Output Type (SD) 

The output type is used to represent various forms of output in the SAP R/3 system. Sales and Distribution processing uses output types such as order confirmation, freight list, invoice, and so on. You use the output type to control whether an order confirmation, for example, is sent through EDI.

In the Customizing application, you can display the output types available in the SAP R/3 system. To display sales output types, for example, go to Customizing and choose Sales and Distribution ® Basic Functions ® Output Control ® Output Determination ® Output Determination Using the Condition Technique ® Maintain Output Determination for Sales Documents ® Maintain Output Types.
