    Trading Goods

    Trading goods are movable goods intended for commercial exchange. Examples of trading goods are market goods, consumption goods and durable goods. Trading goods are always bought and re-sold by your company. The material master record for trading goods therefore always contains purchasing data and sales data. Trading goods are managed in the SAP System using the key HAWA.

    Hope it helps..

      Thanks a lot !

      But as u must've seen Both HAWA & PLAN contain purchasing & sales View .PLAN suits my scenario better as it is non stock n non valuated . But still , my client will have to go for a PO with the vendor & SO with the customer , which he doesnt do now. If a PO is made we will have to do a GR.

      Is there any way that i can completely do away with PO/GR .
