New Fields in Customer Master

Hi All,

I have a requiremnet to add new fields in the customer master Under sales area,

1- Carrier

2- Carrier Act info

We require the above fields need to be updated in the sales order Partner Tab as Carrier name as Name as shown in the Picture Under the NAME

Next will be Carrier Acct Info Under the PARTNER at the time of Sales Order creation and should always have a Option to Override it. How feasible is this? if so please share the detail step included in it.

Creating a Carrier with Account Group will not help me , since Clinet do not want to have the carrier for every sales order.SAP system connected with many interfaces and EDI as well.

Any additional Questions Pls Ask.

    If you want to update something under Partners tab, you should have appropriate master data with appropriate partner type.

    In SAP, Partner types are:

    AWork centerAPContact PersonsKUCustomerLIVendorLSLogical systemMAMail AddressMPMail PartnerOOrganizational UnitPEPersonnel NumberSPositionUSUserVSShipping PointWKPlant

    Unless, you have defined some Master data with above mentioned partner types, you can't have those values in Partner tab of Sales order.

    Instead, add Custom fields in Customer master as well as all other required transactions using Screen Enhancement & copy those details through development.

    • Hello Soft,

      The ideal and best way to have Carrier info in your Sales Doucment is via Partner Functions.

      Agree that you do not need Carrier in all the Sales Order, which means that you need not assign Carrier to all the Customers. Keep the Carrier partner function as optional in Customer Master and Sales Order.

      Adding two new fields and filling them via a development does not seem to be a good option. Also in future you can easyly create reports based on Carrier if it is present as a partner function.

    Jignesh has posted some good points!

    From your post, the below points can be understood -

    1. Carrier information should not be mandatory in every sales order. This can be handled with configuration of partner procedure assigned to the sales document type (or item category).

    2. Account group 0005 is already created for Freight forwarders. Can you use this?


    This requirement looks like it can be handled by partner determination functionality with standard SAP.
