotal = 'A':

    15. Transaction OB45

    Which update group (field "Update") do you use in the relevant credit control area? The

    default setting is "12". If you use another update group, check whether this is fine with

    you. If you open an OSS message, please tell us the alternative update group.

    Credit control area:


    16. Transaction OMO1

    Which kind of update did you choose for structure S066?

    In any case, "Synchronous update (1)" has to be chosen as the kind of update.

    All other settings will lead to errors.

    Hope this helps you.
