    Hi, Krishna,

    After system automatically created the credit request, I check at Tcode VA02 and see that the quantity =0, and value also =0, although I manually fill the value in VBO2.

    Can you explain the case?

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you for the good documents. I have a plan to apply the rebate function for royalty payment that is driven by material. So is there a way to define a rebate agreement by materials instead of customer recipient – customer. Thanks. Michael

      A rebate recipient is mandatory for a rebate agreement. For every customer who is liable for rebate, you will need a separate rebate agreement in SAP standard.

    I have read some article about using rebate functionality for comission calculation and settlement.

    Does anybody knows if there is any kind of development behind it? Because using rebates for this, I would need to create the rebate for the sales comission person, and also the customer on sales order should be the sales comission. But this does not happen… the customer is the sold to party in sales order, and the sales comission person will be in another partner function in header document.

    Does anybody can help me on this?
