One of my duties at work is managing shipping printouts, such as labels and delivery notes. And, a common task that I have had lately is printing out test labels or performing reprints, so I decided to write a post about the procedure I have been using in SAP to accomplish this.

First, I use the transaction SE16 (SAP data browser) to view the table NAST. I believe that the table NAST simply contains the output from messages. On the selection screen I enter the Application (KAPPL), which for me is normally either V2 (shipping) or V6 (handling units). Next, I select the Message Type (KSCHL), which is normally something like ZLnn. Then I am shown data that fits that criteria. The third column (OBJKY) on the entries screen shows delivery numbers (for V2 types) that have messages meeting my criteria. So, I copy one of the latest delivery numbers for the desired message type.

Next, I go to transaction VL71 (for V2 messages - it would be VL74 for V6 messages), which is to display output from deliveries. I use the default sort order of 01, enter 2 (repeat processing) for the processing mode, and then paste the delivery number from the previous step into the delivery box. F8 executes the transaction and gives me a list of message type. I check the message that I want to reprint and hit SHIFT-F5 (Edit - Print Default) to select the printer. Hit SHIFT-F2 or click the execute button, and the prints will be sent. I could also use the print preview button to save paper, but bar codes do not render properly in the preview.

By the way, you can also reprint messages from application ME (Inventory management) using transaction MB90 (Output from Goods Movement).
