Is there a standard way to default the payment terms, and possibly other values in the IS-U contract account?

    Area Menu code for contract account : CAWM

    CAWM is the t-code for Business Data Tool Set for CONTRACT ACCOUNT.

    SAP menu->Contract Account Control ->Events .

    We can use inialisation event to default the values in the CAA1 t-code.

      Hi Siva,

      Thank you for the reply. I choose the initialization event (ISSA) but it takes me to the function module screen and I would like to know how to use that screen to set up the default values for contact account (e.g. payment terms)

      Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hi Mashudu,

    Payment terms is set in the contract account (CAA2) for the CA postings.

    If you mean defaulting field values, you need to use 'parameter ID'. After setting desired value(s) for a parameter ID in tcode SU3, when you open up the transaction the values will be there as default and it's changeable (e.g Field Contract Account & Currency in FPR1 - parameter IDs for these are KTO & FWS respectively).

    Not all fields have Parameter IDs, but you can find out using F1 help and then click 'Technical Setting' icon.

    Best of luck,

    David

    • Mashudu:

      You have several choices for defaulting values depending on the customer requirements:

      Parameter Ids can be provided in user defaults area (almost all transactions and screens but dependent on the application programmers desire to use them)

      transaction variants can be created and maintained (most but no all transactions can be used with variants)

      CAWM - Contract account area menu - this utilizes business data toolset functionality.

      For more info - check the website

      FICA event 1017 - utilizes standard FICA event technique. Search other posts for FQEVENTS, i.e.

    Hi,

    You can use Event 1017 to define values with which contract account fields are to be preassigned in CA maintenance.

      Hi Lalitha,

      Thank you for the response. However, may you please provide me with the exact steps to set up the default value using event 1017. Also, I can't seem to find this event (1017). There only one that seems relevant is the initialisation (ISSTA) but this takes me to a screen to define the function module and I am not sure how to proceed. Please advice.
