sales order types

Hi,

How do we maintain the sales order doc types?

when the client has business across the globe,

Is it maintained country wise like,

for eg:India ZIOR,ZIDR,ZICR etc,for China ZCOR,ZCDR,ZCCR and so on,

If we maintain like this, say for 20 countries we have to maintain many sales doc types.

what is the standard practice of having minium sales order doc types?

pls write,

Regards

SR

    Hello Syed,

    What is the drive/idea behind country specific sales doc types?

    The client would have some idea like handling taxes, or something else which, I guess is the basis for creating country-specific sales doc types.

    And further, even if you create country specific when you actually create a sales order--the system is NOT going to recognise the country and map it to the corresponding doc type..there is not country specific setting in a sales doc type, as far as I know.

    If you find out, probably we can help you further .

    Rgds,

    Raghu.

    In my opinion,sometimes you could try to use item cat.instead of order type .users always request to have many sales order type to identify what it is just like FG,Parts,Warranty Parts and so on.we use the same order type with different item cat. to avoid lots of order type because it's not easy to manage them.

    Dear SR

    Both your sale order types and pricing procedures can be based on the products through which it is distributed, viz. domestic, exports, STO and Depot. If the style of business in domestic pricing is entirely different, may be you can go for different pricing procedures. It is always better to have minimum document types and pricing procedures.

    Last but not least, I feel maintaining sale document type country wise is not necessary.

    thanks

      Hi,

      Thanks,

      We already have many sales doc types, if the common sales doc type are proposed, i think there will be an impact on the below,

      current ZReports

      pricing procedure determination

      output control

      No ranges

      Is there any other areas/processes which may get affected, if we propose common doc types.

      pls suggest

      Regards

      SR

    Hi,

    The best way is just maintain common sales document types for all countries.. Any way for domesting and exports these are all will be configured in material master and customer master for relevant taxes..

    So any how sales documents are not country specific...
