Changes to the Goods Receipt/Issue Slip and Shipping Order

Description

In the automobile industry, the goods receipt/issue slip and the shipping order are used regularly. The goods receipt/issue slip contains the respective packing hierarchy for each item and can be views as an alternative to the delivery note. The shipping order is given to the forwarding agent on collection of the goods and is meant for the ship-to party. This means that the document is actually used as a bill of lading. This document can be based on either a delivery or a shipment.

In 3.1I and 4.0A the print programs for both accompanying slips have been completely revised. There is now a program for each document that can be used in both the shipment and the delivery. This guarantees a greater degree of consistency. This is refelected in the new output types WABS (goods receipt/issue slip) and SPAT (shipping order) which now exist in the delivery and shipment. This also improves performance levels.

Change system parameters in customizing

If the documents have not been used up till now, the two new output types have to be used. They need to be entered in the output determination procedure. To do this, select Maintain output determination procedure for deliveries or Maintain determination procedure for shipments.

If the documents have already been used under the old output types WB00, WB01 and WB02 (goods receipt/issue slip) and SA00 and SA01 (shipping order), you need to assign the new processing program. To do this, select forms and programs Assign shipping document or Assign shipments The following assignments apply to applications V2 (delivery) and V7 (shipment) for output type and transmission medium, for programm, routines and FORM:

V2 WB00 1 RVADWABS ENTRY RV_CONNOTE_SUPPL

V2 SA00 1 RVADSPAT ENTRY RV_FREIGHT_SUPPL

V7 WB01 1 RVADWABS ENTRY RV_CONNOTE_SUPPL

V7 WB02 1 RVADWABS ENTRY RV_CONNOTE_SUPPL

V7 SA01 1 RVADSPAT ENTRY RV_FREIGHT_SUPPL

Use an analogous procedure if you are copying the output types. Please note that these entries are absolutley essential because the old processing programs no longer exist.

Further notes

In both papers, identification of the forwarding agent at the ship-to party is required. Up till now, the partner had to be maintained for each sales area and customer. In 4.0A there is a new, more general conversion. You can maintain the necessary master data under Sales and Distribution -> Master data -> Output -> Partner conversion. This conversion is also used in the delivery interface.
