In SAP Business ByDesign, when activating the Intrastat Work Center, there is a possibility to upload the commodity catalog in addition to maintain it manually.

There are partners that provide complete commodity catalogs in the most actual version.

However, if you only have a certain number of dedicated commodity codes, you might want to upload it on your own.

As described in the Online Help the xml-format is the supported file format for uploading.

So, I listed a sample code below. You can use it for reference and maintain it with any xml editor of your choice.

The code example contains:

  • Setting the measurements
  • Providing the Hierarchy Levels and the underlying 8-digit codes with the parent reference
  • Providing 8-digit codes without hierarchy level (last two examples)
  • Providing examples with more than one language
