AFS fuctionality of Mass Document change allows the users to change the values of a number of sales order at once. This document talks about how we can carry out mass change via MDC, and also how to enhance it using custom fields
Multi Store Order in AFS facilitiates the creation of orders which has the requirement of distribution to different stores of the customer instead of a distribution center. The given document has information about how it is implemented in the system.
SAP has announced its new product for Apparel and Footwear Companies
When VAS information is present in TPO and PTO, the same information shall be copied into TPO/PTO Item text as ‘VAS text’. This shall include VAS information for the item and VAS information specific to schedule lines. This VAS text shall flow in follow-on documents – Purchase Requisition and Purchase Order respectively. VAS information shall be present in print output as well as purchase order IDOC
The attached document shows how to maintain VAS in Purchase order for SAP AFS
AFS Material size conversion enables you to display the grid values determined in the system differently. It changes how the grid values are displayed in AFS grids or applications. It is customizable with the following parameters
- User Parameter (J31 is the user parameter)
- Customer / vendor Id
- Material Id
Sales order, Purchase order, Sales Requirement List etc are some applications where conversions are applicable.
In the Customizing step you define the conversion logic for dimension values. This means that you can define different rules regarding when the conversion should take place and how the system should convert each individual dimension value with a specific conversion type.
You can execute the conversion based on one of the following criteria or on a combination thereof:
- User Parameter
- Material (only for item-dependent conversion)
Remember that the conversion is also dependent on the characteristics of the grids and the dimension values.
Customizing in SPRO
Define conversion indicators -> New entries
In this step you must first define the conversion types and then the dimension value conversion.
That means that you create a connection based on a conversion type between the dimension values and the conversion value during the line and grid entries.
-> Define Conversion Indicators
- New Entries
In this step you first define the conversion indicator and then assign the conversion types.
1. Defining the Conversion Indicators
You define the conversion indicators and specify whether each is a material indicator or a customer/vendor indicator.
You do not have to explicitly maintain the user indicator, but rather you can define it in the user parameter J31.
2. Assigning Conversion Types
Define which conversion types can be used depending on the combination of the material, customer/vendor, and user indicators.
Using the sequence number you can define several conversion options for the same combination of indicators and specify an option as the default with the sequence number 0.
The system uses the following sequence during the search:
|Sequence||Material ID||Cust./Vendor ID||User ID|
|Legend: x = exists, – = does not exist|
The combination of indicators with the number 0 is always the default value. The system automatically uses the default conversion types in AFS applications. That means that you have to select non-default conversion types manually in order to see the values with these conversion types.
The dimension value conversion can only use the conversion types that have been assigned for one of the above mentioned combinations of indicators.
Note : We can maintain conversion depending on three factors
- Material Id
- Vendor Id
- Customer Id
Currently Material id is not supported from AFS for 5.0, 6.0 and 6.3 as standard. But we provide modification notes for customers for this functionality. From 6.4 onwards, it is again made as standard.
Assign Conversion Types -> new Entries
(Here we associate the vendor Id and the conversion type)
The conversion Id which is maintained need to be associated with the vendor.
XK02 -> Purchasing organization data
In the purchasing data screen,
Menu -> Environment -> AFS Zusatzdaten
Maintain the vendor Id here.
In change mode, click on “Conversion “
- New Entries
Maintain the conversion values for the characteristic values
Create a grid. In J3ah , the conversion should be ticked.
Material SL_MATERIAL created.
Create purchase order with vendor KK_VENDOR
The conversion SK_CONV is picked by default.
from the conversion button.
Maintaining Material Conversion using Customer ID
For maintaining Customer ID, the conversion indicator should be of type Customer and the id need to be maintained at customer master
XD02 -> AFS Additional data
Maintaining Material Conversion using Material Id
Material id is maintained in Material master
Maintaining Material Conversion using User ID.
4) Maintain Conversion Type
6) Maintain data as follows:
7) CT04 -> kk_size -> Conversion
