2.1 Creating a sales order

We will now create a sales order in the SD module of the SAP system using transaction VA01. To do this, enter a sales document type and a sales area and confirm your entries. In SD, a sales area always consists of three organizational characteristics: the sales organization, distribution channel, and division. In our example system, we use sales document type (Order Type field) TA and sales organization ET15, distribution channel 01, and division 00 (see Figure 2.1).


Figure 2.1: Initial screen for creating a sales order

For our customer K1, we enter an order in which the customer has ordered one piece of our sales product FERT1. Figure 2.2 shows an overview with the relevant details.

In the top right-hand corner you can see the net value of EUR 6000. Where did the system get this value from? On the Conditions tab for the order item (see Figure 2.3) we can find further information about how this net value is calculated.
