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. Frederick C. Davy, CPIM, PMP Business Systems Analyst Interface Solution, Inc.

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...
