SAP VKM3 to Release Sales Order from Credit Block

SAP VKM3 transaction is used to release blocked documents due to credit block. SAP sales order documents blocked due to credit control can be released using VKM3. In this SAP tutorial, I'll try to share how to release blocked sales orders in VKM3 transaction screen.

VKM3 SAP Transaction

First of all, call SAP transaction VKM3

SAP transaction VKM3

Enter the SAP sales order document number in the SD document info selection area where the SAP user wants to release credit block.

use SAP VKM3 tcode to release credit block on sales order

A list of sales orders fetched according to the filter criteria is shown under SD Documents table. On the right side of the SD Documents list there is a field named "Overall CreditStatus" which shows the "Overall status of credit checks" Since the report lists all sales orders without controlling if there is a credit block or not, you can use this area to distinguish blocked sales orders due to credit check from others.

Overall status of credit checks field value is read from the ABAP VBUK table CMGST field.
ABAP VBUK table is "Sales Document: Header Status and Administrative Data" table where sales order header status are stored in SAP. ABAP programmers can query VBUK database table to find credit blocked sales orders.

Value range for CMGST field is as follows:
" " => Credit check was not executed/Status not set
"A" => Credit check was executed, document OK
"B" => Credit check was executed, document not OK
"C" => Credit check was executed, document not OK, partial release
"D" => Document released by credit representative
