Q – This question is regarding item usage.
I know that item usage is one of the determinants of item category at transactional level, but wonder how the system is picking up this value. I know that item usage can be defined in IMG and further used in determination settings for item category. My doubt is how system is determining the value of item usage at transactional level (for example while creating quotation or order).
A – The item determination based upon item usage can be proposed in sales document processing either by the Customer Material Information Record (VD51) or by ABAP code, based upon specific process or material characteristics. An example of the determination of the item usage is often found in Includes such as – FV45PFAP_VBAP_FUELLEN.
