    hello, friend.

    yes, it is possible to change sales document types in saved orders.

    let's say you have 2 document types you want to be interchangeable: ZOR1 and ZOR2. in configuration, go to the document types (VOV8). in the field for "alt. sales doc. type1", enter "ZOR2" for ZOR1, and "ZOR1" for ZOR2. save the configuration.

    now when you create or change a sales order, you will note a different Overview screen. just above the field for Req. deliv. date you will see the field for Sales Doc. type, and beside this you will see radio buttons for your alternate sales doc types.

    to change the doc type, you just need to click on the other radio button and press ENTER. the doc type should change.

      in addition to the procedures, in config there are certain pre-requisites before alternate sales doc types can be set. these are:

      1. sales doc type must not be blocked

      2. the type must not have an indicator

      3. the item category determination must be compatible

      additional settings that must "agree" are:

      Document payment guarantee procedure

      Partner determination procedure

      Text determination procedure

      Status procedure

      Pricing hierarchy category

      Billing plan type/invoicing plan

      Payment card type

      Promotion/receiving point determination (Customizing settings for retail)

      Commitment dates

      Payment card checking group

      hope this helped you.
