Credit Control Area Determination

Hi, guys,

I have 2 companies, 1000 (local currency US$) & 1001(local currency HK$) , only one Credit Control Area 1000 and one controlling area 1000 (currency US$).

I have ...

assigned the 2 company codes to the CCA 1000 with OB38,

assigned all the sales areas to the CCA 1000 with OVFL, (sales org. 1000 & 1001, corresponding to the same Co.code)

permitted CCA per Co.code with OBZK,

checked the 'All' in OB45,

maintained all the credit check configures,

and I gave the right CCA 1000 to the customers with XD01


When I created a sales order, I received an error message V1 148, 'Credit control area 1001 has not been defined', how come the CCA 1001 was determined? Any step I missed? pls help me out, thanks a lot!

    Have u maintained the Risk Category in the TCode FD32 (Credit Management Master Data).

    Also maintain the combination of Credit Control Area - Risk Category - Credit Group in the TCode - OVA8

    Pl recheck your entire config as given:

    Transaction OB38

    Check which credit control area is assigned to the company code.

    Company code:

    Credit control area:

    Transaction OVFL

    Check which credit control area is assigned to the sales area.

    Sales area:

    Credit control area:

    Transaction XD02 or VD02

    Check which credit control area is assigned to the payer.


    Credit control area:

    Transaction OBZK

    For the settings under items 2 - 4, field "All company codes" must be marked in Transaction

    OB45, or the credit control area must be entered under the relevant company code in table

    T001CM of the credit control areas allowed.

    Company code:

    Credit control areas allowed:

    Transaction OVAD

    Which settings do exist for the delivery type used?

    Delivery type:

    Credit group for delivery:

    Credit group for goods issue:

    Transaction OB01

    Credit management/Change risk category

    Definition of the risk category for each credit control area. This risk category can be

    assigned to a credit account by using Transaction FD32.

    Transaction OVA8

    Here, the individual credit checks for key fields

    o credit control area

    o risk category

    o credit group are set. Take these key fields from the above settings and go to the detail

    screen. In particular, check whether fields "Reaction" and "Status/block" are set

    correctly. To carry out follow-up actions in case of a credit block, the credit check

    status must be set (field "Status/block").

    Transaction FD32

    Credit master data for the payer of the relevant document.

    Credit account:

    Credit limit:

    Risk category:


    Settings for updating the credit values Update of the credit values is required for the limit

    check (static or dynamic credit limit check).

    Transaction OVA7

    Update of the credit value is active for the corresponding item type if the check box is marked. This field corresponds to

    field "Active receivable" in Transaction VOV7.

    Item type:

    Active receivable:

    Transaction V/08, Pricing

    In the pricing procedure used for pricing, subtotal "A" must be entered in a line for

    determining the credit value (mark the pricing procedure and doubleclick on "Control").

    Usually, the net value plus taxes is used. This way the system is determined to use this

    subtotal for credit pricing. The credit price is stored in field VBAP-CMPRE and used for

    update and credit check.

    You can find the used pricing procedure of the order under "Item -> Condition -> Analysis".

    Pricing procedure:

    Line with subtotal = 'A':

    Transaction OB45

    Which update group (field "Update") do you use in the relevant credit control area? The

    default setting is "12". If you use another update group, check whether this is fine with

    you. If you open an OSS message, please tell us the alternative update group.

    Credit control area:


    Transaction OMO1

    Which kind of update did you choose for structure S066?

    In any case, "Synchronous update (1)" has to be chosen as the kind of update.

    All other settings will lead to errors.

    With regards
