Sales order item category per sales organization

Hi

Sorry for the question, I am FI/CO expert, and since our SD expert left us, I am also the SD expert now.

Can I define different item categories for the same sales order type for different sales orgs?

VOV4 (IMG-sales and distrebution-sales-sales documents-sales document item-assign item categories) has no sales organization parameter.

Thanks

Ofer

    Yes, you can define different item categories (in t.code VOV7) and assign to same sales order types. The item category is determined by based on Sales document type + Item category group (from material master) + Item category usage + High level item category (check t.code VOV4).

    The item categories are not assigned to sales organization, but the sales document types are assigned to sales area. Check t.code VOV8, where the sales documents are defined and in t.code OVAZ, the sales documents are assigned to sales area (sales area = sales org + distribution channel + division).

    YOu can see the steps of configuration at SPRO -> Sales and distribtution ->Sales document header (related to sales document type) and then at -> Sales document item.

    Regards

    Hi Ofer,

    You cannot have different item cat if the doc type is same though the sales org is changing.

    This is similar to asking selling the same material across diff sales org's but with diff item cat's. If this is still a requirement, you can think of having a diff doctype since the sales org is chaging. Remember we go for a diff sales org when the business strategy is changed to sell a companies product. In such case it makes sense to represent that with a diff doc type - which will allow you to have a diff item cat making more sense to meet your requirement.
