SAP Global Trade Management – Trading Contract

Well, first thing you need to learn about GTM is Trading Contract (T/C), a GTM document.

When we decided to develop GTM, we needed a logistics document because trading business is simply you buy something and sell it to someone else. Obviously you need a sales order for customer and a purchase order for a vendor/supplier side.

So neither SAP sales order (S/O) nor SAP purchase order (P/O) are enough to fulfill trading business process as a starting point.

We need a document which has a capability to store sales and purchase data both and create a S/O and a P/O as subsequent documents, yes, that is T/C.

T/C as a nature can creates a S/O and several P/Os at item level and automatically in background with ONE Click.

Don’t you think this is cool?

Not only document creation but also you have an online profit simulation, open order/delivery control and so on. Since T/C has sales and purchase both side data into one document, you don’t have to go to S/O and P/O back and forth to check business data, you can check everything at ONE document.

Trading Contract (T/C)

And this T/C has a nice document flow functionality not like S/Os and P/Os one, visually every single following documents are shows up under T/C as tree hierarchy, no matter what SAP module or transaction, EVERY documents you can see and jump to by a double click, COOL!!

Now you want to learn more about GTM, right?

I will explain Trading Execution Workbentch (TEW) next.

Cheers!

    Hi Nob,

    We are working within IS-Retail ECC6 environment.

    We have a solution using the SAP Standard 3rd Party processing, with many user exits.

    Global Trade Contracts seems to do is all from one place (no user exits) which is great.

    MM: using ZTM001 – copy of GTM001 with manual conditions (discounts). The net/net price is passed to the sales price.
    SD: using GTS001
    GMPP is flagged a rel to pricing
    GMPP is in both pricing proceedures.

    If I set pricing in the contract type to “Using sales pricing” then in GTC MM pricing (manual conditions) not open. If pricing set to “Using standard” then SD prices not found. In both cases price proposal is set to “Price proposed by system”.

    What should the correct settings be in the Contract type, use standard or sales and price proposal?

    Thanks and regards,

    Ezra

      Hi Ezra,

      Under GTM@ECC6.0 environment, you have two options for Trading Contract pricing.
      1. Retail pricing (this does not require Retail switch, pricing works under the rule of retail business, total purchase price is automatically transferred to sales side as a base sales price)

      2. Standard pricing (like SD/MM pricing and both pricing are not connected, each pricing processed separately)

      Even if you are using IS-Retail system, you have the options to choose. This is something I need to know.

      Next, you understood the above and now decided to use Retail pricing, there are a lots of work because sales and purchase pricing need to be connected.

      My recommendation for you is as follows;
      1. Set up a Trading Contract type working with GTM001 (purchasing) and GTS001 (sales)

      If does work, you can create/customize yours copying with references.
      If does NOT work, you never can’t go next step because you still have error(s) in your configuration.

      Please go to GTM IMG (Tr-cd: WB2B_CUS) and execute the customise items from ‘Purchasing’ to ‘Retail’.

      Lastly if you choose ‘Price proposed by system’ in T/C type customize, you need to maintain sales (VK11) or purchase price (MEK1), otherwise system can’t find the rigit price for the item you entered in T/C.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks, Nob

        Hi Nob,

        Thanks very much for your reply.

        To clarify, our senario is back-to-back business and therefore the sales price is based on the purchase price. So, (1) applies.

        T/C config on MM is set to read info record, so this is where PB00 price is derived. To this extent, “Price proposed by system” is also set on the T/C.

        2 things happen:

        1) If I set config on T/C to use “standard pricing” then on T/C purchasing conditions all works. PB00 derived from Info Rec. and the Net/Net price is calculated. Problem: No price transfer to Sales conditions.

        2) If config set to use “sales price”, sales price is transferred, but purchasing conditions closed (cannot enter additional conditions) to derive net/net.

        The goal is to have purchasing conditions less manual conditions => calulated net/net => sales price.

        If tested as is using txn: VKP5 this works and sales price derived as EKNN -> and once saved VKP0.

        Question: 1) I did not understand where you were reffering to execute the customise items from “Purchasing” to “Retail”? 2) I am using GTM001 & GTS001 and have the same problem. Therefore, there is a error in my config. Please can you suggest what I should possibly look for?

