Hi Arpita,

Text determination helps in when some information to flow from Customer Master, Material Master and also from one document to other.

And this can be hard coded or Transaction or from Master Data.

Ex: From Customer Master : If it is default for that customer, then the same can be maintained in CMR.

Similarly for Material: Ex: In case of Material Chapter ID is default. so the same can be maintained in MMR.

Then coming to documents:

From Sale order to Delivery and to Billing.

Some informaiton from SO to DL is mandatory

then the same can be hard coded.

Ex: Transport information to be printed in Delivery note.

For this in Sale order Header Text Add one text ID: ZTRA and ask ABAPer to Hard code the following:

Name of Transporter: ________________

Lorry No: _________________________

Then at the time of Delivery in the blank fileds they will enter the concerned information.

All this can be done in VOTXN.

Revert back for any clarifications.
