  • International Trade item has letter "G" added after the value.
  • Unexpected value for Item number in International trade.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud
  • International Trade Compliance

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create STO document.
  2. An extra item with the letter 'G' can be seen in International Trade compliance apps such as 'Manage Documents' & 'Analyze and Resolve Blocked documents'.


This is expected behavior for STO items and the process is as follows: 

  • For each PO item, a special item for STO is created. The item number of such special items will be ‘Original Item Number’ + ’G’. For example, if original item in PO is 10, then special item created for the export check shall have item number as 10G.
  • only export control check is performed for such items (i.e. no Embargo and Watchlist screening).
  • The check result of special item is aggregated with the original item check result.
