The above voucher categories are assigned as attributes to each purchase proof in the EKKO head data table (field: EKKO_BSTYP). This means that the document category allows us to distinguish delivery plans from other contracts. But how do you distinguish value contracts from volume contracts? This is where the storm table described above comes in: in the standard, the type of contract “MK” is for volume contracts and “WK” for value contracts. However, both types of documents have the same category of “K” document. While document categories are primarily used for categorization, document types are often used to customize, i.e. attributes are assigned to document types, which are then used to organize the process/control process in a system. You can also be in the EKKO table, the field name is EKKO_BSART. You can clearly display the category (K or L) and the type of document associated (LP, WK, MK). Our system includes 154 agreements.
The frame purchase contract is often called frame or umbrella order. This is essentially a long-term agreement between the purchasing service and the supplier for equipment or services for a defined period of time. The purchasing service negotiates with the creditor a number of conditions that are set for the duration of the contract. In value contracts, the quantity of items is often secondary, since the total value of the contract counts. For example, a “facility management” contract of 1,000,000 euros could be concluded with a supplier. This includes the three building cleaning, repair and disposal items. In this case, individual quantities can be attributed in a much less concrete way and an overall structure is more judicious. Another example would be office equipment (pens, post-it notebooks), too “singular” in individual articles to be punished in a framework agreement.
Contracts are often superior in nature. This may be the case with SAP® because the buying organization is essential (and the work that may be related to the purchase organization). The purchase organization is shown in the EKKO table for each agreement (field: EKKO_EKORG). However, in high-demand structures, large contracts (for example. B the purchase of laptops throughout the company) are negotiated centrally and can then be used in a decentralized manner.
