    Then compare the fields from VBAK with the entry from your first screenshot.

    If Sales org, distribution channel, division and sales document type match then you may need to check your exists, where you eventually replace this information or the batch search procedure itself before the batch determination is carried out.

    • Dear Mahesh,

      Search class and sorting rule defined and these are working as well, only problem with search procedure determination, because in run time mode if i am putting search procedure only auto batch determination working perfectly, so other condition are working. Only in likp table KALSM_CH data is not getting though i have done require search procedure determination settings.

      I have shared those screenshot.

      Thanking you,

    The delivery type for a replenishment delivery (which is the delivery to a STO) is either NL (intra-company STO) or NLCC (intercompany STO)

    The customizing path which was mentioned in the KBA can be reached directly with 0VLK transaction.

    In the delivery type customizing detail screen is a field for "default order type". This information is not visible in any of your screenshots.

    And SAP wants you to assign the default order type to your batch determination procedure.

    Based on your first screenshot you should have ZX as default order type in 0VLK

    And the sales area from your first screenshot has to correspond to the sales area in your customizing for STO > Define Shipping Data for Plants

    • Sorry for late reply,

      My Issue is happening for outbound delivery respect to order , in case of STO delivery batch determination is happening.

      I have read also implementation document in SPRO where written in case of delivery without order default order type is require.which you also answered.

      Thank you very much for your help sir,
