customer group 1-5 in additional data A tab

Hi,

I need to use some of the customer group fields to maintain some other data. I want to know the impact of using these fields.

Are these fields being used anywhere else?

Thanks

Keshi

    Hi

    Customer group

    Identifies a particular group of customers (for example, wholesale or retail) for the purpose of pricing or generating statistics.

    Use

    You can freely define customer groups according to the needs of your organization. You assign a customer group to an individual customer in either the customer master record of the sold-to party or in the sales document. In SD Customizing, you can create a condition type that lets you create pricing records for customer groups. Additionally, when you want to generate sales statistics, you can use customer groups as one of the selection criteria.

    Procedure

    The system can propose a value from the customer master record. You can change the value manually in the document.

    Hi Keshini,

    The customer group fields in customer master is purely for reporting purpose. Standard SAP given one customer group field in Sales tab page of sales area tab. Apart from this there are other 5 fields in the Additional data tab. These are only for reporting purpose.

    These are freely definable. you can define these in IMG-SD-Master data-business partner-Customers-Sales-Maintain Reserve Fields in customer master. Here you can define customer group fields in Additional data tab.

    Apart from these we can also have Freely definable Attributes for Contact person. we can define upto 10 attributes.

    hope this will help you

    Hi Keshini,

    The data maintained in the Customer master > EXTRAS>Additional Data is copied in the Sales order. You can very well use the same as per your requirement. The use of this field is for reporting purpose.

    The standard use of the Customer groups is -

    You can define up to five different groups of customers, according to the needs of your organization. You specify the groups in the customer master record under "Additional data". If you assign a particular

    customer to one or more groups, the system automatically displays the

    groups in the header data of corresponding sales orders.

    Hope the above info helps you.

    REWARD!!

    Regards,

    Ajinkya

    Dear Keshi,

    You can very well use the customer group fields 1 - 5 in the additional tab. But more appropriate would be to use the freely definable attributes 1 - 10. For this go to the general data and click the additional data in the Extras.

    Thanks,

    Balaji
