Hi,

<b>VBFA</b> Table gives the <b>Sales Document Flow</b>.

The Field <b>VBTYP_N</b> gives the <b>Document category of subsequent document</b>.

General Scenario:

suppose you want to buy a computer

1) You do Inquiry

2) You get N number of Quotation for that inquiry

3) you select 1 quotation for sales order or many for individual parts like CPU in

one quotation, monitor from one quotation and so on....

4) for all these sales order(s) you get delivery doc(s) and billing doc(s)

using VBFA we can get all the doc numbers related to sales senarios

If you take Inquiry doc all the Quotation doc(s),sales order doc(s) ........

will be preceding documents.

for sales order

Quotation doc(s),Inquiry are subceding.

billing docs(s) ,delivery doc(s) are preceding documents.

This is the consept of VBFA table.

Regards,

Padmam.

Hi,

the field VBTYP_N is an indicator field specifying what type is the subsequent

document of your preceeding document.

For example, you enetered a particular sales document in the VBELV field and

specified that your VBTYP_N has a value of 'J' which stands for a delivery document.

So what you are trying to do here is to get all delivery documents related to that

sales document. Other common values are 'M' for invoice, 'H' for returns, 'O' for

credit memo, etc.

The table VBFA is the document flow table. It gives the subsequent and preceeding

document of a given document.

Hope it helps...

P.S. Please award points if it helps...

Hi,

VBFA Table gives the Sales Document Flow.

The Field VBTYP_N gives the Document category of subsequent document.

The Field VBELV gives the Sales Document Number.

For example:

24208 is the sales Document number and check the value in the VBTYP_N.

if it is J then for that sales document DELIVERY is created,

if it is 8 then SHIPMENT is created,

if it is M then INVOICE is created,

if it is.... then ..... is created.withis this we can known the sades document flow.
