Number of foreign trade data

Hi,

In the delivery document at the header level in the Foreign/Trade Customs tab page, there is a field 'Number of foreign trade data'.

For export sales every time I create a delivery document, the number is created internally and it is also copied to the billing document .

My question, what exactly is this Number of Foreign trade data. What is its significance?

Also I would like to know where you maintain the settings for this number in the system.

I am not able to find out how for this particular delivery type how the system is generating the number.

Regards

Mohan

      You just maintain the Number Range Interval as 01 .it will automatically pick the subsequent number for each delivery at IMG > SD > Foreign Trade/Customs > General Import/Export Processing.

    When you create a delivery that is related to export (different destination country), the system creates an export data record, which data you can see in the foreign trade header and item data in the delivery. Actually, this data is stored in tables EIKP (header), and EIPO (item). The tables are keyed on the foreign trade data number EXNUM, The delivery header LIKP contains the field EXNUM, which provides the link to the foreign trade data.

    When you create the billing document, depending on yur copy control settings, it can either do the following:

    1. Reference the data from the delivery (uses same EXNUM).

    2. Copy the data from the delivery (uses a new EXNUM, copying the data from the delivery EXNUM).

    3. Redetermines the data (uses a new EXNUM, redetermining the data from master data).

      Hi Richard,

      Thank you for your response.

      Your reply has almost answered my question.

      However I need one more clarification from you.

      In the tcode XEIP, the number range for these export documents has been maiantined.

      I would like to know is will it create any error while creating the delivery doc if I remove this number range in customization??

      Awaiting your response

      With regards

      Mohan
