Dear colleagues,

I got requirement to define credit limits for customers depending on distribution channel but all must be within one credit control area. Is it possible to set up system in that manner?

    Harry, I think you can use the credit check userexit if your credit limit has a simple pattern to follow among different distribution channels. otherwise It is a dumb but doable idea to create two customer records for each customer that have this need and assign different credit limits.

    a not so dumb answer would be a bunch of questions to the clients. why differentiate limits per distribution channel, why not create multiple credit control areas?

    • Hello Harry,

      You requirement is interesting but not uncommon. Many customer have such requirements.

      I go with the sugestion above. You will have to create seperate Credit Control Areas for this requirement.

      If it is to be done with single Credit Control Organization, Z-Enhancement is only option.

    Hi Harry ,

    You have to go for enhancement to meet the requirement. Create a Z table where you maintain the Credit Limit respective to Distribution channel. So whenever the credit check triggers, system should refer the Z table for validation of Credit Limit rather than Credit Master value in KNKK table.

    With Regards
