Yes it can appear as a 2nd line in delivery.

Automatic packaging instructions has to be written in pop1and pof1 with standard SHIP condition record determination has to be given.

Make sure of the following settings.

1.Go to *SPRO-

2.Logistics Execution-

3.Packing-Define packaging material types-

4.Select ur packaging material type-

5.In Plant Determination -Enter Plant proposed from the packaging material*.


There are two logics regarding generation of delivery items for packaging materials. You can check those two cases in note 831204.

case I)


1) you should check transaction 0184 if a delivery item category is defined for the combination of your

*delivery type +

*item category group that is defined in the material master of the packaging material (should be 'VERP' in standard) -> in case of outbound deliveries it is defined under 'Sales' view of material master, -> in case of inbound deliveries the data in field 'General Item Category Group' is relevant under 'Basic data 1' view of material master) +

*the item usage 'PACK'


2) you should check your settings for the plant determination of the packaging material in tr. vhar -> this should be 'A' or 'B'



case II)


1) same as in case I)


2) check tr. 0vlk if 'Gen. pack.matl item' is flagged for your delivery type


3) check your settings for generating delivery items for the packaging material in tr. vhar -> this should be 'A' or 'B'
