In Part 1 of this series, I provided a basic definition for backorders, highlighted some standard tools in ECC to report on backorders, and recommended some high-level approaches to resolving backorder problems. In this article, I address one of the main tools for automating the process of re-balancing material confirmations: V_V2.
Within the Logistics Execution module, there are few functions as important as Delivery Creation. After all, you can’t bill for what you don’t ship. Even within S/4 Hana, the VL10 transactions seem to offer the best, most flexible way to create deliveries. But what if you need to adjust the way SAP selects delivery scope in these transactions? Read on to see how I used a simple custom routine to filter out certain deliveries from the list.
I’ve previously attempted to demystify SAP Sales Order dates, but this topic seems to arise time and time again. I decided to put the Sales Order / Logistics scheduling dates on a handy timeline to help explain the mechanics of SAP Logistics Scheduling. Read on.
Things have been quite busy for me as of late leaving me very little time for posting new content on this blog. Lately, though, I had the opportunity to write a blog post for my employer, itelligence, and I thought I would share that link with you here (itelligencegroup.com). You are more than welcome to request access to the accompanying webinar recording (at the bottom of the linked page), but keep in mind the applicants may be screened beforehand. Enjoy.
I’ve been playing a bit of catch up this week. I’ve got a rather large backlog of articles to publish. Today, I’m starting with some new content in my SAP SD Reference Guide series:
Like many, I try to keep my Resume as fresh as possible. Even if you’re not actively job-hunting, updating your resume regularly will ensure that you’re capturing the more salient activities you’re performing and perhaps replacing those that are less important. But in the age of the cloud where LinkedIn reigns supreme, is it time to re-think the classic interpretation of the professional Resume?

I’m configuring a series of % discounts in SD. Each needs to apply a % to the price, not to the value (SAP default), so the price per unit decreases with each discount. The result is a slightly different final total value from the standard method. I can’t find a way in standard config, all I can do is a standard value: can you suggest anything? Do I need a custom requirement?
One of the best weapons in a support consultant’s arsenal is the ability to review document changes. Sometimes, being able to build a precise timeline around occurrences of an issue can be crucial to finding a solution. Let’s discuss more about the structure and use of change records in Sales and Distribution.
User Exits… Depending on your perspective, they are either a saving grace which allows you to bend SAP to your liking, or a frightening Carte Blanche which allows your clients to do the most crazy stuff (and later ask you to fix it). Either way, they are a critical tool for an SAP consultant. Their number is legion and here is how to find them. …all of them.
I’m often impressed by how some consultants can rattle off transaction codes for IMG configuration activities. Want to create a new SD Item Category? Sure, just go to VoV7… I usually choose to navigate using the IMG’s navigation tree (SPRo) but every so often it is handy to be able to directly access an IMG T-code. Here’s a little trick I discovered for finding some of those shortcuts.
