RE:[sap-log-sd] How to Ensure Nondeliverable Lines on a Sales Order go to the same Billing Document?

Hi Typewriter and Surender Gupta,

Thank you for your interest!

The background is that there will be a sales BOM which will explode into 2 children which are both virtual items. One is software (downloaded) and one is service. No delivery is required. I need the 2 children to copy to the billing document along with the parent, because each child will carry a price and we will design the invoice to print only the parent material# along with the summed price of the children. The customers should only know the total price and they order using the parent material#, but internally we need to have 2 children because we need the revenue to go to different profit centers. (internal accounting ugh!)

I imagine I could create a copy rule for these 2 item categories we will be creating. However it will be rather tricky because I don't really know if I want to copy over the parent unless I also check if the children (all the children) will copy over and visa versa. So I don't know that this can really be done easily in the line item copy rules area. Things which might prevent any of the items from copying would be a billing block or an incomplete item.

I think I may have to do something in a user exit at billing save. Where if the entire group is not copied over then I may need to delete any of the lines that were "almost" copied over from the billing doc before it is saved.

Any other thoughts on this?

Thank you!

Do you know of a way to force more than one line on a sales order to go to billing at the same time (same billing).
In this case the lines are not delivery relevant and they will be related thru higher level item# ( part of the same sales BOM). I am looking for something other than a billing block on each line to make this happen.

It seems that it would be similar to the way delivery group ensures that all lines on a sales order in the same delivery group go to the same delivery... a kind of billing group concept.

Any ideas?
