    Dear Sumith,

    A customer is a partner and you cannot create a sales order with out a partner function. you have to define the role of the customer ies where partner function plays the main role.

    Hi

    I guess you are asking about Partner Determination Procedure....

    If not done...

    1. for Customer -


    you cannot create a Customer Master Record(partner functions)

    2. for Sales Document Header --- the SP and SH fields will be greyed out and will not allow to input any values

    3. for Sales Document Item --- Material field will be greyed out and cannot enter any material number (at line item level).

    Hope this is relevant to your query and useful to you.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Hello !!

    To perform any Business Activity, a person/Company or Group of Persons/comapnies should be defined. You can take eaxmple of very small Business Establishment like Paan walas or Big Corporate Houses like Reliance Group.

    In SAP, four Mandatory BusinessPartner are Mandatory to run a scanario. They are :--

    1. Sold to -> Person whp places the order.

    2. Ship to -> who receives the Stock.

    3. Bill to -> Who receives the Invoice.

    4 Payer -> Who Pays the Bill.

    In SAP, all the Above 4 functions can be Performed by the one person or all the four can be Different.

    In sales order VA01, these partners will come automatically ( since you have defined them in IMG).

    While running the Order, System should know who are the partners for the Business .

    I have given brief idea abt Parnter Function. In above answers , Configuraiton is given.

    if you have any Doubts , please feel free to ask.

    Regards

    MAYANK
