How can you enable the transaction code VA01 to support product barcode scanning?

Hello Colleagues,

I have a customer who wants to use the SD transaction code VA01 (create sales order) on a laptop at the store level, wants to connect a Zebra hand scanner to the laptop via a USB wire, and wants to add products to VA01 via scanning the product barcode.

The issue is, the barcode includes the GTIN (or EAN number), the app requires the article number and does not recognize the GTIN and issues an error.

The customer is looking for a way to enhance the VA01 so the app can identify the article number via the GTIN automatically.

Does anyone have an experience and know of a workaround?

Thank you,

    Hi Alireza,

    This can be realized by implementing a user exit, which converts the GTIN to article number, eg. here:
