Problems with CMIR with Rush Order

We have a situation where we cannot enter CMIR with Rush Orders. The system is giving a message:

No item category available (Table T184 SO TEXT )

Message no. V1320

It works fine with the standard order type. I checked the item category determination config for the standard order and copied the following entries from OR to the SO order type in the item category assignment:

SO TEXT TATX

SO TEXT TAN TATX

SO TEXT TANN TATX

SO TEXT TAP TATX

When I create a SO order and enter the CMIR it only determines item category TATX and does not bring back the SAP material from the CMIR record which I have maintained for that customer. I do not understand why CMIR works fine with an OR order but not the SO order type.

Can someone please help me with this? What am I missing in config?

Thanks,

SJ

    Hi,

    Please check if "Read Info Record" filed is checked in rush order document type (SO) or not in configuration of document type (Tcode VOV8). If not, then, you need to change the config and tick that. Then try your scenario. It should work.

    Hope this helps

      Thanks Mukund. The Read Info Record flag on the SO order type was not checked which is why the SO order was nor reading the CMIR.

    HI

    Item Category will be determined by the following..

    Sales Doc Type + Item Category Group + Item Usage + Item category of Higher level Item.

    In your case,

    You need to maintain the setting as,

    OR(Sales Doc Type)""TEXT+TAN = TATX

    If the Higher line item has the item category as 'TAN' - then item category will be determined for the new item as 'TATX'.

    I am not sure - which Item category group do we need to assign to the material in Sales Org1. view.

    If you have assigned any item category group to a material, then you do need to enter that item category group as mentioned above in the transaction VOV4.

    Dear SJ,

    You can re-check the Master Data & item Category determination.

    - Check is there any Item Usage maintained in CMIR? which is one of the key field to determine item category.

    - Second, As already expressed by friend in abvoe reply, check Item category maintained in MMR

    Now,

    in VOV4, is there any record exist with the above mentoned combination?

    Test & update the forum.

    Regards,

    Thanks for your response Balaji. I do have that config maintained in the system. I do not want TATX item category to default on the line item when I enter a customer material in te CMIR field on the sales order. I want the rush order to behave teh same way as the standard order when I enter the CMIR.

    The surprising thing is that if I enter the CMIR on a standard OR order and then switch the order type to SO it works fine. Any clues why this would happen?

    hi,

    normally for order type OR in VOV8, read info record is automatlcally checked.

    check for SO or RO and get back to me if not checked.
