a question on vkm1 & vkm3

hi all,

We're building a z program to automate the process of VKM1 and VKM3. (by sold-to party, order type,

For VKM1 we retrieve the open sales order with block and release it by using SD_ORDER_CREDIT_RELEASE. This part is fine.

For VKM1, the process is tedious. We have to get all the open sales order , get the customer credit control data, check the schedule line block status, calculate the credit limit via s067. And finally use the SD_ORDER_CREDIT_RECHECK to do the recheck. We're almost there for this part (waiting to confirm how to read the block configuration master table).

However we're thinking SAP should have some tool for us to do the same thing.

The reason of to have this automation process is to always refresh the system and update the latest credit limit (what we see in FD33).

Please kindly advise do we already have any built-in tool or report for this purpose.

Thank You.

    I think SAP did not developed something similar because the credit order release usually involve some business checks: if the order has been blocked it means that the customer exceeded his credit limit, so someone have to understand if the customer is liable of this extra credit or not.

    Also remember that there are some atndard reports to run or schedule to keep the credit up-to-date:

    RVKRED08 (Credit check on sales orders that reach the credit horizon), RVKRED06 (New credit check for blocked SD documents) and RVKRED88 (SD: Simulation: Reorganization of SD credit data after updating errors).

    RVKRED08 should be scheduled to run every day after backorder processing.

    u2022 F.33 - Brief overview. Similar to the previous transaction code but without access to the external data, and formulated to be printed as a report.

    u2022 F.32 Missing data.
