SAP version used in this post: SAP ERP Central Component (ECC) 5.0

If you don’t know what a Sales Document Type is, you may want to start [here]{/a/37) first.

Order Types represent business scenarios and are mostly selected by the user when creating the sales document.

Sales Document types are configured at: IMG: Sales and Distribution > Sales > Sales Documents > Sales Document Header > Define Sales Document Types – transaction VOV8

  1. This list differs between SAP versions.
  2. As a guide, the most common document types are marked with ‘**********’
  3. A company will only use a few of above depending on requirements.
  4. Mostly copies are made of those types being used and not the SAP standard. For example copy Order Type OR to ZOR. This way one can make changes to ZOR while still keeping the original configuration of the basic order types.
