Item category usage.

Hi,

During item category determination, there is a filed called item category usage. Need more clarification in teh same, as to from where it is being pulled.

or Where does this particular filed have link to. is it material master or the order type?

When a materials is entered the item category is determined based on the Item category group in MM and Sales document type, provided the Higher level item category which is taken from the prior material. But what about the item category usage.

I have read throught the documents stating that they are ABAP hard coded, but again there are New entries options for the Usage. Which interns isnt linked to anywhere except item category determination.

thanks in advance,

Manu

Dear,

Item category Usage specifies the usage of the Item in the line item of a particular sales document.

For example.

Sales Doc Type += Item Category group + Usage of the Item + Higher level Item Category = TAN (STD EXAMPLE)

TA + NORM + (BLANK) +(BLANK) =TAN(STD ITEM)Ex:-HERO HONDA

if you had created document type = bor by renaming (TA).

And u had created another material(RAY BAN) with Item category group as (FREE).

Ex: If you want to buy a Hero Honda splendor for the RAY BAN googles are free then see.

Then the sales order of a line item will rise as.

Sales Doc Type += Item Category group + Usage of the Item + Higher level Item Category = TAN (STD ITEM)Ex: HERO HONDA)

BOR= NORM +FREE(RAY BAN) +TAN(HERO HONDA) =TANN(FREE OF CHARGE ITEM)

Here it indicates that u r giving the RAY BAN googles free to the customer on purchasing the HERO HONDA.

1. Usage specifies the usage of the line item of a particular sales documents.

And it is also one of the factor to determine the Item category group of a line Item.
