    if yes how it will be work for credit management.

    Please go through my above suggestion once again where I have clearly mentioned to have a new item category which can be changed manually in sale order after making the required configuration in VOV4

    Will the customer be debited with some minimum value even for that sample sales? If not, why dont you consider generating proforma for such sample sales? Moreover, I am not clear on your statement of

    with material code mentioned "SAMPLE".

    Do you mean to say, material code itself is sample? In that case, how do you differentiate with multiple sample materials? Ideally, instead of differentiating with material, you should have gone for differentiating the document type, so that, from reporting perspective also, this would be helpful to generate a report on sample sales.

    Not sure what item category you set but you can try with some item category for which the credit check is not activated, Of course, you need to assign this item category in VOV4 under manual item category so that you can change it manually while creating sample sale order

    Hi,

    As mentioned by G Lakshmipathi you can differentiate the Sample orders from the Actual Orders and deactivate the Credit check for the new Order Type.

    The credit control area is one of the parameters for credit control in the sales order, but it is not the only possible way to control credit relevance, status and checks.

    I would not recommend a separate sales area just to have different treatment from credit perspective. Especially when a new sales area means a lot of master data changes in a live environment.

    The main problem is that there is no good explanation of the business case and what is understood in the organization by VKM3 block - there are different forms of credit checks and it is unclear which of them are undesirable.

    There is also no explanation what is the expected outcome when in the same order there are sample and non-sample items (this is possible with the current setup, unless somebody added verification via custom code, in which case one starts to wonder how reasonable is the proposed design).

    There is no explanation why a dedicated order type for samples is not acceptable - "we don't want to" is not a valid argument.

    It is not clear what is meant by "regular customers". What types of customers need to be considered for bypassing credit checks just for sample materials and for which this should not happen? How are these customers identified?

    And it is not a very good idea to use master data fields that are intended for a completely different purpose (even if they are currently not used), because if one day the company decides to use packaging this may complicate the situation.

    Without a good explanation is not possible to provide good suggestions.

    Hi Atul,

    As long as there is Credit Control Area determined during your SO creation. Your SO is subjected to credit check. System determines the credit control area from following order:

    1. User exit - check whether you have user exit to determine control control area
    2. Credit control area of the payer (XD03) - new sales area customer without default credit control area
    3. Credit control area of the Sales Area (OVFL) - new sales area customer without default credit control area
    4. Credit control area of the Company Code (OB38) - if i remember correctly, it is for direct FI customer invoice posting not SD. you can test to confirm

    Hence, you can try to create another sales area for sample material.

    Thanks.
