Output Determination in SAP

Output determination is a term which is used to get the print, fax or e-mail outputs for different documents in SAP. Output is carried out based on the conditions that you define in Customizing. You can define conditions for each output type and processing medium.

Configuration is same as Pricing in SAP, where you have Condition tables, Output Types, Access Sequence & Output determination procedures. This combination is commonly known as "Condition Technique in SAP". Please click here to view more details on the condition technique in SAP

  5. Hello sir,
    I have maintained all configuration as per your document above. However, i am not able to issue an output in va02 for output type BA00. I am getting an error "No output has been selected for printing". I have manually add output type at header level of a sales order. I have already maintained condition record in VV11. Please advise on this issue.
    Thank you,

    1. Please go into your sales order in the change mode (VA02). Then navigate to your output via menu path - Extras / Output / Header / Edit
      When you in there, please click on the menu - Go to / Determination Analysis.
      Now you should be able to see the output determination procedure that is assigned to your sales order type. Please locate the output type and from the drop down, select each access level to validate why your output was not triggered.
      Please keep in mind that, this analysis is only available in the change mode (VA02).
      Let us know what you found there.