        Thanks for all the help.

          Hi Erza,

          Sorry for my delayed res.

          Okay, if you would like to use retail pricing, you need to choose ‘Using Sales Pricing’ in the customized field of T/C type.

          I think another customized field, Price Proposal is not important bacause this field is added after we adopted standard pricing (SD/MM).
          So you can keep this blank.

          Next, your questions;
          Question: 1) I did not understand where you were reffering to execute the customise items from “Purchasing” to “Retail”?

          -> Goto GTM IMG, Tr-cd: WB2B_CUS or GTM under Logistics General (SAP IMG)
          You will see ‘Pricing’ under SAP Global Trade Management, expand this tree, you will see Purchasing, Sales, Retail and one more (this is not important for you).
          You need to walk through these three.

          2) I am using GTM001 & GTS001 and have the same problem. Therefore, there is a error in my config. Please can you suggest what I should possibly look for?
          It seems so, I have had many tough experiences because I did not have any retail background, so takes time for you too.

          I’ll send a doc via email separately.

          Thanks, Nob

            Hi,

            I need to configure trading contract in GTM for my client. I have no prior knowledge neither any document to do this. I tried creating a 2 sided trading contract but as soon as i enter the sales price i encounter an error “12 WV E 228 No sales prices possible at plant level for distribution chain 0001/01”. The document never gets approved. I am clueless as to what needs to be done. IF you can send me some documents or help me sort this out it will be highly appreciable.

            Thanks.

              Hi,

              It’s really dificult to point out how to resolve your issues.

              1. Make sure your pricing strategy
              Either Retail pricing or Standard Pricing (SD/MM)

              2. If you decide to use Retail pricing, get a resource who knows Retail pricing and configure system referece with the template provided by SAP.

              If you decide to use Standard Pricing (SD/MM), make sure that you can create a Sales Order (S/O) and a Purchase Order (P/O) from SD/MM transaction first.
              If it does work, check item category, sales and purchase group setting and pricing in GTM IMG.

              Hope this helps.

              Thanks,

              Nob

    Hi Nobuhiro,

    I have a question about combining Credit Management with GMT. Our client want to use GTM for their trading. Some of their customers do not have letter of credits and therefore they are subjected to credit limits. The customers whish is to handle these by combining Credit Management with GTM. Is that possible? What would happen if you e.g. create an SO in GTM that is credit blocked by SD?

    Best Regards
    /Erik Öhrström

      Hi Eirk,

      Thank you for your contact.

      Credit Management in sales order does not work under GTM environment.
      There are two reasons why
      1. Most of existing GTM customers and trading companies have never used Credit Management because their Credit Management is more sophisticated and complicated

      2. We do skip this check when a Trading Contract (T/C) creates a subsequent sales order

      We, however, have a BAdI (Business Add-In), which is a place the project enables to insert own code in SAP (it’s not a modification but a common project practice), allows to read SD Credit Management table as needed.

      Credit Management in Delivery does work under GTM environment. No special setting for GTM, just configure SD Credit Management for delivery.

      Hope this helps.

      Thank you,

      Nob

        Hi Nob,

        First a late but great thanks for your answer two my initial question!

        Although we have explained to our client that implementing a Credit Management connection to GTM is a cumbersome thing to do involving a lot of development they are still keen on getting it. To get a better understanding of the complexity of such an enhancement I would like to ask you some additional questions.

        First a quick summary of the clients requirements:
        – Credit limit check at TC-level (Check on delivery is to late)
        – TC with total amount exceeding credit limit should be blocked
        – Blocked TC should not be possible to approve

        To support above this we see tow options for when SD Credit Management tables should be read.
        – At every save of TC (order blocked if limit exceeded)
        – At approval of TC (approval not possible if limit exceeded)

        The design that we will choose depends of whether the existing BAdI is read at every save of TC or at approval of TC (if read at all when executing TC).

        1. Consequently my first question is at what stage the BAdI is read. Is it when saving or executing the TC or even at a later stage when the SO is created?
        2. What is the name of the specific BAdI?
        3. Do you know if this connection has been set up at any SAP GTM customer? If so, do you have any input, feedback or comments on the success of the solution.
        4. My final question is whether it is possible to block a TC due to exceeding credit limit like the ordinary Credit Management block on SOs?

