    Hi Venu,

    I believe , first link given by Ramesh will be helpful to you.

    In Addition to that let me Give you some examples as well which you are looking for.

    1 . Order Required : it tells that has no reference document to an existing sales order is allowed

    ex sales order required

    no proceeding documents required

    Use :

    You can have below business requirements where,

    If you are using normal Sales Order cycle, Sales Order will be your input.

    You will select Option 1. Sales Order required.

    you want to Make Delivery Order without any Precedent Document.

    You will select Option 2. No reference document required.

    Based on this setting system will decide which specific Reference it should look for at the time of input of Delivery.

    2. Default order type:it tells when you create sales order don't refer to existing orders we must provide some of the control criteria normally copied from header document into the delivery document

    Business requirement,

    Example : STO Processing with Outbound Delivery Processing.

    • For this process, your system needs to determine Movement Type at the time of Delivery creation.
    • We do not provide any movement type in STO Creation or manually at the time of Delivery creation.
    • W/O movement type we can not create Delivery.
    • So system refers the Field " Default Order Type", checks the Item Category determination for the same.
    • Based on Item Category checks Schedule line category determination and Picks up Schedule line.
    • From this schedule line it will Pick up Movement Type as well as other controls.

    This logic is applicable for other fields determinations also.

    Default Order type become activates only if you are not referring Sales Order as an Input.

    Hope this requirements are clarifying your doubts and answers your question.

    Regards,

    Mahendra Jani.

    Hi Venu,

    In OVLK there are two things given

    1. Required Sales order: for Example in IDES you have two delivery types one is LF another is LO

    for Delivery types LF you required reference of sales order where as for LO you need of sales order reference without referencing the sales order you can create DN.

    2. Default sales order: in default Sales order field you have to specify particular sales document type for automatic selection of sales order for the creation of delivery.

    Regards,

    • The best way to learn about these questions is to read the theory.

      Glynn C Williams in Implementing SAP ERP Sales and Distribution has explained this, in section Defining Delivery Types, in chapter Logistics Execution Process.

      I would explain one point, to clear your question:

      Order reference: No preceding document required

      A flow (OTC e.g. sales order > delivery > billing) "KNOWS" the billing type from the sales document type (e.g. wether billing type is F2 or ZF1 or.........)

      WithOUT sales document type

      (e.g. Delivery > Billing)

      how does system know what is the billing type?

      That is why a "dummy sales document type" is given in field Default order type in 0vlk (ZEROvlk)

      and not OVLK (not oooo VLK)

      To know the billing type.

      Thus the process Delivery > Billing

      is actually Dummy sales order > Delivery > Billing*

      PS: the above flow* is to explain the concept

    Hi Venu,\

    have you check Mahendra Jani solution before closing the discussion, don`t close the thread with just read, try to test once and close.

    Dear Mahendra Jani,

    I have checked your solution for Default order type. as you said without Default order type (DL), movement type is not determined in delivery .(without order reference LO)

    But i removed Default order type(DL) in my delivery type without reference to order (LO) and create the delivery .

    so delivery is created and item category , movement type are also determined without any Default order type. so there is no link between Default order type and determining movement type and item cat ,

    In my research i found that item cat will be determined in delivery without reference as per determinations in Tcode 0184, here we assign delivery w/o reference type (LO) to item cat DLN.

    with the help of assignment the item cat will be determine in delivery document (LO)

    schedule line category is determined in V0V5 assignment( DLN PD CN), so movement type(601) will be determined automatically.

    i am also looking for the exact use of Default order type, so please any one explain me what is the exact use.

    Thank you,

    Viswa.

    • Ravi,

      If LO delivery type has delivery item category DLN maintained in 0184.

      Then from delivery item category DLN system shall search sales item category DLN

      That is what I meant by:

      2. From delivery item category (DLN) > the sales item category (DLN) is known

      If DLN is deleted in VOV7, then while create the delivery with delivery type LO.

      The following error message shall populate and delivery can NOT be created.

      Item category DLN is not defined

      Message no. VL324

      Please test this scenario and if required, please ask / comment.

      Added by TW:

      When I add / insert sales item category DLN back in VOV7

      In VL01N, create a delivery without reference (LO delivery type), I can create a delivery. (I get NO error message)

    Venu,

    I have tested this "functionality / delivery type / issue in this thread".

    Please do read my post.

    If you have any questions, please ask.

    For maximum benefit from this thread, do extensive tests with various scenarios by creating a copy of LO (e.g. Z1LO)

    In real life consultants work on issues for days ...even weeks, that gives a clear and lasting impressions of concepts.

    Take this thread and test it for couple of days.

    You shall get value in return of your effort.
