I'm having a sales order item with a wrong shipping point. When the shipping point is corrected to another one with a different departure country, the MWST condition is actually not updated. Then I look into the price analysis and find that departure country is still the old one of that wrong shipping point.
Our MWST is using standard access sequence - departure country -> destination country. It seems departure country is now getting updated from the shipping point of Customer-material info record. Where is this logic configured and how can I change it to be picked from the shipping point of sales order item?
Any input would be highly appreciated
FYI, logically & as per best practices, departure country for tax determination gets determine from Delivery plant, not shipping point. Shipping point only re-determines freight & route.
Have look on table KNMT for Customer-Material Info Record(CMIR). Let us know whether you can find any other field like departure country or shipping point in CMIR apart from following fields:
|MINLF||Min. dely qty|
Yes we do have Plant (WERKS) in the table and that's how I'm testing the source of KOMK-ALAND. If I make a change to the plant so that it becomes another country, I will see the change from sales order when I click on PRICE UPDATE. That's why I assume the current configuration is that departure country is from the delivering plant field of CMIR.
Hi Zh y,
I think you are confusing between Delivery plant and Shipping point because both have the same naming code. As JP has already mentioned, in standard SAP, departure country for tax determination gets determined from delivery plant and plant determination rule is as follows
1) Customer-material info record
2) Customer master
3) Material master
Please let us know what further help is required.
Thanks & Regards
Thank you Govind. Let me make myself more clear.
We are using standard MWST condition and access sequence is Departure country / Destination country. Basically my question is about the source of Departure country. I have checked customizing for Tax country / plant assignment but there is nothing wrong with it.
My test also proves what you described - it is from the plant field of Customer-material info record. But I want to know how can I change the configuration so that I can make the KOMK-ALAND come from sales order delivering plant instead.
Hope you are aware, how delivery plant automatically gets determine in sales order?
In order of priority for determination
2. Customer Master
3. Material Master.
For example and fields, refer following discussion
If you still have concerns, please elaborate your requirement with example.
Hi Govind, actually the case is like this. A user has created a CMIR record with a wrong delivering plant. Then this plant is taken into sales order automatically and triggers a MWST condition value. Then the user corrects the delivering plant in sales order item and wishes to see an update of the MWST condition value. But it's not updated at all and we find the departure country is still from the old delivering plant. Then we realize that's from CMIR.
How come it's not taken from the sales order line...
it is from the plant field of Customer-material info record
Yes it is a standard functionality which has already been suggested. If you dont maintain any CMIR, then the next preference would be customer master and then material master.
how can I change the configuration so that I can make the KOMK-ALAND come from sales order delivering plant instead.
Do you mean to say CMIR data differs from your sale order data ? Ideally, it should not be.
