problem with sales order

hello everyone,

I have this problem while creating the sales order. I created a customer-7000. i defined all the partner funtions, assigned them to the account group, defined a partner determination procedure, placed the P.Funtions in procedure and also assigned the procedure to my account group. Now when i am creating the order, in the top sold to party field when i enter the 7000 number( my customer no) it says " No customer master record exists for Sold to Party 7000".Previously i was given some useful advice here in the forum regarding the same problem and i tried all of 'em but in vain. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong here please kindly help. I m not able to put one step forward here.

Thank u in advance.

    hi,

    Check the partner determination procedure and the assignment of partner functions to the account group etc. Always ensure u have standard partner function SP in ur list of partner functions of the partner determination procedure.

    or else do not create new partner functions and instead use the SP,SH,BP,PY standard functions and assign these to u r account group ans use further.

    check this OSS Note 316323

    Summary

    Symptom

    The system issues message VP 199: "No customer master record exists for sold-to party &".

    Additional key words

    Mandatory partner

    Cause and prerequisites

    Solution

    Partners with the partner type 'KU' require 4 mandatory partners in the customer master: SP, SH, BP, PY!!!

    These must be set via

    a) the customer group

    Transaction OBD2:

    > Sales data

    > Partner usage

    > Business partner assignment : Optional entry

    Partner determination procedure: AG - customer master

    Partner determination: VOPA

    > Customer master --> partner determination procedure

    > Functions in the procedure 'SP'

    Mark the following partners as 'Mandatory partner function'

    > SP Sold-to party

    > BP Bill-to party

    > PY Payer

    > SH Ship-to party

    hai,

    check clearly at the time of creating customer master. ensure that in the sales

    area data, the parter functions tab relevant partner functions exits.

    In order to display those partner functions automatically, you need to select the

    check box(mandatory) in the partner determination procedure against the partner function.

    regards

    Dear Gopi

    First of all to ensure that you have created the customer 7000, go to XD02, give 7000 in the field "<i>Customer</i>" and its Company Code.

    Now select "<i>Customer's sales area</i>" tab at the bottom right side. It will show in which sales area you have created the customer. Ensure that the sales area what you are seeing here is the same while you create order through VA01.

    Thanks

    Hi

    First check in the XD03 transaction code whether the customer is created in that particular sold to party account group and Check for the sales area u r entered

    If created, then check whether the partner functions are created and assigned to the customer.

    The procedure to create partner functions is first create partner determination procedure in which required partner functions will be available and then assign it to account group.

    Hi,

    The possible solution is:

    You mentioned that you have created a customer-7000,but you need to create a SOLD TO PARTY.

    Because you are giving the details of the sold to party in va01 ,but not the customer details.

    Sold to party account group and customer account group are different.

    Please check the details once again,and reward points if this answer is helpful.

    Thank you,

    Bye

    hi

    most of time when that error occures is becouse the customer is not linked as vendor, display your custome and check under control data if the 7000 no is linked Acc control Vendond, to link that you go to MK01 Vendor 7000 Acc group i put EXCH 06 exchange vendor and see where you will get
