VMI intercompany Sales Order


I have question about VMI processing happening and APO and then going to R/3.

Standard VMI Process: VMI Customer planning shows receipt as distibution receipt planned and supplying plant as distribution demand planned. When this Distribution demand planned data is sent to R/3 with TLB, it becomes VMI Sales order of type "TAV". When it comes back to APO, it stays at "Distribution Demand ( TLB Confirmed ) at source plant.

Our Process : We send this materials to international VMI Location which is like intercomapny Sales Order. So the with config inbound to R/3, we change sales order type when it arrives in r/3. when this Sales Order goes back to APO, it shows up on Sales Order Line in SDP94 in APO . I want it to show up as "distribution demand TLB Confirmed" like normal VMI Process.

Is there any place where I can influence this config ?.

I tried changing in APOCF10 SMOD Project but Somewhere SAP's standard logic overwrites it.

    Hi James,

    One method for this would be to change the ATP category of these special sales orders when they flow into APO from BM to something like ZS and then add this ZS category to the category group for Distribution demand Key figure in your SNP planning area.

    You can use the exit "EXIT_/SAPAPO/SAPLCIF_SLS_001" in APO. This exit is called when sales orders flow from R/3 to APO. You can change the ATP category in this exit. But please ensure this custom ATP category is defined in APO configuration prior to the exit implementation.

    Hope this helps.

    If you adopt any other method for this requirement, please do share with us...
