Determination of VAS in Purchase Documents Using Conditions

VAS items can be determined in purchase documents using conditions. VAS data can also be manually entered in purchase documents.

Manual Entry of VAS in Purchase Documents

In addition to the option of defining value-added services as conditions, you can enter the VAS data manually in a purchase document. This is especially useful for a new customer who requests value-added services. Before you define conditions for such a customer, you probably want to see how business with this customer develops.

The manual entry of VAS data also makes sense for a customer who only requests value-added services occasionally or for one specific delivery, for customers who require differing services for each document, or want identical ticketing/labeling, packing or other services only for part of the items in the document.

You can maintain manual entries of VAS in the purchase documents using the VAS pushbutton. Alternatively, in the Go To menu, select   Value-Added Service   VAS Details  . Based on the VAS determination mode, VAS consumption in the document will be triggered. The VAS Determination Mode has impact on the VAS determination and VAS item generation during the consumption of VAS in purchase documents.

Redetermination of VAS Data

You can redetermine VAS data if you change the delivery date, item category, or any other key field that is used in determination of VAS condition records.

Overview of the VAS Data in Purchase Documents

For a quick overview of which value-added services exist in the purchase document at the header or the item level, you can call up the overview display. On the purchase document screen, in the Go To menu, select   Value-Added Service   VAS Data in Document  

If you wish to check the VAS details overview of multiple purchasing documents, on the SAP Easy Access Retailing menu (transaction W10M), choose   SAP Fashion Management   Value-Added Services (VAS)   VAS Details Overview in Purchasing Documents  

Deletion of VAS Data or Item

If VAS data or item has to be deleted in the dialog mode, you can do so using the VAS pushbutton. If a main item is deleted, then along with the main item, the corresponding VAS items are also deleted.

VAS details, including Items, can be sent through BAPIs from external systems for purchase order processing.
