    Hi

    You can extend customers either to a different Company Code or to a different Sales Area. You cannot extend them to a different region.

    If your customer has physical presence in that region, create them as a separate SH for different regions.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Dear Jay

    If you would like to generate report based on sales office, make the field as mandatory in VA01.

    thanks

    Jay,

    The Customer Master Record is created for a particular Sales Area and for a defined Region. As per standard SAP, if you want to extend the sames customer to other regions, it is not possible. But it is possible with using Z-field for this region.

    This would involve more bespoke.

    Else, create another customer (SH,BP or PY) with the same Sales Area, as per requirement and assign them in your Sold to party customer Partner functions.

    So these new (e.g) Ship to customers will be avaliable in diffeternt regions.

    Thanks