        Would very much appreciate your feedback on the above questions. Thanks in advance!

        Regards
        /Erik

          Hi Nob
          We are using ECC6 retail and have upgraded to EhP4.
          We would like to use GTM functionality to manage our drop-shipment processes, but we have a few challanges with Credit management. We would like the TC blocked in the case of a Credit Check failure. This should prevent any follow-on documents from being created.
          All the documentation seems to indicate that the TC’s and Credit Management would work seemlessly.

          The problem is that the system seems to want to look at FSCM for the CM functionality. This apparently is a licenced module, which we do not have. Is there a way to use the SO credit checks within the TC? If so, what is the delivered business process. I have not been able to obtain any documentation of how the CR and GTM should work.
          Secondly, as a work around we have activated CM agaist the SO and these checks block the SO during the Follow-on process, but we are unable to update the status of the TC with a ‘Credit Block’ and we will also NOT want to PO created in the case of a Credit block.

          Ideally we would want the credit release in the TC to automatically unblock the SO and then auto create the corresponding PO. I assume that this is all possible by using the BAdi’s that have been provided, but seeing as we are not familiar with the CM design, I am  hoping that you could shed some light on the issue.
          I look forward to your feedback

          Hi Erik,

          First of all, very sorry for my delayed res.
          I have no excuse for that, but have been very busy in last a couple of weeks and still am.

          If you already tried something and succeeded it, please ignore my reply. The way you succeeded is always the best way.

          To answer your questions in order.

          1. Consequently my first question is at what stage the BAdI is read. Is it when saving or executing the TC or even at a later stage when the SO is created?

          > We have a tons of BAdIs inside T/C, so which one is better or best for you is highly depend on what you want to do with it.

          I, however, know that is not the answer you expect. so here is some where you start.
          If you looking at BAdIs working inside T/C, please take a look at the BADI definition ‘TC_CHANGE’ first and check the methods.

          Also, the following BAdIs are useful for you.
          WB2_RELEASE_CHANGES
          WB2_TC_INCOMP_LOG

          2. What is the name of the specific BAdI?

          > See the above

          3. Do you know if this connection has been set up at any SAP GTM customer? If so, do you have any input, feedback or comments on the success of the solution.

          > Many customer did it by their own way, that is why we could not deliver a standard credit limit check for GTM.
          Needless to say, we went live with it successfully.

          4. My final question is whether it is possible to block a TC due to exceeding credit limit like the ordinary Credit Management block on SOs?

          If you did customize SD credit limit and customer master correctly, it should work when you release a T/C and get some error/warnings from them.
          Only the difference between SD credit limit and GTM is that credit limit check is not working during T/C creation and not blocked before release operation.
          But if you get any error during release, a T/C is failed to create the following docs and need some user actions.

  3. Hi Nobuhiro,

    I would like to manage customer billing with millestone billing manage in customer order. I have set up a billing plan but depending from the case it has to be managed (delete or add step, modifiy % of billing, etc…) BUT in standard the system does not allow me to manage my customer order with transaction VA02.

    Is it possible to make it different?

    Thanks for your help.

      Hi,

      Very sorry for my delayed res because I was on vacation and not able to respond in a timely fashion.

      First of all, before answering your question, I need to tell you something.
      If you create a Sales Order (S/O) from a Trading Contract (T/C), you are not allowed to change any data in S/O directlly.
      Whenever you need to maintain the data in S/O, you need to change that data in T/C and release (synchronize) it, otherwise you may have data inconsistency in between.

      Next, assuming you trying to set up a billing cycle like lease or rental fee with billing plan.
      To be honest, I am not an expert for that area and never tried it under/over GTM environment.

      You could change some data in S/O using the BAdIs we deliver, but the point is that I don’t know which S/O table stores billing plan data and we interface them in the standard BAdIs.

      Here are the steps;
      1. Need to set up the framework (maybe a table control) as S/Os billing plan in T/C (which we don’t have this as standard, but enable to add this in GT add-on tab)
      2. Need to implement PAI/PBO online transaction logic and some BAdIs to transfer that data to the sebsequent S/O

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks, Nob

          Hi Nobuhiro,
          In the Trading Contract transaction, is there a possibility in allowing subsequent documents like sales order, purchase order or delivery to be accessed in change mode? or is this also possible in the TEW transaction?

