In this video you'll learn how to create a substitution rule in which an origin group field is populated with a document type value for selected document types. The origin group field is not available for substitution in the standard SAP system. You must read the SAP Notes 42615 and 842318 for additional information. Once you fully understand the implication of such modification and make sure there is no overlap with other system flows that use origin groups, you can proceed with this modification.
