Credit Limit Issue for new customers

Dear Experts,

Iam ABAPer and recently shited to SD.

I have a issue with credit limit check for new customers.

For example, Credit control team set Rs1000 limit for new customer.

Core team created Sales Order with Rs 3000 and they created subsequent documents successfully like Delivery and Invoice.

System not performing any credit checks before making Delivery note means not showing in VKM1 tcode.

After creating first invoice for the new customer and system is checking credit limit for all the Sales orders whcih were created after first invoice (Billing).

Can you please help me how to overcome this issue.

Note: Credit Control Team dont want to use VKM3 tcode to release the order.

      Hi ,

      You have to do the procedure as friends told earlier and depend up on credit block only it will work . Whether it has to block in sales doc , delivery and PGI check it first and also don;t forget to maintain TOTAL in pricing procedure you are using with SUBTOTAL "A" and CALCULATION TYPE as " 4 " . I am sure u will get.

      Thank you ,

    Check these things

    1. In OVA8 Maintain reaction as B = Error message

    2. In OVAK check if Ceck Credit = D and credit group is 01 for the relevant sales order type is assigned or not.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Basha,

    Firrst check if credit is evaluated for your order. Follow the below steps in understanding the credit check done for the order you created.

    Use the program "CHECK_CM" in SE38 transaction. On executing this program, you will be faced with analysis of SD document with regard to credit management screen appears.

    Enter the order number in the sales document field and in the "settings" box check both the check boxes and execute the transaction.

    You will be now faced with the credit check analysis done for your order.

    Make a note of Credit control area, risk category and credit group

    Also check which type of automatic credit check system is doing (Static/ dynamic/......) and also check the reaction. Based on this you can conclude if credit check is working for your order. If no check is happening then you have to re-look into config changes of credit management

    Hope this explains.
