    Different partner functions are required because everytime the same sold to party will not be the Bill to, Ship to and payer.As functions will be different so different partners are also differ based on their functions.Reward if useful.

    hi

    different partner function must be there otherwise busines wiill not run successfullly. why becouse ex sold to party place the order in Mubai the goods has to reach hyderabad, chennai, why becouse the sold to party has branch offices in hyderabd,chennai so in hyd,chennai, employes will be there to take that goods .these employees are calld ship to parties.and company otharities will pay the bill so they are bill to paties, the aaccount person will receive the bill to enter this amount in g/l acoounts this person is called bill to party .like wise so the sold to party cannot do all things some times.

    if it is really help full reward

    Different Partner function represent different role & responsibility of that partner function. For Eg:

    <b>Sold to Party</b> - refers to the party ordering for goods / services.

    <b>Ship to Party</b> - refers to the destination where the material is to be shipped. For Eg there is a sold to party ABC situated at Mumbai, which has plants at Pune, Bangalore, Delhi. In this case, Pune, Bangalore & Delhi can be created as Ship to Party where physically material will be received.

    <b>Bill to Party</b> - refers to the party to whom the Bill is to be sent. Taking the above example ahead, say Head office of ABC is in Kolkatta & all bills are to to be send to Head office as a policy.

    <b>Payer</b> - refers to the party who does the payment

    <b>Sales Employee</b> - refers to the Sales Rep responsible for the deal

    & so on .........................

    Hope this gives a better idea about partner function

    Hi,

    <b>PARTNER FUNCTIONS:</b>

    SP-sold to party,

    SH- ship to party

    BP-bill to party,

    PY-payer.

    These are the 4 basic partner functions. More partner functions can be created as and when the need arises. For eg: CF-commission agent, NF- notifying party, SE -sales employee

    If the ordering party, ship to party , billing party and paying authority are the same then we create an account group with all 4 partner functions assigned to them.

    But in some cases the shipping address is different, bill to party and payer are different. In such caes you have to create 4 account groups with each partner function assigned to them. Then crete the individual customers and then in XD02, assign the ship to party, bill to party and payer to the sold to party.

    <b>ONE TIME ACCOUNT GROUP:</b>

    An account on which the transaction figures are recorded for a group of customers or vendors that you only conduct business once, or rarely.

    One-time accounts require a special master record.

    Certain customer or vendor data (such as address and bank details) is not entered in the master record, but in the actual document.

    Reward points if solution helps.
