    hi,

    This key is used to define the tolerances in the system to be determined while posting your GR...

    You can provide its values in PO item details...

    For eg:

    If the over del is 5% and under del. is 1% then you cant post Gr for more than 5 % and less then 1%....ie. by this we restrict the postings...

    You will never need the overdel. 100% , it will be very less ...

    If you use overdel 100% then other way you use Unlimited delievery indicator.....

    In other way i can say no company want or likes have so much extra matrl which is of no...and on it need to pay for so much extra matrl...

    CHECK THE LINK ITD VERY VERY USEFULL:

    Hi,

    Go to SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Material Master > Define Purchasing Value Keys and maintain it here.

    Purchasing Value Keys: - In the material master record, you can store rules governing:

    - The issue of reminders and urging letters (expediters) with respect to nearly due and overdue deliveries

    - The admissibility of over- and underdeliveries ("overages" and "underages")

    - Order acknowledgment requirements for PO items

    - Shipping/packaging instructions

    In this step, you stipulate these rules in the purchasing value key.

    This data appears as default data in purchasing documents and is taken from the material master record (unless a purchasing info record exists, in which case it is taken from the latter source).

    Purchasing Value Key:

    A key defining the valid reminder days and tolerance limits applicable to this material for the purchasing department.

    The purchasing value key serves as a data entry aid.

    In the material master record, you can store rules governing:

    The issue of reminders and urging letters (expediters) with respect to nearly due and overdue deliveries

    The admissibility of over- and underdeliveries ("overages" and "underages")

    Order acknowledgment requirements for PO items

    Shipping/packaging instructions

    In this step, you stipulate these rules in the purchasing value key.

    This data appears as default data in purchasing documents and is taken from the material master record (unless a purchasing info record exists, in which case it is taken from the latter source).
