Re: Partial IV by value only

I can answer my own question again. For those interested: OSS notes 459509 and 639523 describe the mechanics of purchasing commitments - unlike SAP standard documentation. There is a standard option to have commitments reduced by value (and not quantity) by units of measurement - transaction CUNI. I...

Re: Partial IV by value only

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately both of your suggestions lead to the same old problem with the commitments disappearing as soon as a partial invoice on one schedule line has been posted. It seems like there is no lean and mean solution except the one I mentioned in my original post. Please, som...

Partial IV by value only

Hello, Although this question has been asked several times I would very much appreciate a definite reply to be presented to a client as a base for argumentation. The scenario is the following: * Client orders "miscellaneous services" for a total flat value of for e.g. USD 10,000. Details (hourly rat...

Re: Amount column missing in VA01

Thanks for clearing this up. So in other words, it's unusable in a user-friendly manner. Bravo SAP! What do you reckon the complications are for a hard modification? I mean, all it would take is to add KOMV-KBETR in the sequence GA. I would suspect all it takes is an entry in some protected system t...

Re: Amount column missing in VA01

Hi Frank, No, it's not even in the table controls. In the meantime I figured out that there is a parametre in customising in the sales order type header which controls the screen layout to some extent. I don't have a system available right now so I don't recall the exact name of the field. When it's...

Amount column missing in VA01

Hi SD friends, I bumped into this for the first time ever since I work in SD. The amount field (KOMV-KBETR) is missing on the item overview in this installation (ECC 6.0). It's not at all in the list where you can mask certain columns via the Administrator function. In all other systems I've seen so...

Re: Exclude materials from MRP according to a date

Thanks. My instinct hasn't abandoned me ;) What struck me as strange is that I heard there is a number of "experts" who strongly deny that automatic MRP exclusion by date exists in SAP standard. They state that their clients have no other choice than to exclude the materials manually by setting them...

Exclude materials from MRP according to a date

Hello MM gurus, I'm looking for a simple solution to automatically prevent certain materials from being replenished by the MRP run from a certain date on. It's sort of an "end of series" scenario. I'm not sure if this can be achieved by simply using the material status and its date which would be id...

... it would be interesting to know if SAP has any plans to drop this piece of fossilised limitation. I encounter more and more clients who have to either develop awkward workarounds in SD, ie. delivery and invoice splits which are understandably not appreciated by their customers or FI item summari...

Re: Countries without VAT - PO yet requires tax procedure

It appeared to me that SAP has ''hard-coded'' the tax code validation in MIRO Transaction. Anyhow, I will check it further and get back to you if there is any progress. Cheers, HT Cheers for that. I suppose that's where the circle closes. I haven't been able to post in IV without tax code. Strange ...

Re: Countries without VAT - PO yet requires tax procedure

Thanks for the reply. What you suggest is exactly the conflict I initially had. Country HK comes with no tax procedure assigned in standard setting but then I get error FF703 in the PO --> see my first post. It's like a vicious circle I'm in here. I couldn't find anything in OSS about FF703. There m...

Re: Countries without VAT - PO yet requires tax procedure

As I mentioned, I wanted to avoid zero tax. In fact I don't want any tax functionality at all, especially in invoice verification. I would be very surprised if this is not possible in MM. I know that it can be configured in SD in a way that the FI document of the sales invoice doesn't contain any ta...

Countries without VAT - PO yet requires tax procedure

Hello, I'm in the middle of configuring a company in Hong Kong which, as far as the specs state, does not have any VAT or other taxes on purchases and sales. Thus SAP standard does not provide any tax calculation procedures for those countries. I'm on ECC6. The problem is that I get an error when cr...

Re: Billing document without sales order

It used to be still possible in R/2. In R/3 (vanilla at least) you're out of luck. From what I've heard it is possible in Business One. The actual question is where is the problem to create sales orders and then run VF04 as many times a day as they need invoices to be issued? In past projects we hav...
