Import Sales Orders – Part6: Manual completion of imports and import items

In apps for importing sales documents (for example, Import Sales Orders), document creation may fail for some records. This can be caused by invalid data in your spreadsheet file, missing master data, or system errors. When an import contains errors, the creation status of some import items is “Failed” and the processing status of the related import is “Contains errors”. As of SAP S/4HANA 2202.1, you can manually complete such imports or import items, if you don’t want to continue with further processing.


In app Import Sales Documents, select an import. The import contains two import items, wherein document creation has succeeded for one items and failed for one item.

Branch to the import to view import details.

Choose the failed item and click the “Set as Completed” button. The creation status of the item and the processing status of the import change to “Manually Completed”.


  • You can manually complete imports (on the list page) and import items (on the object page). Multi-selection is supported. This function only takes effect on imports that contain errors and failed import items.
  • When the creation status of an import item stays in “Scheduled” more than two hours, the system will change it to “Failed” automatically.

      Hello Frank, thank you for the written up on manual completion of imports. I find it very useful. Is this feature automatically available in CE 2202.1 release or is there a feature activation required?

      Hi, It's available in CE 2202.1, but it's controlled by a feature toggle. You need to open the certain feature toggle to active the feature. The description of the feature toggle should be "Manual Completion of Imports and Import Items".
