Cross Selling and Sales BOMs as results


We are expanding our use of Cross Selling. One of the requests is that cross selling return a list that includes items that are setup as Sales BOMs.

For example:

Cross selling is setup for:

Sales Org/DC/Division/Material


Alternate Materials



CCC - CCC has a BOM with usage 5 and when entered on an order normally, it expands to items CCA and CCB.

Create an order and enter material ABC

Cross Selling shows with the three options above.

Add a qty of 1 for material CCC and copy it to the order

Item CCC is copied to the order, with the correct item category but does not then have the subitems of CCA and CCB.

Is there a way to make the item added via cross selling explode the sales bom, or will this not work? I know that BOM items cannot initiate cross selling, but wasn't aware it didn't work if it was a result of cross selling. Thank you.

    Is the item category determination happening properly for the BOM item in the sales order? Did you check the structure scope values in T.code VOV7 for the BOM item category? Check whether OSS Note 1271762 - Cross selling: Item category determination contains errors is of any use to your case.

      Thank you for the response.

      The item category is configured correctly, as the BOM does explode on the order correctly when entered manually, it only fails to add the sub-components when added as a result of the cross selling. The note you specified is not applicable to our system, we are currently on 4.7 and not upgrading to ECC6 until this summer.
