    For Inter/Intra Company STOs each <b>Supplying plant</b> is defined as <b>Vendor</b> to <b>Receiving Plant</b> and each <b>Receiving Plant</b> is defined as <b>Customer</b> (<i>Sold To Party</i>) to <b>Supplying Plant</b>.

    Customer Number (abcd0001) is assigned to Receiving Plant (abcd) in OMGN-->Plant to link Plant abcd to its Avatar (Plant Customer abcd0001).

    Hi,

    We have to maintain different customer no to each recieving plants. That means each recieving plant will have unique customer no which is created in other plants.

    This will inturn recognizes shipping data while creating PO.

      Hi,

      Just to add to the other good replies.

      SAP will treat this as a sale from one company to the other company and so it needs a vendor master record and customer master record to achieve this correctly. By assigning a Vendor master to the issuing plant and a customer master to the receiving plant the correct postings and audit can be maintained.
