    hi,

    The customer's credit exposure is split into a static part; open items, open billing, and delivery values and a dynamic part, the open order value.

    The open order value includes all undelivered or only partially delivered orders. The value is calculated on the shipping date and stored in an information structure according to a time period that you specify (days, weeks, or months).

    When you define the credit check, you can then specify a particular horizon date in the future (for example: 10 days or 2 months, depending on the periods you specify).

    For the purposes of evaluating credit, you want the system to ignore all open orders that are due for delivery after the horizon date. The sum of the static and dynamic parts of the check may not exceed the credit limit.

    regards,

    Siddharth

    How To Do Configuration For Credit Management

    Credit and risk management takes place in the credit control area. According to your corporate requirements, you can implement credit management that is centralized, decentralized, or somewhere in between.

    An organizational unit that represents the area where customer credit is awarded and monitored. This organizational unit can either be a single or several company codes, if credit control is performed across several company codes. One credit control area contains credit control information for each customer.

    For example, if your credit management is centralized, you can define one credit control area for all of your company codes.

    If, on the other hand, your credit policy requires decentralized credit management, you can define credit control areas for each company code or each group of company codes.

    Credit limits and credit exposure are managed at both credit control area and customer level. You set up credit control areas and other data related to credit management in Customizing for Financial Accounting. The implementation guide is under Enterprise Structure -> Definition or Assignment -> Financial Accounting and then Maintain credit control area. You assign customers to specific credit control areas and specify the appropriate credit limits in the customer master record.

    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.

    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

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

    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").

    Credit Management

    The customer’s credit limit is assigned to the customer by going to the Logistics overview screen, Accounting, Financial accounting, Accounts receivable, Master records, Credit management, Change.

    A credit control area is an organizational unit that is comprised of one or more company codes.

    Create a credit control area and assign it to a company code in the Enterprise structure under financial accounting.

    A customer’s risk category is a grouping category that controls the credit checks when automatic credit control takes place.

    In SD credit check can occur in only three places: sales order, delivery and goods issue.

    The system can use a simple credit check, static credit check or a dynamic credit check.

    The simple credit check is set at the document type level e.g., sales order, delivery etc.

    Simple Credit Check

    Assign credit limit check to the sales doc type:

    A – warning message

    B – Error message

    C – Delivery block

    D – Automatic credit control

    SAP enables static and dynamic credit checks so that a sales order for a good customer with a low risk credit rating is created and a sales order for a high risk customer with a high risk rating for the same doc type is blocked.

    Automatic credit control divides the sales doc types, delivery doc types, and goods issue into specific credit groups.

    An outcome procedure is defined using the credit group, the customer’s risk category along with the credit control area.

    Risk categories are defined in the FI module.

    Create the different credit groups e.g., for sales order, delivery, goods issue.

    Assign the credit groups to the sales and delivery doc types.

    Now define the settings for automatic credit control -> combination of credit control area, customer’s risk category, and credit group.

    All that remains is the assignment of the risk category to the customer master record. This occurs in Finance by going to the Logistics overview screen -> Accounting, Financial Accounting, Accounts receivable, Master records, Credit management, Change or FD32.

    The static credit check is a check comparing the credit limit assigned to the customer to the total value of open sales orders, plus the total value of open deliveries not yet invoiced, plus the total value of open billing documents not yet passed on to accounting, plus the total value of billing documents that have been passed on to accounting, but which have not been paid by the customer.

    The dynamic credit check is a check comparing the credit limit assigned to the customer to the total value of open sales orders not yet delivered, plus the total value of open deliveries not yet invoiced, plus the total value of open billing documents not yet passed on to accounting, plus the total value of billing documents that have been passed on to accounting, but which have not been paid by the customer. The dynamic credit check has an attached time period that states that the system is not to include sales orders in the total of outstanding items created after the specified time period.

    The credit relevant data is updated into an information structure, where it is accessed and updated. Thus each automatic credit control must be assigned an update group. The system allows for no update, and update group 000012, 000015 and 000018. However, update group 000012 is thorough and used in most businesses.

    To view the customer’s credit master sheet, proceed from the logistics screen and go to accounting, financial accounting, accounts receivable, environment, credit management, check, credit master sheet [F.35].

    Configuration steps have already been covered by previous responding member.

    Rajesh Banka
