Each document in SAP is used for a speciic purpose. The document type in SAP controls the document header and is used to differentiate the business transactions to be posted. In SAP, document types are defined at the client level and hence are valid for all company codes. The SAP R/3 system comes pre-delivered with standard document types which can be used, changed and copied to make custom document types. Below are a few examples of standard document types in SAP.

The document type controls how a document is stored and edited. You therefore need to make the Customizing settings relevant to the document type.

SAP supplies the Document Types Customizing Wizard to help create new document types. You can also use the Document Types Customizing Wizard repeatedly to create new document types when the system is in operation.
