    Dear Sudipto,

    Payment terms at Header level applies to the entire document, while Payment terms at Item level applies only to that particular item.

    You can have different payment terms at Header & Item level in Sales Document provided you have required settings in Sales Document (VOV8) in Business Data check box.

    Hope this helps...

    Give points if useful...

    Thanks,

    Hi Sudipto

    *The settings is done in the "Item category" and not in the Sales document.

    *Go to VOV7, choose your Item category, in the field "Business Item", if you checked it, then separate business data is allowed at Item level.

    For example, if you have given some Payment term in the header lavel, that will beapplicable to all item.

    If you have activated the "Business item "field in the item category,then that item can have different payment term as compared to header and it is applicable to that item only.

    Hi there,

    In a sales order, all the header details will be copied into the items details.

    But under some circumstances, we can change the details at the item level.

    In VOV7, for item catg, there is a setting called Bus data item in business data view. If you check that field, then system will allow to change the item details. It means that business data at header level (like payment terms, delivery instructions) can be different from those at item level.

    So in your case, if the item catg TAN allows business data tio be diferent, then you can change the payment terms at item level. It means that for that item, customer can choose a different payment terms.

    For eg bus data item in TAN is checked. Consider payment terms in your order header is 0001. Same will be copied into items as well. But you can change 001 to 0002 at item level. Again at the header level if you change 0001 to 0003, data at item level still remains 0002 (no change at item level even header is changed)

    Regards,
