    Dear Laa,

    This is due to not done the itemcategory definition and determination.So

    First you define the itemcategory SUBC through VOV7 transaction (By copying standard TAN)

    Then do the itemcategory determination through VOV4 transaction for this combination

    Sales document type+Itemcategory group--->Itemcategory

    Itemcategory group is different from itemcategory.

    Itemcategory group maintained in the Material master data

    The item categroy will get determine in the sales order based on Sales document type+Itemcategory group

    I hope this will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

    Well only thing you can do is to double check whether the assignment is there for your sales document type or not.

    Also, the Item catg group in the Sales org 2 tab of the material master is what matters for the determination.

    Also, if you can paste the exact error than it would be even more useful. Generally the error mssg would give the combination for which you have not assigned the item catgegory.
