    well u also have a customer feild in vendor maser record ..

    this plays a role in third party processing ..

    a sales order if vendor is fixed then the order having this customer number generates a PR --- PO wrt tht vendor.

    regards,

    hi

    IF the customer happens to be a vendor also then we need to maintain the vendor by specifying the a/c number in customer master data and vice versa in vendor master record

    it means there can be situations where a customer is also your vendor. so we identify such situations by marking him as a vendor in the customer amster data.

    Hi Sudhahar,

    In some cases, your vendor could also be a customer to you.So in your system you would have a vendor master record and a customer master record. Now in the customer master record you can enter the vendor no and have a link between them. eg) Tata Motors buying tryes from MRF for their cars and at the same time MRF buys cars from Tata Motors
