As you are aware that we do not enter business area in purchase order.

Business area triggers at the time of goods receipt.

How your business area has been designed. Is it per plant ?

But the problem is , that it is not one to one assignment, There are several plants to one business area, so the question is now, how can distinguish it?



Then you need to restrict it by using BADI .

Hi Mark

Business are are generally related to plant or valuation area.

Both revenue accounting in Financial Accounting and value postings for goods movements in Inventory Accounting can be represented separately for each business area.

In SPRO, you define the rules according to which the SAP System should determine the business area automatically. You define it using OMJ7 Tcode

"It is mainly for the purpose of accounting "The SAP System then finds the corresponding business area for account assignment using plant and item division in the case of revenue postings"

Follow the SPRO path below and also read more on the documentation for that
