Contract data allowed

Definition

The indicator you enter in this field controls the following:

1. Whether you can enter contract data for a sales document of this type
2. How changes made in the contract header affect the contract item data
Contract header data applies to all the contract items until you enter data at item level which differs from the header data. Once item data differs from the header, it is the indicator you set in this field which determines how changes to the contract header affect the contract item data:
If the indicator X has been set in the Contract data allwd field, any changes you make to the contract header data will not be copied into the items. This applies even if the contract item data was identical to the contract header data before you made the changes to the header data.
If the indicator Y has been set in the Contract data allwd field, any changes you make to the contract header data are automatically copied into the items if the contract item data was identical to the contract header data before you made the changes. When you make changes to data in the header of a contract, the system determines whether the data should be copied into the items. On completing this process, the system issues a log which informs you of the actions it has taken. It also informs you of any problems or inconsistencies which require your attention.
Each entry in the log specifies the following:
From the action log you can perform functions such as the following:
The entries in the log are color-coded according to their significance for further processing (for example, red for errors, white for information).
Some of the checks performed by the system during the copying process are listed below:
The contract item data valid at the time the contract was cancelled at header level is used to determine this date.
You need to reject or delete the item manually.
You need to change the item validity period manually.
After the contract header data has been copied into the items during contract creation, the rules for indirect date determination are deleted as the indirect date determination function is not performed item level.
You can define your own checks to be performed by the system during the copying process. The user exit SAPLV45W_001 is provided for this purpose. For further information on this user exit, see the documentation for the IMG activity 'User Exits in Contract Processing'
