Split occur due to the deviating partners
All partners which stand in the partner schema of the delivery and that are copied from the preceding document or that are determined from the customer master record of the goods recipient are lead to the delivery split. The only mandatory partner of the outbound delivery is the goods recipient. If, for example, no statistical data is affected, you can delete the sold-to party from the partner schema for deliveries with order reference and it is then no splitting criterion anymore. The following may lead to a split in the delivery:
- Different partner numbers for the same partner function.
- Deviating addresses of the partners even if the partner number is the same. Here, only the address number is crucial for the split; the address list parts are not checked.
The forwarding agent as an additional partner in one of the sales orders involved. In contrast, additional partners with other roles do not lead to the split in the standard.
Split occur via the copy control
Through the copy control, the data is copied from the preceding document to the header of the delivery and therefore acts as delivery split. Two routines are relevant for the data transfer for outbound deliveries with order reference in the standard:
- FORM routine DATEN_KOPIEREN_001 (include FV50C001) for the transfer of the data from header (CVBAK) and item (CVBAP) of the sales order.
- FORM routine DATEN_KOPIEREN_002 (include FV50C002) for the transfer of the data from the business data of the sales order.
With all other outbound delivery types as well as with inbound deliveries, the data transfer is carried out via FORM routine DATEN_KOPIEREN_301 (include FV50C301) or DATEN_KOPIEREN_201 (include FV50C201).
In the table with delivery header data LIKP, there is field ZUKRL which can be filled with any values via the copying control. The contents of this field act as splitting criteria for the delivery creation so that you can use it in order to force a delivery split according to your own specifications. Apart from that, the field does not have any business or technical importance and can be delivered via both of the routines mentioned above.
