Use of Vendor and Customer in 'Define Shipping Data for Storage Location"


Under the stock transfer order configuration, there is a IMG step <b>"Define Shipping Data for Storage Location".</b>

In this at storage location level, we can assign, sales org/distribution channel, division and VENDOR and CUSTOMER to storage location.

The customer number is used a sold-to-party in outbound deliveries.

<b>But I am not able to figure out what's the use of VENDOR number we are specifying in this step.</b>

If I am assiging the VENDOR Number here to every storage location, then when I am creating cross-company code Stock transport order, which vendor code I will select the one assigned to PLANT or one Assigned to Storage location.

<b>Also I need to know what vendor account group I will use for creating this storage location vendor.</b> I have more than one storage locations) under one plant. Soif I used account group as "0007" plant, SAP doesn't allow me to assigne one plant code to 2 vendors and in vendor master on 'additional purchasing data' screen I am not seeing storage location field, it has only 'PLANT' field.

<b>So I need to know-

1. Which account group to use for creating storage location vendor

2. What's the ultimaye use of this vendor code

3. What vendor # I will use while creating cross-company PO (one for plant or one for storage location.</b>
