The above voucher categories are assigned as attributes to each purchase proof in the EKKO head data table (field: EKKO_BSTYP). This means that the document category allows us to distinguish delivery plans from other contracts. But how do you distinguish value contracts from volume contracts? This is where the storm table described above comes in: in the standard, the type of contract “MK” is for volume contracts and “WK” for value contracts. However, both types of documents have the same category of “K” document. While document categories are primarily used for categorization, document types are often used to customize, i.e. attributes are assigned to document types, which are then used to organize the process/control process in a system. You can also be in the EKKO table, the field name is EKKO_BSART. Contracts are often superior in nature. This may be the case with SAP® because the buying organization is essential (and the work that may be related to the purchase organization).
The purchase organization is shown in the EKKO table for each agreement (field: EKKO_EKORG). However, in high-demand structures, large contracts (for example. B the purchase of laptops throughout the company) are negotiated centrally and can then be used in a decentralized manner. In this case, it is possible to cooperate with near-superior purchasing organizations, which are attached to decentralized purchasing organizations as a reference purchasing organization. They can then use and consult framework agreements established under the reference purchasing agency. From the data analyst`s perspective, you will find in table T024Z the allocation of purchasing organizations (field: T024Z_EKORG) to possible business reference organizations (field: T024Z_EKORZ). To return to standard commands, you can use z.B the ME23N transaction. T-code ME33K shows you contracts, and ME33L is correct for delivery plans. You can see that the category of Mnemonics K and L vouchers also appears in part in bookings. Agreements are now at the origin of a long-term structured procurement process. But what about individual buying on the concrete basis of an agreement? We are also talking about call-offs. These are specific specific markets, in reference to the framework agreement.
How you can determine these searches by analyzing the data, the tables in which they are recorded, and whether the information about goods and invoices is relevant or relevant in this context – this is something for the next post in the series.
