Create Sales Orders – Automatic Extraction (Part1): Configuration Activity

Hello everyone,

The blog will introduce the configuration activity Adapt Settings by Company Code for the app Create Sales Orders – Automatic Extraction.

You can find this configuration activity in the Manage Your Solution app (as shown in the description below) or in SAP Central Business Configuration. For more information, see Configuration Environment of SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

If you use the Manage Your Solution app, you can find the configuration item Automatic Sales Order Creation Based on Extracted Data with the filter Application Area: Sales and Sub Application Area: Sales Order Management and Processing.

Navigate to the configuration activity Adapt Settings by Company Code, and choose Configure.

Company Code

As a key field, company code is mandatory for each record.

Note: In the app Create Sales Orders – Automatic Extraction, when you create a sales order request, the company code is also necessary.

Ship-to Party Mandatory

This field is to configure whether the Ship-to Party field of sales order request is mandatory or not.

  • When Ship-to Party field is mandatory, sales order cannot be created from sales order request until the field has proper value.

In edit mode, you can see there is a mandatory flag besides the field.

In display mode, you can see the Create Sales Order and Simulate Creation buttons are inactive, and Processing Status is “Data Incomplete”, because Ship-to Party field doesn’t have a value.

  • When Ship-to Party field isn’t mandatory, sales order can be created from sales order request with an empty ship-to party.

In edit mode, you can see there isn’t a mandatory flag besides the field.

In display mode, you can see the Create Sales Order and Simulate Creation buttons are active, and Processing Status is “Data Complete”, even Ship-to Party field doesn’t have a value.

Duplicate Check by File

The field is to configure whether you can upload the same file twice.

Now you can see the Duplicate Check by File is disabled for company code 1710; but for company code 1610 it’s enabled.

In Create Sales Orders – Automatic Extraction, the file Temolate4_pdf.pdf has been uploaded.

  • Duplicate check by file enabledWhen you upload Temolate4_pdf.pdf again, an error message tells you the same file has already been uploaded to a sales order request. So you cannot create another sales order request with the same file.
  • Duplicate check by file disabled

When you upload Temolate4_pdf.pdf again, another sales order request is created successfully with the same file.

That is all, if any question, you can write a comment under the blog. Thanks.
