    Use partner functions to define the rights and responsibilities of each business partner in a business transaction. You assign partner functions when you create a master record for a business partner.

    Partner functions for partner type vendor

    Ordering address

    Invoice presented by

    Goods supplier

    Alternative payee

    Partner function is used to determine diff partner

    suppose you have main vendor ven1 and the invoice will be issued by diff vendor e.g Ven2 then in your partner function you have to assign vendor Ven2 also so when you create the PO you can select that invoice presented by Ven2 or suppse you have diff goods supplier vendor then mateirla vendor then you can enter that here as diff GS vendor

    Partner function is the rights and responsibilities of each partner in a business transaction.

    Partner functions in Sales and Distribution include:

    Sold-to party

    Ship-to party

    In Materials Management the following partner roles exist:

    Ordering address

    Supplier of goods

    Investment Management (IM)

    The objects that specify the relationship (for example, the function or responsibility) that the holder of the role has to the appropriation request.

    The following partner functions, for example, are possible:

    Applicant

    Person responsible

    Approver

    Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

    A term, such as "sold-to party" or "payer", that describes a person or organization with whom you do business. In transactions, such as sales or service orders, partner functions are carried out by business partners that you have entered in the system.

    The system includes predefined partner functions, and you can also define your own in Customizing for Partner Processing.

    Billing Engine (CA-BE)

    A definition of the rights and responsibilities of a business partner in a business process.

    Partner functions are defined in the Application Customizing of a Billing Engine Application. The standard SAP partner functions (sold-to party, bill-to party, or payer, for example) can be supplemented with further user-defined partner functions (recipient of duplicate invoice, for example).

    You can define partner functions thru spro -mm -purchasing---partner roles.

    Hi,

    Generally during in your business transactions process we are specifying the roles involved by vendor ie… vendor act as a Goods Suplier, Ordering Address, Invoice Processing. Here all these functional activities by vendor we termed as partner functions (GS,IP, OA) in partner determination Process. SAP has standard Partner role and its 2 characters. You can create if any new business requirement there but of up to 2 characters(Alphanumeric key).

    Example: A company supplying material having plant in Hyderabad, south branch office is in bangalore and head office is in Delhi.So hyderabad plant is your"GS",banglaore office is your"OA" and Delhi office is "IP"where you pay to Vendor. for the procured material

    Regards,
