    To enter a transaction in Advertising Management Order Processing for a one-time customer, you must maintain a collective customer master record (one-time customer) for the media customer BP role.

    Assign a meaningful key to the collective customer master record. Business partner groupings control system response to one-time customers. This is not visible in the change or display mode.

    Assign a dummy address to the collective customer master record for one-time customers.

    Addresses and bank details for the customer in this order are not entered in the master record, but are added to the sales document manually. To enter the business partner number for the collective customer master record during order processing, a dialog box appears on which you maintain the business partner address for the specific order involved.

    The system selects the One-time customer indicator at order header level automatically in the Customizing settings for the business partner grouping. The icon is used to display the one-time customer address.


    1.) Define an account group for One-time customers with external number assignment under:

    Financial Accounting --> Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable --> Customer Accounts --> Master Data --> Preparations for Creating Customer Master Records --> Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers).

    Select the One-time account indicator for this account group.

    2.)Define a One-time customer with external number assignment business partner grouping with the appropriate number range in the SAP Business Partner Customizing settings:

    Cross-Application Components--> SAP Business Partner --> Business Partner --> Basic Settings --> Number Ranges and Groupings --> Define Groupings and Assign Number Ranges.

    3.) Assign the group you have defined in Financial Accounting to the grouping and number range for the SAP Business Partner in Customizing under

    SAP Media --> Master Data --> Business Partner --> Control --> Define Account Groups.

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


    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



    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



    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



    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
