Eursap’s Tip of the Week: Sales Order Restriction Tables – A Useful Way To Filter

Eursap’s Tip of the Week: Sales Order Restriction Tables 

In SAP ERP 6.0, a common complaint was that any order reason and any rejection reason could be used for any sales order type.

For example, there would be nothing to stop you using an order reason such as “Incorrect prices – credit” on a standard sales order type, rather than a credit memo request.

SAP responded to this complaint by introducing a table that can restrict the use of order reasons as well as rejection reasons in later versions of SAP ERP 6.0 and then SAP S/4HANA. The use of order reasons can now be restricted based on the sales order type and sales organisation.

These restrictions are set up by the IT team in the Customizing table TVAU_AUART_VKO, via the IMG path below.

The table then looks as below.

A similar table can be used to restrict the use of the rejection reasons according to sales order type and sales organisation. IMG path and table view below.

Once entries are set up in these tables, then only order reasons and rejection reasons assigned to the sales document types and sales organisations can be used in sales order processing.

I hope you find this useful. Stay tuned for another SAP Tip from Eursap next week!
