In order to create a release order for a quantity contract, proceed as follows:
The values for sales organization, for distribution channel and the division are usually proposed from user-defined parameters. Entries for the sales office and the sales group are optional.
If the partner authorization check is activated in Customizing, the system checks whether the partner is authorized to release against the contract. If the partner is not authorized to release against the contract, you cannot continue processing the release order until you enter a partner who is authorized. If several ship-to parties are defined in the contract to which the release order refers, a dialog box containing the possible ship-to parties appears. You must select the ship-to party who is to receive the goods.
The quantities (quantity contract) or values (value contract) that have not yet been released for the contract items are displayed here.
Packing Information in the Release Order
You can specify packing proposals in a release order. You can decide how you want the individual items to be packed at delivery time. This information is then copied into the delivery during delivery processing and can, if necessary, be changed there.
To enter packing information in the release order, choose Extras® Packing proposal.
