Partner Functions

Hi MM Gurus,

1. When creating partner functions, is it possible to create a partner function without a partner type?

2. And, is it possible to create your own partner types?

Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

Regards,

Thulani

    Hi Nyamane,

    I dont thing by the time of creating Partner function,creat a partner types.

    For parter fun:

    There are just 4 mandatory steps:

    1: Define partner role

    2: Define permisssable partner roles per account group

    3: Define Partner Schemas

    4: Assign Partner Schemas to Account Groups

    You have setup your partner determination on purchasing org level.

    But you forgot that you create a purchase order on plant level, which is a lower (more detailed) level. If the higher level box is left blank in your partner determination setup, then SAP tries to find partner on plant level. As you don't have partner on plant level maintained in your vendor, SAP can't find the vendor.

    IMG > Materials Management > Purchasing > Partner determination > Partner Settings in Purchasing Documents > Define Partner Schemas

    select your partner schema and then double click Partner roles in schema on the left.

    In the appearing screen you can see the colomn for higher level

    Then create a fresh PO and check.

    Go through the below link:
