data flow

Hi

For determining plant in sales order, system checks in order: customer material info record, customer master record and material master record.

For determining other elements in sales order, where does the system look at? Is there any general rule or logic system follows?

Thanks

    Hello,

    When you create a sales document without referring to a preceding document, the system copies the following data from the master records:

    Customer Master: Business partners, Pricing, tax determination, delivery scheduling, Payment terms, output.

    Material Master: Tax determination, Weight/Volume, Availability check, delivery scheduling, Shipping controls, plant.

    Some data in the sales document consists of a combination of different factors, such as customer and material, and cannot therefore be copied directly from the customer or material master records to the document. Instead, the system has to determine the data separately for the different factors at different times.

    For example, when you configure your system for Sales and Distribution, you can save the data for different routes separately from the master data, dependent on the location of the delivery plant and the ship-to party. As long as the necessary data has been saved, the system can then determine the route automatically during sales order processing. Prices, Dicounts, Surcharges, shipping point..etc are determined by the system.

    If you create a sales document with reference to a preceding document, the system copies nearly all the data from the preceding document.

    As a general rule, SAP looks from the highest level of data to the lowest.

    Thus, when creating a sales order, it will look at the organizational master data first, followed by the customer master data, followed by the material data.

    Dear Tarun

    Other elements like Partner Functions, shipping conditons, delivery priority will be referred from customer master. Conditions like pr00 and other discount condition types from condition record (VK11), tax will be determined based on your tax code in UTXJ.

    thanks
