Dear SD Experts,

I'm new to Foreign Trade Data maintenance in SD.

When I am releasing Billing document to accounting, I'm getting error message that "Foreign Trade Data Incomplete". I checked in Billing document in Header Data & Item Data certain foreign trade data is missing. The errors are as below.


Mode of Transport for Foreign Trade

Domestic Mode of Transport for Foreign Trade


Business Transaction Type for Foreign Trade

Export/Import Procedure for Foreign Trade

Commodity Code/Import Code Number for Foreign Trade

Business Case:

Goods will be moved from one company code in Middle East to another company code in Malaysia. And goods will be sold in south east Asia from 2nd company code. Inter-company stock transfer is successful but at the time sale to local customer this error triggered. There is no impact on taxes in Malaysia or middle east.

As of now I don't see any Foreign trade configuration for Middle East country or Malaysia. Please help me understand what are the depending settings I need to do to make this process work.

Normally, system would trigger this error message, if the Shipping Point country differs from Ship To country. Have a look at OSS note 1459330 where couple of options are given to deactivate this, if your Client don't want this
