Texts in Sale oder

Ok here goes! I have sale order created at one Business Unit and which inturns creates anothe sale Order at other Business Unit Via an IDOC.

My Order Catergory is Standard . So it not copying header texts to other Busniess Units Sale order.

Ex: BU1 - creates a SO1 ( with texts in header)

ORDER - Idoc carries into to BU2 , posts the data.

BU2 - SO2 (does not have the text information )

I understand it is coz , Catergory type is Standard type, How ever it works fine in case of Thrid party Orders.

Is there any way work around to get the text data posted ? Apart from modifying IDOC explicitly?

    Hi Manohar,

    When you are creating one sales order with reference to another sales order, the config behind the scenes controls what needs to get copied and what not. This is under "Copy Control" of the config by document type. So in your case, the "Third Party" document copy control might be allowing copying of the text while the document type "Standard" might not be. Check with your functional consultant.

    Even if your order is in one SAP system and then is transferred to another SAP system using ALE via an IDOC, the IDOC does have the text segments in it. So you don't have to really modify the IDOC definition either.

    If you could explain little bit more about your requirement and some simple example may be someone can help.

    • Hi Manohar,

      So yours is a ALE scenario where a sales order is created in one system and then the sales order is transmitted to another by means of an IDOC.

      If you look at the FM IDOC_OUTPUT_ORDERS, you will see that in the PERFORM DETERMINE_IDOC_VIEW, the system is trying to set what segments needs to be sent to the receiving partner. Then based on the view, systems determines whether to include the texts or not in PERFORM SEGMENTS_TO_READ_SET.

      In debugging, check if these segments are getting included or excluded. If they are getting excluded, then I think you issue may be related to EDI partner profile.

      Let me know how it goes.
