    Hi Sarika

    The field ZTERM refers to payment terms.

    This can be defined at 
      1. Company Code Level i.e KNB1.
      2. At Sales Area Level i.e KNVV.

    For a customer the terms can be different for each sales area.

    To check the same, 
      1. Go to transaction XD03.
      2. Give the company code and Sales Area
      3. Use menupath: Goto->Company Code Data
      4. Now select tab Payment Transactions. 
         The field Terms of payment here refer to KNB1.
      5. Now use menupath: Goto-> Sales Area Data
      6. Select tab: Billing Document.
         The field Termns of payment here refer to KNVV.

    Kind Regards

    Hi,

    zterm refers to payment term .

    knvv customers are grouped by sales area(sales

    organizationdivisiondistribution channel)

    knb1 ->customer are grouped by company code

    DE ZTERM

    Short text

    Terms of payment key

    Definition

    payment periods.

    Use

    It is used in sales orders, purchase orders, and invoices. Terms of

    payment provide information for:

    o Cash management

    o Dunning procedures

    o Payment transactions

    Data can be entered in the field for the terms of payment key in various

    o In most business transactions, the system defaults the key specified

    in the master record of the customer/vendor in question.

    o In some transactions (for example, credit memos), however, the system

    does not default the key from the master record. Despite this, you can

    use the key from the customer/vendor master record by entering "*" in

    the field.

    o Regardless of whether or not a key is defaulted from the master

    record, you can manually enter a key during document entry at:

    - item level in sales orders

    - header level in purchase orders and invoices

    e

    Master records have separate areas for Financial Accounting, Sales, and

    Purchasing. You can specify different terms of payment keys in each of

    these areas. When you then enter a business transaction, the application

    inquestion will use the key specified in its area of the master record.

    Regards

    Please refer to the answers in your similar post in SAP Solution.

    Adding on the above posts..KNVV stores the customer data at sales area level and hence for the same customer being via different sales org/distribution channel/division can have different payment terms as compared to company level parameter.

    In our system we use the dc as exports/domestic or intercompany ..and it is possible to have different zterm for them.
