Rony,

Sorry to take so long to respond, we had an "opportunity" yesterday here 
at work. 

Al has some good points in his suggestions, The main reason I said not to 
use the order type is due to the limitations that could result  due to it 
being a one position alphanumeric field (and normally Accounting lays 
claim to ownership). We use order CLASS to distinguish between markets and 
territories. You can also use the SCRF1 through SCRF5 (User Defined Sales 
Analysis headings for Customer) and the SIRF1 through SIRF5 (user defined 
Sales Analysis headings for Items ) that are on the SALES panel of the 
Customer Master and the ORDER panel of the Item Master record. You can 
define the field label values in SAL820 and add different field values 
selections in the SYS105 code master file (take a look at these fields in 
the customer master/item master and hit the field level "help" to see the 
BPCS explanation of how these are used). Another possibility for your 
application might be to create a special Promotion for product that you 
intend to donate (as one example). Any of these approaches will provide 
you with ample tracking data. Good luck.

Fwd: [BPCS-L] Sales order type






 Frederick,

Can you give me more details ? Is this a per-user setting ?

For example, we donate products from several LOBs and we want the costs 
and
taxes of these donations to be booked to the appropriate cost center 
(based
on the product line that is being donated). If a salesperson wants to 
donate
another product, it'll have to be booked against another cost center. 
That's
why I wanted to choose an sales order type "donation" and a reason code
specifying that this order should be booked to cost center xxx...

Thanks,
