Urgent Issue :: Export data missing problem.

Hi Guys,

My client is facing very unique problem as below:

He has processed the whole SD cycle order till billing and foregin trade data was missing at the time of billling even thought system allowed him to save the billing and accounting document got created. Then he realised the missing data thing and he tried to cancell the invoice. He was able to cancell the invoice but accounting docuement was not created because of error " foreign trade data missing"

Now, kindly suggest me what can be done in this case? as eventhough I maintain the data it will not be picked up in these invoices as well as delivery. And everything is Greyed out hence not allowing to make any changes.

    Dear Hrishikesh,

    You can disable the default checking with the followings steps :-

    1) Setup Incompletion Schemas for both the Header and Item. (transaction VI29). It is here that you define what fields should be populated as part of the Foreign Trade check in billing. The default has three fields. You only need to created new ones with only one field, and set that field's incompletion control check to inactive. Setting up the Export/Dispatch setting will do the trick.


    New entries

    Descriptions No checking for header No checking for item

    Incompletion procedures name e.g. Z1 Z2

    Header/Item Level A B

    Export/Import 2 2

    Origin field EXPRF EXPRF

    Fld ctrol/Inc. 1 1

    2) For each country from which you ship goods, assign the incompletion schemas to that country under the Export/Dispatch

    setting. VI49 - Foreign Trade Data in MM and SD Documents.


    Country US

    Export/Import 2

    Incomplete header data Z1

    Incomplete item data Z2

    Reward if helpful

      if have got a problem with the Incompletion Schemas in delivery. I would like to give a warning when some fields in Export data of a delivery position are empty. So I created a check for the positions in transaction VI29. After that I did VI49 to assign the check to a country.

      Then I created a order and tried to create a delivery for this order with missing export data and there was no warning. When I go to the foreign trade/customs-data of the postion in the delivery, where the data is missing and try to save the warning appears. Why does the warning not appear when I same the delivery in overview?
