How to get multiple classifications to write out to /SAPSLL/CORCTS when creating an import CD?

Hi All

I will do my best to explain my issue here but I am still pretty new to GTS. We are running 11.0

We have created some Z classifications against our products in GTS and would like these to appear in /SAPSLL/CORCTS and /SAPSLL/CTSNUM when we create an Import document prior to Goods Receipt. We have defined a numbering scheme for tariff numbers for Harmonized Tariff Codes and these are creating fine.

We would also like our Z classifications to be written to these tables. I know you can only assign one import scheme for tariff numbers.

Is there a way we can link this classification maybe via additional codes so that when we create an import customs document the Z classification data will be written to /SAPSLL/CORCTS and /SAPSLL/CTSNUM?

If not then maybe upon creation we need to write our Z classification data to these tables through development - However I am trying to resist this. If development is the only answer I would like to know what program/FM writes the data to these tables.

Thanking you all in advance.

    Hi Alex,

    When you say Z classification, do you mean:

    - Z numbering scheme (done through customizing) ?

    - Z classifications values ?

    - Z tables to hold classfications ?

    - Anything else?

    As well, the purpose of the tables you mention is different:

    /SAPSLL/CTSNUM will have the list of possible classification values/codes and /SAPSLL/CORCTS will have a classification value/code used by a specific GTS document. So, do you mean that when an Import Declaration is created, the user can then enter a classification code not existing in CTSNUM? After the user enters the classification in the document, then CTSNUM gets updated with a new value?

    Finally, bear in mind that there other tables involved in the classification process (/SAPSLL/CTSGEN, /SAPSLL/CTSNUMC, /SAPSLL/CTSNUMT, etc...)

    Hi Alex,

    As Mouaz has already said, I think we need to know more about those new classifications, if not too confidential.

    It sounds like you are describing a possible solution, but would perhaps be better if you can describe the requirement instead.

    Hi Mouaz and Dave

    Many thanks for you replies.

    Sorry I should have been clearer. We have created new numbering schemes for Additional Tariff Numbers - We actually did this for End Use as we had multiple End Uses for a product and needed this to be determined by the user. However these additional tariff numbers were not be written to the tables above. We managed to do this in the end but needed custom development.

    Kind regards

    • Hi Alex,

      Not sure you needed anything special to handle the End Use as this is a standard feature in SAP GTS.

      You can define End Use codes in the customizing:

      Global Trade Services > General Settings > Numbering Schemes > Define End Uses for Numbering Scheme of Tariff Numbers

      Once defined, you can assign the End Use codes to the Numbering Schemes.

      The End Use field will then appear in the Product master data, under the Classification tab.
