Number identifying a promotion for which procurement is to take place.


For each item of a purchasing document, you can specify the promotion to which the item belongs.

Depending on your system settings, special prices and conditions that are maintained in the IS-R system (Retail) for this promotion are applied when a promotion number is entered.

This field also allows you to create purchasing documents on a selective basis for a certain promotion. For example, you can create a purchase order containing only those items that are to be procured for one promotion.

Supplementary Documentation - WAKTION 0001





Depending on the promotion type, you can enter a promotion or have the system assign a number automatically. You make the setting for 'internal' or 'external' number assignment in Customizing.
