Background documentation Integration of Down Payment Chain and Purchase Order  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

When you create or change a purchase order, the system checks whether the selected purchase order document type is assigned a chain type for a credit-side down payment chain in Customizing (see SAP Easy Accessmenu: Logistics Materials Management Purchasing Purchase Order Create Vendor/Supplying Plant Known and Logistics Materials Management Purchasing Purchase Order Change).

You specify the chain type for credit-side down payment chains in Customizing under Financial Accounting (New) Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Business Transactions Debit-Side and Credit-Side Down Payment Chains Define Chain Types.

You make the settings for the document type for the purchase order in Customizing for Materials Management under Purchasing Purchase Order.

If an appropriate assignment exists, the system displays the additional Down Payment Chain tab page for the purchase order item with item category Service in the details for the item and preassigns the chain type. When you have entered all the data and you save, the system automatically creates a contract for a credit-side down payment chain. The system transfers the following data from the purchase order or purchase order item to the contract:

      General data

       Company code

       Down payment chain name (from description of the purchase order item)

       Currency (from the purchase order item)

       External reference (from the purchase order item in the Down Payment Chain tab page)

       Vendor
If the invoicing party is specified, the system uses it as the vendor when it creates the contract; if it is not specified, the system uses the vendor in the purchase order.

      Account Assignment tab page

       Account assignment including the percentage distribution for multiple account assignment (from the purchase order item)

       Tax code (from the purchase order item)

       Contract value (net value from the purchase order item)

       Contract issue date (only when the contract is created)

       Completion date (only when the contract is created)

      Payment Agreements tab page

       Terms of payment key for partial invoices (only when the contract is created)

       Terms of payment key for final invoices (only when the contract is created)

      Chain Status tab page

       Chain type

       Created by and created on

       Last changed by and last changed on

       Status and block indicators

If changes are required in specific fields, make the changes in the purchase order. The system then updates the credit-side contract accordingly.
You cannot change most of the fields in the credit-side down payment chain contract.
