    Hi Aruna Kumar

    There are reserve fields in the customer master record which are not used in the standard system. They are available for use and are as follows:

    ==> Customer group 1 (View: V_TVV1 Field:KVGR1)

    ==> Customer group 2 (View: V_TVV2 Field:KVGR2)

    ==> Customer group 3 (View: V_TVV3 Field:KVGR3)

    ==> Customer group 4 (View: V_TVV4 Field:KVGR4)

    ==> Customer group 5 (View: V_TVV5 Field:KVGR5)

    You can find the fields in the customer master record under the sales and distribution data in Sales. Choose additional data under Environment.

    It is advisable to change the field description (Data elements KVGR1 to KVGR5).

    This is described in the system modifications in the Reserve fields unit of the customer master record:

    <b>Reserve Fields in Customer Master</b>

    The customer master includes reserve fields that are not assigned to any particular function. You can assign value to these fields and use them. To maintain the fields, select "Environment -> Additional data" on a customer master maintenance screen. The general data and the sales area data contain different fields:

    1. Ten fields were included in table KNA1 (general part of customer master record):

    Five two-digit fields:

    KATR 1 (Attribute 1)

    KATR 2 (Attribute 2)

    KATR 3 (Attribute 3)

    KATR 4 (Attribute 4)

    KATR 5 (Attribute 5)

    Five three-digit fields:

    KATR 6 (Attribute 1)

    KATR 7 (Attribute 2)

    KATR 8 (Attribute 3)

    KATR 9 (Attribute 4)

    KATR 10 (Atrribute 5)

    Check tables TVKO - TVK9 and the corresponding maintenance views

    V_TVV1 - V_TVK9 exist for the fields.

    2. Five three-digit fields were included in table KNVV (Sales data of the customer master record):

    KVGR1 (Customer group 1)

    KVGR2 (Customer group 2)

    KVGR3 (Customer group 3)

    KVGR4 (Customer group 4)

    KVGR5 (Customer group 5)

    Check tables TVV1 - TVV5 and the corresponding maintenance views V_TVV1 - V_TVV5 exist for the fields. The fields were included in tables VBAK, VRRP, LIPS, KUAGVZ. Value is also assigned to them in the tables, which means that they were copied from the master record of the sold-party and used in the sales and distribution transaction.


    In the standard system, the views are not included in the user interface. However, it is possible for you to include them in the user interface.

    <b>Using reserve fields</b>

    To use a reserve field of the customer master according to your requirements, proceed as follows:

    1. Change the short descriptions of the data elements by using the SAP enhancement.

    2. Choose Tools -> ABAB Workbench -> Utilities -> Enhancements -> Project management -> Text enhancements -> Key words -> Change.

    3. Maintain the corresponding entity tables TVKO-TVK9 or TVV1-TVV5.


    You want to use the reserve fields of the customer master (general part) to store the liquidity level of your customer to use for statistical analyses. Proceed as follows:

    1. Change data element KATR1:

    -> Change the short description "Attribute 1" to "Customer liquidity".

    -> Change the corresponding key words.

    2. Aktivate data element KATR1.

    3. Maintain entity table TVK1, by defining the following values:

    -> "01" good liquidity

    -> "02" average liquidity

    -> "03" poor liquidity

    4. Use the same procedure for the remaining reserve fields KATR2-KATR10.

    data..which is ZSAP which you created in previoous

    step...i.e. custom layout.

    05. It displays all the Tabs in the Custome master, the

    last one should be 7. now you add new tab.. no 8

    with meaning ful description. and SAve
