confused in determination of storage location

Dear experts!

Thank you for your attention!

I am confused in determination of storage location.

We know that standard material has a "plant data/ stor. 1" data in their master record.

But when we creat a sales order, why doesn't the system determine the stor. location from the master record but leave the stor. location field blank?????

And we know, the the stor. location can be determined by shipping pointplantshipping condition. Is this necessary, as the material should has a "plant data/ stor. 1" data for determine stor. location?????

Best regard!

Storage location is normally not determined in sales order

It is determined only in delivery

If you want storage location to be determined for sales order then you have to use userexit

If storage location is specified manually in sales order then it is copied into delivery

Otherwise it is determined using either MALA,RETA or MARE rules which we specify in delivery doc type
