The above voucher categories are assigned as attributes to each purchase proof in the EKKO head data table (field: EKKO_BSTYP). This means that the document category allows us to distinguish delivery plans from other contracts. But how do you distinguish value contracts from volume contracts? This is where the storm table described above comes in: in the standard, the type of contract “MK” is for volume contracts and “WK” for value contracts. However, both types of documents have the same category of “K” document. While document categories are primarily used for categorization, document types are often used to customize, i.e. attributes are assigned to document types, which are then used to organize the process/control process in a system. You can also be in the EKKO table, the field name is EKKO_BSART. Now it`s becoming exciting (at least for data analysts): framework agreements such as quantity contracts, value contracts and delivery plans are not stored in their own tables, but also in the EKKO and EKPO tables. So don`t get confused by names or take them too literally. Now that we have discovered where the framework agreements are kept as data — in tables where you actually suspect standard commands — and how to identify them — by document category and document type — let`s look at some aspects of the process. It was in KONP, but there is no link sign for each delivery plan. Data model – Order and framework agreement contracts are often general in nature. This may be the case with SAP® because the buying organization is essential (and the work that may be related to the purchase organization).
The purchase organization is shown in the EKKO table for each agreement (field: EKKO_EKORG). However, in high-demand structures, large contracts (for example. B the purchase of laptops throughout the company) are negotiated centrally and can then be used in a decentralized manner. In this case, it is possible to cooperate with near-superior purchasing organizations, which are attached to decentralized purchasing organizations as a reference purchasing organization.