            I have no excuse for that, but have been very busy in last a couple of weeks and still am.

            My answer for your question is ‘No’.
            We systematically block any direct change for the subsequent documents to avoid data inconsistency.
            Whenever user need to change the data whereever it is, they need to change the data in T/C and release that change to the following docs through GTM interfce.

            I have been asked same questions many times, but this is what it is.

            Thank you for your understanding,

    Hi Nobuhiro,

    We need to add two new fields to the GTM trading contract, namely: ‘Valid from date’ and ‘valid to date’.

    I see badi ‘WB2_ADDITIONAL_DATA’ could be used here? Is there any detailed documentation for this badi?

    Thanks, Henry

      Hi,

      First of all, very sorry for my delayed res.
      I have no excuse for that, but have been very busy in last a couple of weeks and still am.

      To add extra fields is not super difficult, but I need to ask you a question before answering your question 😉

      Don’t you want to transfer that extra two fields data to the following documents?
      Many GTM customers want that.

      If so, you need to check the paramenter setting ‘Add-Ons Active’ of ‘Active Components’ under GTM customise.
      There are three options,
      – Active for Trading Contract only
      – Active for all documents
      – None

      This is step zero.

      I will cut and past a sample for all documents will cover everything.
      As soon as you select ‘all documents’, a GTM tab appears in some key SD/MM document’s header and item level.
      And you could manage (create/change/delete etc) any data exists in that area as you want while the documents being processed.
      This is one of the benefits GTM brings you.

      – Prerequisite

      The documents we can transfer the additional data are T/C, S/O, P/O, O/D, G/R and Billing.

      There is no GT tab on LIV.

      Please make sure this meets your requirement first.

      – How to do
      1. Append user field into table ‘WBGT’

      2. Create Function Group, Function Module and Screen

      2.1 Create Function Group for global data definition

      2.2 Create Function Module for data transfer

      2.3 Create Subscreen and paste user field

      3. Call Function Group and Screen using BAdI
        BAdI: WB2_ADDITIONAL_DATA
          Method: GET_SCREEN (Header)
                  GET_TAXI_SCREEN (Item)

      4. Create logic to data transfer
        BAdI: WB2_ADDITIONAL_DATA
          Method: SET_HEADER_DATA (Header)
                  SET_DATA (Item)
                  SET_DOCUMENT_DATA (Overview screen)

      5. Data Transfer to S/O and P/O
        BAdI: WB2_ADDITIONAL_DATA
          Method: CHANGE_DATA

      Just for your information,
      – If you want to change tab strip name for item,
          BAdI: WB2_ADDITIONAL_DATA
             Method: CCHANGE_TAXI_CAPTIONS
             Change parameter ‘C_TABSTRIP_CAPTIONS’

      – If you want to check user field you added when user try to release T/C
         BADI: WB2_TC_IMCOMP_LOG
           Method: CHANGE_INCOMP_LOG

      Hope this saves your days and weeks.

      Thanks, Nob

        Hello Nobuhiro,

        Thanks a lot for the detail explanation for adding new fields in GTM Trading Contract.

        I tried the same procedure, and was successfully able to capture the data of the newly added field at the trading contract level.

        But I am facing problem to transfer the data of newly added field to SO and PO. I implemented the method CHANGE_DATA of badi WB2_ADDITIONAL_DATA as suggested by you for data transfer, but when I open the follow on document, for e.g. SO, I am not able to see new fields in the GTM tab.

        This requirement is very critical for my current client.
        It will be very helpful if you guide on the same.
        Awaiting your sooner response.

        Thanks and Best Regards,

          First of all, very sorry for my delayed res because I was on vacation.

          It’s really challenging to give you any advise without seeing the system, but let me try.

          Please check the attributes of your BAdI implementation (WB2_ADDITIONAL_DATA).
          There is a filter definition by document type (i.e. ‘Q’ for Trading Contract) and make sure you added at least ‘A’ sales order, ‘C’ purchase order.

