Is it possible to create multiple deliveries for Text items in Sales Order


I have a question and request your help on this and thanks in advance for your co-operation and support. I have a business scenario, where business wants to do the back orders(multiple deliveries) for a text items.

System is allowing to create multiple deliveries for a standard item. In this context, the customer and material used is same. Where as the order types are different: ZOR and ZNI. For the order type: ZOR, the item category: ZO22. The item type is 'blank' - Standard item in the configuration of Item category. But, for the other order type: ZNI, the item category: ZONI. The item type is B - Text item.

Though, Order is raised for the 10 qty in both the scenarios for the same customer and material, I able to create multiple partial deliveries for the standard order: ZOR. But, for the other order type: ZNI, I able to create only one delivery. Here, i'm doing the partial delivery by changing the delivery qty and order qty in the delivery document from intial 10 qty to 5 qty. as per the business reqt. When, i try to create another delivery for the open items in the referenced SO, system is giving an error message: "No Delivery(Open) related items in the referenced SO for the order type: ZNI(Actually, here there are 5 qty in open).

I have done some of the possible checks in configuration settings:

! Item category: ZONI is checked as Item relevant for delivery, so as successfully able to create one delivery.

! Schedule lines in the sales order are fully confirmed.

! Partial deliveries allowed in the sales document

! No check for the 'complete delivery'.

! Copy controls are fine and same as standard ones.

! Schedule line category is same as standard ones.

So, my query is, is it possible to create a multiple deliveries for a text items in SAP?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

    Hi Sujit,

    We can do multiple deliveries even for text items also,but need to consider some constraints.

    Partial Delivery: If Customer allows for partial deliveries for an item, corresponding indicator can be setup in Customer master Shipping data or in Sales document header.

    Order Combination :This should be inactive in customer master record.

    This is actually a feature in Order to combine orders, order items or partially deliveries of individual order items in one delivery if this is agreed with customer.

    Delivery Groups:This field shold not be ticked .

    Hope it helps.

      Hi Sash,

      I able to view the Delivery group field in the Overview screen of Sales order in shipping tab. There the value is '0' and has no indicator option as you mentioned. Pl. let me know where we can maintain the values for this 'Delivery group' field.

      Thanks for your reply.
