Creating a Variant Item
If there is a configuration that you can reuse but no variant item has been created from it, you can create a variant item by clicking the Create Variant icon next to the Configuration ID. Then the system returns the newly created variant item number to the Sales Order Maintenance or Sales Quote Maintenance order line.
The system creates variant items only from completed configurations (status F). For incomplete configurations with a status of O, complete them first before item creation.
