How To Maintain Output Types in SD


When I am creating a bill and saving it and then giving issue output to and then header preview, the system does not respond.  Should I maintain condition records?  Where and how to maintain?

For getting any output either by print, Fax, or any media you have to do output determination. output determination is also carried by Condition techniques. The detail procedure for Output Determination is :

OutPut Determintaion :

Output is a form of media from your business to one of its business partners or it can be within the organization. The output can be sent to any of the partners defined in the document. Outputs are usually in the form of Order Confirmations, Freight List, Delivery Notes, Invoices & Shipping Notifications. Determining form of output is output determination.

Types of Output:

Print Output, Fax, Telex, E-Mail & EDI (Electronic Data Interchange)


Configuration path: ( following are the steps)

1) SPRO-> IMG-> Basic Functions-> Output Control-> Output Determination-> Output Determination using Condition Technique- >Output Determination for Sales Documents (or you can use output determination for billing documents depending on your requirement).

2) Create Condition Table: select the field Sales Doc Type from field catalog & Save

3) Maintain Access Sequence: 4-digits code & description.

4) Assign condition table to access sequence. Select Accesses line item and Go To Fields. Fields will display the fields we have selected in the condition table i.e. sales doc type.

Maintain Output Types:

AF00: Inquiry

Assign Output Types to Partner Functions: go to new entries & assign your output type to partner functions.

Maintain Output Determination Procedure: V10000 (Standard Procedure). Go to new entries and create your own 6-digit code with description. Select the procedure, go to Control Data. Here mention the output type i.e. condition type and leave requirement and manual only columns as blank.

Determination Rule: link the 6-digit procedure code to doc types.

Create Condition Records: VV11. Select document type and click on Communication. Mention partner function, medium, time. Output device: LP01, Spool request Name: SD_003, Suffix 2: order_confir & flag on print immediately.

It contains: Sales Orgnisation, Customer, Partner Function (The abbreviated form of the name that identifies the Partner) (During output determination, the system determines the recipient of the output from the master record for the specified partner function. In this field, you can explicitly specify a recipient that will override the standard partner. There must also be a master record for the partner that is specified explicitly.), Medium, Time & Language.}

Order Type: Document Type, Partner Function (abbreviation), Partner, Medium, Time & Language.
