    Hello Rob,

    The customer hierarchy function in the SAP system is carried out using the partner concept. The individual nodes are defined as partners and linked to a higher level partner.

    During sales order and billing processing, customer hierarchies are used in pricing to take into account every aspect relevant to pricing and rebates for customers with a complex group and association structure in particular.

    For example, if a sales order is edited for a customer who is allocated to a customer hierarchy relevant for pricing, the relevant hierarchy path, which displays the chain of hierarchy nodes to which the initial hierarchy node is related, is determined automatically. If condition records exist for a higher-level node, pricing is carried out with reference to the conditions available there.

    The hierarchy nodes of a customer hierarchy are created as customer master records with account group (0012). The structure of the hierarchy results from allocating the hierarchy node master records. It is also possible to create customers with different account groups as hierarchy nodes (for example, 0001 for the sold-to party).

    When making settings for customer hierarchy, you must not only take hierarchy category into account. You must also consider higher-level partner functions which are maintained in partner determination.

    Depending on hierarchy category, special partner functions are determined during order processing for each node on the hierarchy path. Starting with the initial partner function higher-level partner functions are determined and assigned to nodes in the customer hierarchy path.

    If you wish to use more than three customer hierarchy levels, you must first extend the partner functions (Table TPAR). Keep in mind that the system can process only up to 26 hierarchy levels.
