2958287 - Shipping Condition determination in sales order


The shipping point is not copied from the preceding document, e.g. from sales contract (CQ) to sales order (OR).



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a sales order (OR) with reference to a sales contract (CQ).

  2. Check the shipping condition in the sales order header on the shipping tab.


When creating a sales order from the Create Sales Orders - VA01 app, the system tries to determine the shipping condition as follows:

  • 1st priority:
    • Shipping condition from Customizing of the used sales order type. This can be checked in the Manage Your Solution app -> Application Area: Supply Chain -> Sub Application Area: Delivery Management -> Shipping Point and Goods Receiving Point Determination -> Define Shipping Conditions by Sales Document Type. Check the corresponding sales document type.
  • 2nd priority:
    • Shipping condition in the sold-to party. This can be checked in the Manage Customer Master Data app -> select the respective customer -> go to Sales Area tab -> at the Sales Area Details, you can find Shipping Conditions field.

However, the standard field for the shipping condition is not available through data transfer routines and copying requirement routines for sales documents. So, it means that currently there is no possibility to copy the shipping condition from a preceding sales document into a subsequent sales document through copying control.


It is standard system behavior.
