Regarding Automatic Sales order item category determination

Hi experts,

I have a doubt regarding the automatic sales order item category determination.

My Scenario is like this: I am having 1 co code, 1 sales area, 1 material (fert type), 2 plants.

plant 1 item category group is given as NORM ( standard item) and in plant 2 same material's item category group is given as BANS (3rd party). i have done the req things in VOV4 - item catg assignments for both the plants accordingly.

My Requirment is that when i am creating a normal sales order (OR) using plant 1 sales item catg should automatically be determined as TAN( std) and when i am creating SO using plant 2 sales item catg should automatically be determined as TAS( 3rd party).

I know something like this can be done using 2 sales organisations but can i achieve the desired results using only 1 sales org? Is it possible in standard SAP system?

Thanks in advance.

item cat is determined based on

sales doc type

item cat group


higher level item cat

so in no case the plant will be the deciding parameter.

so in ur case it is only sales doc type which can help, if u r not maintaining the cust mat info record (otherwise usage could have helped).
