In order to create a release order for a quantity contract, proceed as follows:

  1. In the initial screen, choose Logistics ® Sales and Distribution ® Sales.
  2. Choose Order ® Create.
  3. Enter the order type and, if necessary, the organizational data.

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.

  1. Choose Sales document ® Create with reference.
    A dialog box appears.
  2. Choose the Contract tab page.
  3. Enter the contract number and the number of the partner requesting the goods (the releasing partner).
  4. 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.

  5. Choose Selection list.
  6. The quantities (quantity contract) or values (value contract) that have not yet been released for the contract items are displayed here.

  7. Change the quantities/values for this release. If certain contract items should not be copied in this release, deselect these items.
  8. Choose Copy.
  9. Enter the purchase order number for the customer.
  10. If you want to enter further data for the header or items, select the corresponding menu entry. If you wish to change data for an item, select the item before you choose the menu entry.
  11. Enter all the necessary data.
  12. Save your document.

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.
