    Dear,

    Please find below, which I found by search and posted by fellow collegues earlier....

    Default quantity for goods receipt

    In the standard system, the quantity open to date from the last- transmitted SA release is used in the case of scheduling agreements with release documentation (document type LPA). In the case of scheduling agreements without release documentation (document type LP), the open quantity to date is used.

    Document Type of Scheduling Agreement

    As a rule, the APO scheduling agreement in the SAP R/3 system is a scheduling agreement with the document type LP or a scheduling agreement without release documentation.

    If you use scheduling agreements of the document type LPA without confirmation control key then no default quantities can be determined from the release upon goods receipt.

    If you use scheduling agreements of the document type LPA with confirmation control key then the default quantities from the confirmation (shipping notification) are used.

    As a rule, the OLTP scheduling agreement in the SAP R/3 System is a scheduling agreement with the document type LPA.

    A scheduling agreement is a longer trem agreement with a vendor covering the supply of materials subject to predefined conditions.The conditions are valid for a pre defined period and a pre defined total purchase order quantity.

    You can enter the Target value in the header data of the scheduling agreement.You can enter the Target quantity in the item overview for each item

    You can use scheduling agreement with or without release documentation.The advantage of working with scheduliing agreement release documentation is that you always have a record of when you sent which delivery schedule information to your vendor,which you can display at any time.

    Without release documentation(Document type LP)

    The delivery schedule lines have official character-that is to say,they are transmitted to the vendor as they are saved in the system.The system does not document in detail releases aganist the scheduling agreement that have been sent to the vendor.Therefore,in the case of the document type without release documentation,the message control facility should be set up in such a way that a message is immediately sent to vendor if any changes are made to the delivey schedule stored in the system.

    With release documnetation(Document type LPA)

    If you use scheduling agreement with release documentation,the delivery schedule lines are not transmitted directly to the vendor.Intially ,the lines of the delivery schedule stored in the system for an LPA scheduling agreement for an internal information only.A message informing the vendor of your material requirements cannot be transmitted to the vendor until you explicitly create an SA release,that is forecast (FRC) or Just in Time(JIT) delivey schedule.Through this process,you can change the way schedule lines are represented.With release documentation,you can disply the SA releases(delivery schedules) transmitted to a vendor over a certain period of any time.This enables you to trace precisely when you sent which information to vendor.

    Regards,

    Syed Hussain.

    Hi,

    - With release documentation (in the standard system, document type LPA)

    The schedule lines in the system have internal character. This means that you can change them in any way you wish. The schedule lines stored in the system are not transmitted to the vendor until you explicitly create a scheduling agreement release (which may take one of two forms: a forecast delivery schedule or a JIT delivery schedule).

    The release documentation allows you to display the releases transmitted to a vendor over a certain period in order to establish exactly when you transmitted which information to the vendor.

    - Without release documentation (in the standard system, document type LP)

    The schedule lines immediately have official character, i.e. they are immediately transmitted to the vendor the moment you save them (transmission time-spot 4 for messages). There is no release documentation in this case.