          Thanks,

          Nob

      Hi,

      Since I don’t know which release of SAP you are using, I need to tell you this first.
      To use Position Management, you need to run SAP R/3 Enterprise (4.7) Extention Set 2.00 or higher.

      If you meet this prerequsite, go to SAP IMG (Tr-cd:SPRO) and follow the path below.
      Logistics (General) – SAP Global Trade Management – Active Components

      and you can see the check box said ‘AssocMgt Active’.
      This is it.

      Hope this helps,

      Nob

    Hello Mr. GTM:

    can you explain more about GTM copy control?
    It is noticed that one can set itemcategories & trading contract type copy control but like other SAP modules, in GTM we cannot attach copying routines to it. 
    moreover it looks due to extensive use of GTM badis..everything is most of the time handeled in BADI. 

    waiting for reply.

      Hi,

      As you can see it in GTM customize tree (Trading Contract – Trading Contract: Copy Control), that’s all we provide as standard.
      We don’t support copy routine but have BAdIs instead and believe that these BAdIs meet your needs.

      I.e. WB2_DOCUMENT_COPY is the one you can enhance your copy rule/logic.

      Please try it.

      Thanks,

      Nob

    Hi Nob

    We are going to use GTM in our project. We are on ECC6 Ehp4 on a retail system.
    We wish to use the Credit management functionality, but cannot get this to work. Firstly because there is very little or no documetation on what the SAP best practice process is for using CM in a TC. It is  strange that SAP provides the congif settings to activate the CM at the Item category and within the Sales group, but seems to stop there.
    Secondly, based on discussions with OSS (Message 789369), there does not appeart to be any STD credit override agaist a ‘blocked’ TC. The customers credit limit must be increased to allow the process to proceed.
    Can you please advise
    Regards
    Kevin Brock

      Hi,

      Very sorry for my delayed response.
      I need to wait for a couple days to see whether someone steps up and respond you for me.

      Okay, Credit Management again.
      First of all, did you take a look at the past blog communication about Credit Management below?

      If not, please read it first.

      If you read it, but still post this.

      Here is my thought.
      We are really sorry for you about the short of information/documentation in the area you looking for.
      That is true and we are trying to improve that, but not easy and takes time to get there.
      To complement that situation, I had started this blog to communicate and share the information.

      If I understand what you want to do, you would like to have T/C works like S/O does in terms of Credit Management.
      When a user creates a T/C and hit Credit Management check and if there is any issue, put a T/C block and assign to special application status.
      Ideally a report program provided to re-release a T/C after data correction.
      Right?

      Well, to say is easy, but to build a best practice platform is not easy.

      Many existing GTM customers do not have different ideas/processes for credit management.
      GTM is originally designed as a solution for trading and they are a little bit different from the other industries.
      Of course, nowadays we advanced to other industry areas and need to re-think it.
      But this is what it is.

      There are two ways for you to use Credit Management in T/C.
      1) Credit Management (FI-AR-CR) at TC release
      When T/C is released, ‘SD_ORDER_CREDIT_CHECK’ is called and the appropriate message(s) is returned.

      2) SAP Credit Management (FIN-FSCM-CR) at TC status check and TC data save.
      When a user create a T/C and status check is called while the T/C is being processed.
      Needless to say, this requires SAP FSCM module.

      If you adhere the option 1, it’s still possible, but need some additional efforts to get this work and this is NOT provided from SAP out of box.

      Of course, if you need a help, SAP professional service organization will support you as a consulting service.

      Hope this helps you understand what is standard, what is not and clarify our response.

      Thank you,

      Nob

    Hi Nob,

    We are looking to use GTM with Retail Pricing.

    In short we want pricing on GTM to replicate the Retail Pricing: Sales Price = Purchae Cost + Mark Up.

    But GTM Pricing GTS001 appears to be using formula 350 which does not behave in a similar fashion as retail pricing.

    There is absolutely no documentation on the Retail Pricing feature of GTM.

    Regards,
    Naveen

      Thank you,

      Nob

    Dear Nob
    It is very nice of GTM to have additional data tab on every follow-on logistics document (except MIRO IV). You also have already explained how to fill this data using BADI .  Now I want to use this additional data in various logistics user-exits (incompletion logs, sales pricing, CO-PA transfer routines, etc). Naturally interface of those user-exit doesn’t  contain GTM additional data.   Do you know any FM or method with which I can get access to GTM additional data from within logistics document itself? Of cause I can always fall back to just using SELECT of WBGT with preceding document as a key, but I  am reluctant of doing this as, theoretically, user can change GTM data in document itself.
    Thanks in advance.
    Sergey.

