|Did not realize that
SAP does not provide a standard transaction code to mass print sales order
until there was a request from one of our company user.
Is there a transaction for the
collective printing of outputs from orders (such as VF31 for "Output from
Billing" or VL71 for "Output from Deliveries")?
No, there is no such transaction
in the standard system.
However, the following alternative
is available: The relevant transactions for outputs from sales
process documents are always based on the report
and so on
Such a report also exists for outputs
from orders: SD70AV1A.
You can either directly execute this report or assign it to a customer-specific
Execute Mass Print of Sales
(you can also assign a Z tcode for your user if they need this to use this
mass sales order print program)
1 – choose this if the output
had never been printed before
2 – if output printed before
– you can make use of this table to copy and paste the list of sales orders
that you wish to print or ask the user to provide you with the list.
Why does the system not issue
outputs in the expected sequence when sales documents are collectively
This is the standard system behavior.
In Sales and Distribution, the outputs
in a document are repeatedly sorted in internal tables during output determination
and output processing.
The sequence of the outputs in the
output determination procedure does not have any influence on the sequence
of the outputs during printing.
The system ignores the sequence in
which the outputs were inserted into a document.
The system does not automatically sort
according to customers when it issues outputs.
Use the sort criteria of the relevant
transaction (for example, VF31) or the sort criteria of the relevant report
(for example, RSNAST00) for issuing outputs.
Can you use further sort criteria
in addition to those proposed in the "Sort order" field for printouts from
sales and distribution documents (for example, transaction VF31 or VL71)?
Yes, the following options are available
1. In Customizing of the output
type, you can specify up to three additional sort fields from the relevant
print structure (print structure KOMKBV1 for application V1, KOMKBV2 for
application V2 and so on).
You can then use these fields as
"Sort fields 1-3" using sort criterion 04 and 05.
2. If this is not sufficient, you
can use the user exit RSNASTZZ to sort the outputs for specific customers
when you are working with the report RSNAST00.
