unnamed.pngHello Guru's

I have a strange and an urgent requirement from my client.

What he wants is that the document status fields such as BESTK, LFSTK, LFGSK for the sales documents like Quotation, Sales order, Delivery or billing should not be updated in the VBUK table.

Previously these field were no getting updated but due to some configuration change it has restarted updating.

Can anyone please guide me in fixing this.

Attaching a screenshot also.

Thanks in advance.

What exactly is a business requirement here? As mentioned in JP's answer, these are standard statuses and they're updated based on the actions performed with a document. Whys is this a problem?

Hi Jelena,

Thanks for the reply

This issue is related to a roll out project where in my client (USA) has a sister concern company(Germany) who is already using SAP.

They are now facing this issue of statuses getting updated which they dont want and as i am configuring for my client in the same system they say that there is some config change from my end due to which the statues have started getting updated.

So i dont know exactly why they want it this way but yes they need it.

I know this is not a standard SAP but now i dont have a choice as they have sent me previous and current screenshots of VBUK table.

It would be great help if i can get something convincing on this.

Regards

Bunty

We all know what you want, you repeated it several times already.

But the thing that you did not explain is this one "Previously these field were no getting updated but due to some configuration change it has restarted updating."

and "They are now facing this issue of statuses getting updated which they dont want and as i am configuring for my client in the same system they say that there is some config change from my end due to which the statues have started getting updated."

What was this configuration change? If you did the configuration yourself then you should be able to tell what changes you did.

And undoing this change would actually get you back to the old situation, isn't it?

Hello Jurgen,

Thanks for the Reply.

I have asked the client regarding the issues they are facing due to the config change.

Once i get a reply will post it here.

The changes which i did are related to the item category in the for the quotation and sales order.

I tried reverting the changes but no affect.

Frankly, for me, this is a very strange request.
This status table controlled by std program.
Making any changes (enhancement) to it is not recommended.
As this will impacting std functionality associated to this.

VBUK-BESTK is related to sales order confirmation and this driven through VBUP-BESTA.
FYI, as per std, if your sales order is either having a subsequent delivery doc or item is not relevant for delivery.
Then this field will not have any value.
That if I have sales order with a deliverable item and that is not confirmed, then VBUK-BESTK = A.
Further, if the same item is confirmed, then it will be C.
Once you have created a delivery doc for that sales item, then VBUK-BESTK will automatically be changed to <Blank>.
Thus, this field will be blank for Delivery, Invoice and Quotation, provided you are trying or pushing the system to confirm quantities on those docs.

Similarly, VBUK-LFSTK & VBUK-LFGSK with is related to delivery status.
If you sales doc with an item that needs to deliver.
Means you have an item in sales order with VBAP-LFREL(or Item Category TVAP-LFREL).
Then this gets updated for both Header Status(VBUK-LFSTK & VBUK-LFGSK) and Item Status(VBUP-LFSTA & VBUP-LFGSA).
Obviously, this will not get updated for quotation.
Provide someone is playing around with Item Categories related to quotation.

I would suggest you to check and revalidate the config of the item category involved where you see these discrepancies.

Thanks, JP

Hi JP,

Thanks for your answer, I tried all the changes and checked by changing the item category configuration. I created a SO and did the PGI.

BESTK =Blank, LFSTK = C, LFGSK =C. Whereas i need all of them blank.

Please suggest how i can get it blank.

Again Thanks for ur time and help.

Please use "Comment on this answer" to reply to an existing answer. If you post a new answer then (1) the person you're replying to does not get notified of it; (2) it is misleading to others viewing the question because it does not actually answer it.

JP already explained how statuses work. You can't PGI a sales order, so I'm guessing there was a delivery created for the order. In such case the delivery status will be updated to C. You can't create a delivery for a relevant item and expect the delivery status to be blank. This just wouldn't make any sense.

Hello Bunty,

If PGI is done, which means obviously the Item is relevant for Delivery and the required status is reflected in System Tables. As already explained, it will not make sense in system if something is relevant for Delivery and necessary status is not set and tracked.

You have mentioned in your first post - previously these fields were not getting updated, but after some change it as restarted... If this is the case, none of us here can help since we would not know what was the previous and existing setting in your system.

However the bottonline, if some Item is relevant for Delivery or for that matter Billing the necessary status would be set and tracked. This is SAP Standard and should not be changed.

Thanks,

Hi Siva prasad,

I know that these are the statuses that need to be updated with completion of every stage of sales process i.e Quotation Sales order and delivery.

I created a SO and did the PGI.

In the VBUK status update table which is the standard behaviour of VBUK following is the status.

BESTK =Blank, LFSTK = C, LFGSK =C.

Whereas i need all of them blank. Can u please suggest me a solution on this.

Bunty.

You have already been asked not to add your text under Answer but you ignored that and keep adding under "Answer". Whenever you wanted to add some text to your original query, do so under "Comment" and not under "Answer" as you were not answering to a query but only sharing additional information. Meanwhile, I have converted your above two posts from Answer to Comment.
