How to set a default variant to a Transaction VL06O

The initial selection screen you get for the transaction VL06O has 8 button options. Requirement is to appear only 4 buttons as soon as the transaction is being called. This can be handled by variants functionality in SAP.
If you set a custom variant (Z), user will see all 8 buttons when he logged in to the transaction code. Then user has to select the relevant Z variant from the variant selection button. A default variant for a transaction code is not possible with custom variants (Z). If you want to apply a default variant for a transaction, you have to save that variant as a system variant.

How to allow multiple division materials in one sales order

We use division field in material master to differentiate materials in to different categories. For example, in apparel and footwear industry, we use divisions as Apparel, Footwear, Accessories, etc. All apparel articles are created with the division "Apparel", Footwear articles are created with the division "Footwear" and accessories are created with division "Accessories".

Reversal of F110 Payments

Payment batch processing is one of the core functionalities in a finance department which is handled through SAP.  Usually a single batch would consist of hundreds of individual payments to difference vendors and there could be user errors regarding the date of the payment, configuration errors that could pick up the wrong house bank or there could not be sufficient funds in the selected bank, or even the users could have used an incorrect payment method to pay the vendors. All of these are common issues where reversal of payment batches are required.
The traditional reversal process is time consuming and each document has to be identified and processed individually.
However to address this issue a new program RFF110S_REVERSE has been introduced by SAP. This program has been made available as of February 2015 as note for all releases prior to release 6.7 and is delivered in the support package as of release 6.7.
