Possibility of business partner change in ODM documents


Hi Everybody,

due to an organizational change we are planning to combine two customer business partners into one.


Customer business partner A is assigned to location A

Customer business partner B is assigned to location B

Both business partners have a transportation lane with the same supplier.

Customer users are assigned either to business partner A or B.

We would like to achieve:

Customer business partner B is assigned to location A+B

Customer business partner A is not used anymore.

Customer users of business partner A are assigned to business partner B.

I know that the business partner can be easily changed within the location master data and the users can also be easily assigned to the business partner B. However we have already a lot of documents in the system for customer business partner A and with the change the user would not be able to look into the documents of customer A anymore. This means the customer users would lose the history of those documents (especialy the PO confirmations and ASNs).

So, does anybody know if it is possible to change the customer business partner within ODM documents (especially PO + ASN)? This would enable us to "move" the documents from customer business partner A to B and all history would be visisble for customer business partner B.

Best regards,