    Hi Mr.GTM,

    1. Is there a possibility of creation of Trading contract from Sales contract?
    2. Also, can we have sales contract & purchase contract created from Trading contract rather than sales order & purchase order i.e. like Exchange agreement?

    Regards,
    KK

      Hi,

      Very sorry for my delayed res.

      Here are the answers;
      1. Not in standard.

      2. With ERP6.0 ehP5, you enables to create a purchase contract from T/C. This means not P/C -> T/C but T/C -> P/C.

      This is just an idea, but since EhP5 user can creat T/C from S/O or P/O, if these S/O or P/O gets created from S/C or P/O, you can connect S/C or P/C and T/C indirectly.
      Never try it, but worth try it.

      Thanks,

      Nob

    Hi Mr.GTM,
    List fields in retail pricing are generally used to update values especially for the pricing document. My question is –
    Is that the basic functionality or do they have any other functions in retail pricing?

    Also, although, I have maintained Pricing Procedure GTS001 as Pricing Procedure for the Pricing type 1000, it picks GTS002 ( a new pricing procedure that I created) in the pricing document because GTS002 is the pricing procedure that is assigned in the standard Pricing Procedure determination in Sales pricing to that particular Sales Area, Doc PP and Cust PP. Does that mean that Sales Pricing Procedure Determination has precedence over teh Retail detrmination through Pricing Type?
    In that case, is there any way I can use only Retail Pricing Procedure Determination without Sales PP determination?

      Hi,

      Sorry for my delayed res due to my travel.

      First, you need to decide your pricing strategy first, either Retail Pricing or Standard Pricing (SD/MM pricing).

      And then, you configure the T/C based on your pricing strategy above.
      Once you have done, you need to start basic pricing configuration for either Retain pricing or standard pricing.

      Standard pricing procedure GTS001 SAP provides is originally created for Retail pricing for sales, and GTM001 is for purchasing.
      If you have chosen Retail pricing, you need to externd your configuration in Retail pricing under GTM IMG.

      If you decide to use standard (SD/MM) pricing, it’s way easier because you use standard SD/MM pricing like RVxxxx,RMxxxxx.
      And do the basic pricing configuration.

      Your situation obviously missing some configuration (pick up wrong PP) and recommend to contact expert.

      Thanks,

      Nob

    Hi Nob,

    I have a scenario, like I have a freight cost (fixed value) applicable for all items in the T/C, i want the system to split in among the items in the ratio of their net values
    As there is no option for me to enter the header conditions in T/C, i need to enter it manually in to the item conditions manually, which is very cumbersome if i have many items.

    Alternatively, if I have an planned expense condition for freight (defined as group condition, item condition as well as header condition), this also passing this expense value to each of the item and making my freight expense multiplied by number of items which again is wrong.

    Please help me in finding a way out

    thanks

    Hi,

    I am creating T/C first time while creating this i have done initial settings but when i enter sales price or purchase price i am getting below message.

      Hi,

      Sorry for my delayed res.

      It seems that you would like to use standard (SD/MM) pricing on T/C.

      Since I’ve never gotten this message before, I can’t tell you the exact where your problem came from, but please make sure your setting on the following points;

      1. You can create a sales order with current setting (no pricing error)
      2. Make sure you have set ‘1 Using Standard Pricing’ at the Pricing field in Trading Contract type

      Thanks,

      Nob

    Partner tab.pngHi Nobuhiro,

    Today when I create a new contract, sistem automatically asociates partners from vendor master record.

    I´d like to know how to avoid system automatically update the partner tab with partner functions from vendor master record.

    Thanks for you cooperation.

    Regards.

      Hi,

      Not sure you want to achieve here, but let me propose some;

      – blank your partner determination proc. from T/C type

      – use BAdI “TC_CHANGE”, Method “AT_PARTNER_PROCESSSING” for whatever you want to play with your partner data

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks, Nob
