SAP TM: Business Partner not determined automatically

803 Views Last edit Oct 24, 2021 at 07:10 PM 2 rev

Dear all,

I was creating an Organizational Structure and I came across an issue wherein while creating an Organization Unit, under the Org. Data, Tab, I see only Org.ID created automatically and not the business Partner. However, I would like to have the BP also created automatically.

Although I came across the below description, I did not get how exactly I can configure it to get the BP number assigned automatically here.

"When an organizational unit is created, the system automatically creates a business partner in the background. This business partner is used in transactional documents to represent the assigned organizational unit. For that purpose, you need to configure the internal number assignment in the Customizing for SAP TM by following the menu path Cross-Application Components • SAP Business Partner • Business Partner • Basic Settings • Number Ranges and Groupings."

I did understand how the above settings can be used while creating a Business Partner, I am trying to understand how can I use the above settings while creating an Organizational structure so that I can get BP no generated automatically for an Organizational Unit. Please refer the image for more info.automatic-bp-number-assignment.jpg

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards
