When is a Sales Order considered closed on the system

Hi,

At which point does the system consider the Sale orders are closed:

1. When the delivery document is created?

2. When the billing document is created?

3. When the customer's account uis posted to the Account Receivables?

If you were to check for open or closed Sales Orders, would you check the line item status or any of the specified 'When' stated?

Is this SAP standard configuration or it depends on the SAP clients' requirements?

Thanks

    Hi,

    SAP considers the status of line items to ensure whether the Sales order has been referred completely.

    If any of the line items are still open then the sales order status will be "Open".

    If any line items are pending which are not intended to deliver then if you want to close the sales order then ideally two actions could be done on the paricular sales order. I.e putting a rejection status on the line item and another deleting the sales order line item.

    If it is not done then IN MRP the requirements the following line item quantity will be shown and the Item will be unnecessarily blocked.

    If there are such open sales order then through mass transaction we put rejection status for the line item.

    In SAP<,A sale s order considered to be closed when you create the delivery for all the quantities mentioned in the sales order line items. ( but you can always increase the quantity in the sales order so that the sales order will become open with increased quantity)

    Hope this helps

    Dear Yosemite Sam,

    At which point does the system consider the Sale orders are closed:

    sales order is considered to be closed, when the total order qty is completely referenced

    i.e,completely delivered if there is delivery

    or

    completely invoiced if its a service order

    If you were to check for open or closed Sales Orders, would you check the line item status or any of the specified 'When' stated?

    if a line item is completely referenced, it does not mean that the order is completed.

    The sales order is complete, if all the line items are completely referenced.

    Hence you may take the header status for completion.

    TABLE : VBUK

    Is this SAP standard configuration or it depends on the SAP clients' requirements?

    It is SAP Standard.

    NOTE:There will be threads on this, hence please search the forum before posting your queries.

    Thanks & Regards,
