    HI ,

    One time customer means that customer will purchase only one time from our company there is no longer relation ship with him.

    1

    The flag for a One-Time Customer is maintained in the Account Groups customisation, transaction OBD2.You can either use an existing Account Group (e.g. CPD) or create a new one. You then create an account in XD01/VD01 using that Account Group. When you subsequently use that account in a Sales Order, you will be prompted for the Customer's Name & Address

    -


    2

    Creation of group - Vendor/ Customers - OBD3 / OBD2

    Define number ranges - Vendor/ Customers - XDN1 / XKN1

    Assign Number ranges to the groups Vendor/ Customers - OBAS / OBAR

    Creat Master data for one time vendors/customers (Centrally) XK01 / XD01

    -


    3

    when you are creating customer master for one time account group it is asking the reference account because of it has been kept as required entry in OBD2 t. code i.e creating account groups. so may be that field checked as required entry so that while creating CMR system asking the reference account.

    One time customer master record that represents all partner functions and is used as a general customer for all the cases which you do not want to create a new specific master record.

    Steps you follow.

    Under IMG

    Financial Accounting -> Accounts Receivables and Accounts Payable -> Customer Master -> Master Data -> Preparation for Creating Master Data -> Define Account Group with Screen Layout

    Other wise use Transaction OBD2

    -


    4

    A one time customer can be created using the standard account group that exists for a 'One Time Customer' in SAP .

    One time Customer Account group will be having its own mandatory fields such as Addresses and bank details that are required for a single transaction.

    The following is the steps:

    SPRO-->Financial Accounting

    -->Accounts Receivables and Accounts Pay ables

    >Customer Accounts>Master Data

    -->Preparations for creating Customer Master Data

    -->Click Define Account Groups with Screen Layout

    -->Click New Entries -->Check the field One time Account

    Regards,

    kishore.

    hi,

    1.One time customers: are those who are not frequent customers. Company will be using those vendors very rarely, maybe once in a life time. SAP is giving a special category for those type of customers. Normal customers will have separate Master Data which will have their address, country, bank account, terms of payment, payment methods, etc.

    Whereas there will not be such records kept in Master data for those one time customer. This way you will reduce the data base size. There will be one customer master record named as one time vendors and will have the check box ticked while creating this record. Country field is mandatory when creating a normal customer master (sap standard) whereas it will not be in case of one time customer.

    When you post a document to this customer (One time customer), it will prompt you to fill the name address and all the required fields at the document level.

    2.

    V-07 - Create a one-time customer. (Account Group - CPDA)

    In order for the user to create sales order, you have to maintiain the Account group for the Sold-to Party. (SP)

    VOPA - Maintain Partner Determination

    Click Partner functions

    Click Environment -> Acct. grp. assignment

    To create a new entries, press Page Down till the last line

    Hope this helps u

    regards,

    Hi,

    For one-time customer in customer master data you will only find the followings:

    In general data tab page: address and control data

    sales area data: sale, shipping and billing documents tab pages.

    For one time customer every time in sales order after giving sold-to-party number, it always ask for address of the customer(This address screen will automatically pop-up)

    Rewrard Points if it is helpful

    Regards

    Ashis

    Hi,

    One time customer means the customer who buys a product for only once.

    e.g. If in a electronics company who only keeps music system, you only go once to buy a music system. You will not buy like delaers or whole seller buy.You buy only once for ur house hold purpose.

    In IMG there is a differnt account group for one-time customer.

    While creating customer by going transaction code xd01, you select that account group for one time customer and create customer master record.

    Reward Points if it helps.

    Regards

    Ashis
