BP Relationship Category duplicate



I have a requirement where a duplicate Relationship category should be created for a BP Contact (BP in Contact Person - BP Role). A BP Contact sometimes is assigned dual roles in the company for the same active period/time.

For Example: BP 1 (MKK Role): CompanyXYZ

BP 2 (Contact Person Role): PersonABC.

PersonABC is a Contact Person for CompanyXYZ. The relationship for this PersonABC is created by assigning the Relationship Category 'Is Contact Person For' from 01/01/2013 to 05/01/2013. This PersonABC will have a Relationship Type (for ex.) Production Manager.

I need to create one more Relationship Category 'Is Contact Person For' from 01/01/2013 to 05/01/2013 for the same BP CompanyXYZ but assign a different Relationship Type (for ex.) Funding Manager.

In short I need to duplicate a relationship category for a Contact Person who plays a dual role in a company.

I tried to do this but SAP stops me with an error "This Relationship already exists". Anyone knows of any event to modify this part? or has come across this problem and knows solution? Please advice.
