Sales documents .

Here is my question. We have an application that take files from the application server

and create sales orders, outbound delivery with order reference and finally a billing document.

What we have done so far is the sales ordes - we used the function - sd_salesdocument_create.

What is the best solution further ?

We can use a call transaction with VL06G and VF04. Is this the best method ? Are there any function

modules that can help to process a document in the sequence of order, delivery, billing, or we

remain with the solution of creating the sales orders one by one and then use the two transaction

for a all of them to create the rest of the document-flux ?

    Hi Ivanov,

    To answer, your question, unfortunately if you want to see the sales order / delivery / invoice document flow in your R/3 system then you will need to call each of these components individually.

    You have the sales order sorted, so lets not cover that (although why you didn't use the BAPI is a puzzle).

    To create the delivery you are a little stuck. There seems to be no BAPIs or Idocs (or any useful function modules) to achieve this. I think BDC is probably the way to go.

    To create the invoice you have the BAPI BAPI_BILLINGDOC_CREATE. This should do the job nicely.

    The only question is really time. All these transactions will take a long time to execute, so you will need to design your process well, to make sure that your system doesn't get overloaded, but also so that updates occur in a timely fashion.

    Hope that helps.
