    Hi

    It determines from the entries maintained in the table V_T184. The combination of sales order type, item category group from material master, usage will determine the default item category to be populated in the enquiry or sales order. This is a customizing table. If you see the table entries you will see:

    For enquiry: Sales order type IN, material item cateogry: NORM, usage blank, the default item category must be AFN

    For sales order: Sales order type OR, material item category: NORM, usage blank, the default item category must be TAN

    This is how sales order default item categories are determined.

    Hi

    That is not advisable. Since item category AFN is only related to enquiry no billing or delivery relevance is set up for it in the definition of item category. Also in this case credit check is not active, item partners are not active for AFN. So TAN is set up as the item category which has all these settings. It is not possible to have one item category in both the enquiry and the order in the standard settings.

    Thanks

      We have set one the Item category TAN for Sales Doc type OR-standard order for Item group NORM.

      Another we have set again second item category ZTAN (our customized category) for Sales Doc type OR-standard order for Item group NORM.

    Hi Harpret

    You can make your customised item category ZTAN as the default item category in

    SPRO Sales and Distribution -Sales Sales Document Sales Document Item---Assign Item Categories

    Your entry should be for sales order type OR, Material item cateogry as NORM, Usage as blank, Higher level item category as blank, Default item category is ZTAN. Then when you create an order of OR type for all NORM material the ZTAN item category would be chosen.

    Hi Harpreet

    Why would you want to define two item categories as default? The default item category would be automatically fetched. In case you define two item categories as default system would not be able to determine any as default. Plus system would not be able to save this entry as your key for this entry is the same. So if you want to use both these item categories then you can make one as default and the other as a Manual entry allowed item category. So the entry in customizing would be like:

    Sales Doc type: OR

    Mat Item Category: NORM

    Usage: blank

    Higher level item category: blank

    Default item catgory: ZTAN

    Manual item catgory: TAN

    In this case default which would be populated is ZTAN, but users can also select TAN manually. This would make sense if you have made some changes in the way ZTAN would behave as compared to TAN.

    Hello Harpreet,

    How Item Category is determine in sales doccument.

    As per standard SAP, the item category determination take place as per the following business rules:

    1. Sales Order Type (OR) + Item Category Group (NORM) + Usage + Higher Item Cat = Default, Manual

    2.Same For OR-Standard Order doc type We have define 
    two item category AFN & TAN in customize for NORM Group.
    When We add theSales order form then how system determine 
    which (AFN Or TAN) item category will display in sales order doccument

    After setting up the following values, please ensure to do the setting for item category in t-code VOV4.

    1. Define a Item category

    2. Define Item Category Group

    3. Define default value of item category group for Material Type and assignment of Item cat group in Material master record.

    4. Define item Usage

    5. Assign Item category in vov4.

    3.When we save inquiry sales doccument then item category was AFN. 
    When We make the sales order with reference of Inquiry with help of copy control 
    then in sales order item category was TAN. How system determine this.Copy control 
    derter mine the item category when we make any sale doccument with reference?

    Please note that the Sales Document type plays an important role in determination of item Category.

    Regards,

    Sarthak
