Before you start

Follow these steps

  1. Start 'Maintenance Customer Orders. Open Line' (COS101/B).

    This panel is reached in one of these ways:

    • Use panel sequence XXX1 when you specify the MCO header (recommended method).
    • Select the MCO header in (COS280) or (COS100) and select related option 11='MCO Lines'.
  2. Select the appropriate registration alternative. Use F13 to open the change panel.

    The valid alternatives are 1-'Detailed entry' for each order line and 2-'Fast entry' where the detail panels are only displayed when something goes wrong.

  3. Set an appropriate panel sequence. Press Enter to save and return to the B panel.

    This instruction is based on panel sequence EF.

  4. Select line type '1' for a material sales order. Specify a value in the 'Service' field, the item number in the 'Product' field, a lot number (if it is known) and a quantity. Press Enter to display the E panel.

    You can also specify the alias number of the item or the customer's item number. Note, that the item number in (MMS001) is retrieved automatically during entry and used on the picking list and other internal documents.

  5. Verify that the defaulted price on the E panel is correct. Press Enter to display the F panel.

    The sales price is proposed from the item file (MMS001). You can change the sales price manually in the 'Price in agreement currency' field.

  6. On the F panel, specify a requested delivery date (optional). Press Enter to finish and return to the B panel.

    There are some useful related options in (COS101) for material sales management. The available options are:

    • 38='Availability Check'. This option displays 'Material Plan. Check Shortages - ATP' (MMS165), where you can verify that you have the item to be sold.
    • 43='Avail all whs'. This option displays 'Availability. Display All Warehouses' (MMS081).
    • 41='Req/Distr Order'. This option takes you to the correct order provided that the MCO line has reached status '30'.
    • 42='Material Plan'. This option displays 'Material Plan. Open' (MMS080), where all planned future transactions are displayed.
  7. Press F3 to exit and generate the order.

    The order is generated as soon as you exit (COS101). You can press F12 and return to (COS100/X) if you use an appropriate panel sequence when you register MCOs.

    MCO lines for sales are raised to status '30' when the order is generated. This status indicates that a requisition is created in (MMS100).
