SAP Orders - Contract Issue

Hi Team,

The issue is that we are needing to set up contracts to make multiple releases to sales orders.  Any time that anyone is creating a sales order from a contract, or is in change mode in any of the sales orders created with reference to the contract, it ties up all of the sales orders connected to the contract.

For example, Contract # 0040009907 was set up in SAP, and 92 separate sales orders were created with reference to this contract number.  Each time that anyone was in any of those 92 sales orders – either creating a new order from the contract, making changes to a sales order, performing credit approval, releasing from GTS Block, releasing delivery lines, performing staging processes of the items on the order, or in any other way further processing the order – all 92 related sales orders are locked so that nobody can in any way further process any of the orders, thereby allowing only one order at a time to be worked on in any way.  This slows down the process incredibly, as we need to have multiple orders processed in parallel at any given time for each of the processes as described above.

Kindly provide the solution.

Kind Regards,



Hi Veselina Peykova,

Thank you so much for your help...

Finally I found the solution.

Changed field:

pos./neg. quantity field as ‘+’  instead of blank in the copy control  to Order type.

Kind Regards,
