SAP Sales and Distribution (SAP SD) module works based on tables and saves data in them. In this tutorial, we will describe SAP SD tables and links between them. SAP SD tables are essential storage for business data related to sales and distribution functions of SAP ERP software.
We broke down SD tables into three parts:
These are the building blocks of SD module and it is very logical to discuss tables according to this breakdown. Please observe on the slides how the table from different blocks are connected with each other. It is crucial to understand these relations for being an expert of SAP SD.
The first block is related to sales processes in SAP SD. It means that SAP SD tables in this block will be related to sales order, quotations, and so on. We created a visual slide that mentions all the tables and relationships between them.
The next block is related to shipping processes of SAP SD. SAP SD tables in this block are related to inbound and outbound deliveries and also shipments. Similarly, we’ve prepared a visual slide with links that illustrate relationships between tables.
The last but not the least is the billing function of SAP SD. There is a number of tables that are used in SAP for supporting billing processes in a company. SAP saves billing documents in these tables as well as various associated data such as for example output conditions. Below is a slide with SAP SD tables related to billing and links between them.
For your convenience, we provide PDF versions of the above slides. You are welcome to print them and for your reference.
Finally, we’ve prepared a short video with hands-on demonstration of working with these tables in an SAP ERP system. The video will teach you how view tables using the transaction code SE16. This skill is very useful for SAP consultants because it is often much quicker to see the data directly from a table rather than using standard transactions for business users. Also, in the video we will show SE11 transaction and how it can be used to explore relationships between tables as well as technical parameters of the tables.
