Customer Complaints Processing.


I am trying to do cusotmer complaints processing. For this I have defined the Reasons for complaints with the abbrivation RETN for the sales document type RE (Return) and given a tick mark for the changeable and check qty. and the followup document for the return is Subsequent free of charge delivery (SDF) document type.

I hope what I did is enough, or is there any other thing to do to address customer complaint process flow ?

I have created a sales order for the qty-3.for a material M1

then there was a Return of qty-1 of material M1

I have also done the PGR and VF01 and got the credit memo.

Now when I try to do CMP_PROCESSING, I am getting the error message as:

"There is a return that has not been processed for item 000000

Message no. VCMP012"

What exactly I am missing and where ? Could any one have any suggestions please.

    Complaints processing in TCode CMP_PROCESSING takes place based on the customer's billing doc or delivery doc which gives rise to the complaint. Not on the bases of return order or delivery.

    This is the reason you are faceing error VCMP 012. As already error suggest

    System Response

    You cannot create a complaint for an item about which there has already been a complaint.


    Wait until returns processing has been completed.

    Thus, kindly provide referenced billing doc or delivery doc, which is used to create Return order.

    • In Doc. Number provide billing doc for the order you want to make return or you receive complaint from customer.

      And press Enter.

      This will populate Items from Billing doc into Item Section of Complaint Processing screen.

      At the bottom of the screen, provide

      - Item

      - Complaints Reason

      - Qty

      - Material

      you desired to process for the complaint.

      You can reference

      Use Next Page button to input more than one item.

      Do a check (F6), before saving the transaction.

    HI Jyoti Prakash,

    You are explanation is good, to understand more clearly, can you explain to us the process steps on claim processing, looks like one step is missing in your explanation which is a key point to explore.

    My example is: the CMP_PROCESSING table entries are as below. OR-F2 and RE-G2

    0001 --- OR----F2---TANXX--RE---G2---XX---QUANTITY DISCREPENCY

    As per your above explanation, I have created order and delivery and invoice, with reference to that invoice I am processing the complaints. means : OR--> LF--> F2 --> ?

    What is the use of CMP_PROCESSING ? it will create the credit memo in the background. or some other document.

    I tried that, I am getting below error, can you have a look and explain the process.

    That would be great help...
