    hi srinivas

    The account group is a classifying feature within customer master records.

    The account group determines

    1. In which number range the customer account number.

    2. whether the number is assigned by the user or by the system.

    3. which specifications are necessary or possible in the master record.

    for Ship to party, Bill to party, & payer new need to create separate account group or u can use standard account group.


    img->logistic general->business partner->customer->control->define account groups and field selection for customer.

    0001-sold to party.

    0002-ship to party


    0004- bill to party

    if you want you can use standard one or u can create own or copy the standard.

    you asked for ship to party

    Go to XD01 here select account group which u r using for ship to party , goto sales area-> sales tab

    enter customer group..

    same procedure for Payer & Bill to party.

    Afte that goto XD02

    enter sold to party number goto sales area-Partner function tab

    here assign ship to party , bill to party, and payer also. save it.


    if u dn't create ship to party, bill to party and payer account group ,the system will automatically take sold to party account group as be SH, PY, BP.

    please reward me

    if u have any doubt please reply i wil clarify

    You specify the customer group for sales data in the customer master

    ecord for each sales area.

    he SAP System copies this specification automatically into the sales

    ocuments at header and item level. Here, you will find the customer

    roup on the detail screen for general business data.


    . Specify an alphanumeric key which can have up to 2 characters and

    description for the customer groups.

    . Make sure that the customer groups are entered in the customer

    master records.

    <u><b>To Create Customer Groups</b></u>


    After defining you need to maintain Reserve Fields in Customer Master ( Whether Customer group1,2,3,4,or 5 )

    Hope this fixes your problem.

    Hi Srinivasa Rao,

    Customer Master Data consists of 3 data

    General Data

    Company Code Data,

    Sales Area Data irrespective of Partnet Functions (Sold to Party,Ship to Party, Payer, Bill to Party)

    While creating customers specific to that partner function, we get all the data.

    What we dont get are the different tabs available.

    The tabs differ for each partner function based upon the activity performed by the partner.

    Hope this adds information.

    Award points if it helps.
