    HI VAMSI,

    Update 15 and 18 will be used in credit management. This update will be assigned in define credit control area(t.code ob45) .This update will be used in automatic credit control. like where u want to check

    if u assign in update 15 it will consider the following documents open delivery and billing document value

    if u assign in update 18it will consider the following documents open delivery value for sales order and open billing value

    if u assign in update 18it will consider the following documents open ordervalue,delivery and billing document value.

    so as per the update u assign in credit control area , accordingly it will check.

    hope u got some solution.

    regards,

    ram

    Hi vamsi,

    These update groups will be used depends on the risk categories of the customer , say for example if the customer is high risk, we can choose the update (which can be consider only open sales order and delivery doc. value,) if the customer is low risk , we can choose the update( which consider the open delivery and billing doc.value).

    it means if the customer is high risk, the company will ristrict him at delivery level,

    if the customer is low risk , the company will allow him till the billing. and billing block will be released after he maintain proper credit balance .

    regards,

    • Hi,

      These update group can be used for one credit control area wise-

      you can have more than one credit control area for company code-

      eg: instead of maintaining company code wise you can maintain credit control area - sales area wise.

      as we know update group cant change in customer credit master & it can be changed only at the time creation of cr control area.

      eg: you have 1000 customers - out of this prospective/priority customers.

      generally, with the update group - u can control whether system should take only open orders & open deliveries into consideration-& open del -open items has to be ignored,then you un-check the tick boxes in OVA8 for "open order & open delivery"-

      this is only for specific cusotmer.

      But for large no-of customers its bit difficult to follow ( as they might fall into diff risk cat-)

      in this case, instead maintain setting in OVA8-better to use the update group - in cr control area.

      still it has many implications before following this- need to have elaborate discussion with FI dept before proceeding.

      experts: plz lets have any more ideas- n let me know if u found anything not correct in above
