Managing Internal Sales Delivery Address Information

The final delivery address on Purchase Order (PO) header and line will be assigned as the delivery address in the Customer Order (CO) batch entry as an order unique delivery address. In addition, the ship-via address identity of the PO header and line will be assigned as the ship-via on the CO's order unique delivery address.

The CO header's unique delivery address is either given an identity (#xxxx, where x is a number) identity or is left as blank, as controlled via the CO type setting 'Create address' in 'CO Type. Open' (OIS010). The CO line will inherit this address unless the PO sends in a unique line address.

The CO line's unique delivery address is given the identity * in combination with the order line number. If the same delivery address is received for several order line, then the * identity will be re-used for additional order line. This is to ensure that the order lines are consolidated into the same delivery.

For manual change of the ship-via address on an internal PO, a new ship-via address identity must be selected. Upon prompting on the 'Ship-via' field, the program 'Via Address. Open' (CRS300) is displayed for the user to select a new ship-via address identity. For an internal purchase order it is prevented to manually change the individual address lines of the ship-via address, as the internal customer order cannot accept the actual ship-via address lines but only a predefined ship-via identity.

The table outlines the default values for the internal customer order's delivery address information at time of internal CO creation.

Ship via The field value is set based on the PO order header and line.
Rail station (RASN) The field value is left blank. Not supported for internal sales, since there is nothing that says that this field would always be the same for the PO and CO. The field is intended to be used for calculation of transport cost. Therefore it is most likely to be set on the "side" that is responsible for the transportation cost and be left blank on the other "side". Another argument for the design is that the field is not printed on the PO document, which means that is is not a field that is "sent" to an external supplier either.
