Bapi sales order - create items for BOm and non

Post by 7cows » Sun Sep 25, 2011 11:28 am

Hi

We have want to use a sales order bapi to create a sales order with BOM materials (which explode automatically) and non BOM materials. Does anyone have experience with this.

Do SAP standard BAPIs know automatically which line item number to create next since certain BOM materials may explode to many line items while creating the sales order.

Please share your experience

Thanks

The BAPI is just a wrapper that sends your data to ( essentially ) the standard processing programs in SAP. So how the BOM is treated will depend on the SD customising for the order type you specify. The item numbering is set by order type. I suggest you test it and see what happens!
There are also OSS notes describing limitations of the BAPIs.
Good luck!
