Hi SAP guru and expert,

Would like to know that how the vendor information being maintained in the customer master at the T-code BP as S/4 HANA so that the shipping point can be picked up at ME2O to create Delivery Order?

Is the Customer accounting group number important in T-code BP in order for the shipping point to be automatically determined?

The configuration for this transaction has been done as stated below:-

1. Each of the material code in the B.O.M and B.O.M maintenance has been done with Sales Tab information maintained, item category NORM being selected and the material is meant for subcontracting and MRP run, loading group and transporting group is maintained.

2. Sales Area maintained in BP for Sales Tab.

3. Document type LB has been maintained for plant in OLME.

4. shipping point that to be assigned to the loading group also being maintained in SPRO.

5. Shipping point determination by plant and storage location has been done.

Just that my end here not sure why the shipping point is auto populated in ME2O which create Delivery Order and causing the DO cannot be created and hitting the error

Essential transfer parameters are missing in record: 000001

Message no. VL561

As a result of that, would like to seek for some advise whether the maintenance of customer account group in SP is important to trigger the shipping point.

Thank you

I actually doubt that SAP has changed the logic in S4 which is around for at least 17 years since R/3 4.6

In ME2O you should get a pop-up with the essential parameters, if one of these is empty then message VL561 is triggered, which as well lists the essential parameters per business case in its longtext.

Please read OSS note 199360 - Creation of a SD delivery from TA ME2O

it explains all needed settings to create a delivery for subcontracting.
