Please help me out with purpose of a document type?
To have a track on business transaction
To control number range of the document
To control the account types that can involve
To control SOME field statuses of header data
To allow or disallow negetive postings
To control which exchange rate that the document currency has to take to be converted into local currency
It is not mandatory to have different different document types for all the transactions that happen in SAP. But to identify to have proper control, SAP has given us to have different document types and based on the document type, we can easily find it out that what kind of transaction that we made.
We can control Header data,number ranges,account types and etc controlled by document types. You will easily understand once you have good hands on basics.
