Craete Sales Order with reference to Schedule Agreement

Dear All,

I want to create a sales order with reference to a schedule agreement.


In case of quantity shortages in delivery of the schedule agreement line item (Doc type - ZDS), customer want to send a replacement for the balance.

This replacement is send using a new sales order (Doc type - ZREP). So the requirement is to refer the schedule agreement to keep the link between initial schedule agreement & the replacement order.

I have maintain the relevant copy controls as well. (ZDS to ZREP)

I have 2 type of item categories used in the schedule agreement (ZDS).

LPN - this is for the normal delivery, billing. (Billing relevance - A in the Item category)

ZPN - this is just to do the manufacturing. No delivery billing is done using this type. (Have Billing Relevance -BLANK)

So when I try to create a Sales order w.r.t. Schedule agreement, only lines with ZPN shows me in the copying dialog.

But I want to copy lines with LPN, not lines with ZPN.

Any idea how to solve this?

Thanks a lot !

    Kindly check the Item Category Determination in VOV4 with LPN.Here check the Item Category Group and then compare the same in the Material Master.

    Also check the Copy control whether both the Item Category has been maintained between Scheduling Agreement Type & Sales Order Type.

    Best Regards,

    I am having one doubt in requirement.

    Then replacement material which you are saying is what?

    Do you send some other material to the customer other than the required material.

    Are you save both the material in the scheduling agreement or not?

    Go to VTAA and select your schedule agreement and sales order combination.

    Go the item level and see whether LPN has been maintained or not.

    Go to the schedule line and check your schedule line category has been there or not.

    Save these setting and check out your result once again.

      Thanks you very much for all replies !!!

      Dear Raj/Ankur,

      This replacement is due to quality issue in the initial sent material.

      So I'm sending the same material I sent earlier from the schedule agreement LI. Only difference is to capture the replacement, I use sales order type ZREP (VA01) other than schedule agreement.

      To give you more info on this,

      They use Item category ZPN to produce semi-finished goods & keep it ready for that customer. Once customer asked it with specific color, they do color it & deliver & bill. To do delivery & billing they use Item category LPN.

      Therefore each Scheduel agreement, they have one line with ZPN - only to production.

      one or more LI's with LPN - to do subsequent delivery & billing for that customer.

      So replacement should be created with reference to the LI with LPN. Because my initial delivery happened from that LI.

      Everything is in place as you have mentioned.

      I have maintained copy controls from ZDS to ZREP

      I have copy controls from Item Category LPN to my normal order Item category.

      I have schedule line copy control as well.

      Am I missing anything??

      And there is no issue with my Item category group & material master Item category group as well.
