    Hi David,

    As per the standard single plant can't be assignod to more than one company code.

    The relation between plant and company code is Meny to One not One to Meny.

    I hope it will clear for you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

    Hi,

    You cannot directly assign a plant in one company code to another company code, however for cross-company sales a plant in one company code can be assigned to a sales organization of another company code.

    Hope this answers your query.

    Thanks

    HI

    The plant is an operating area within a company so same plant we can't assign to another company code.

    it might be inventory problems

    thanks

    Hi David,

    Apart from obviously being a Restriction by SAP, i think the reason should be related to Accounting problems.

    As far as i know we need to present the inventory valuation in the company balance sheet now say plant1 is assigned to Company Code A and Company Code B We dont know whose balance sheet to valuate the Inventory from plant1 into which is a legal requirement.

    This i think is one of the reasons why we are permitted to assign one plant only to one Company Code.

    I believe other reason must also be similar.

    Hi,

    A plant can be assigned to only one company code,lBecuase complete functionality of System can only be ensured .

    Stocks,Production and material movements has monetary value and it has to be recorded in accounts.(Balance sheet.... etc) This accounting documents(Balance sheet and Profit & Loss accounts) are maintained per company code level.

    Hence legally and practically it is not possible to divide to more than one company code.

    It is also a legal requirement.

    Thanks,

    Hi David,

    Plant is the area where all the sales activities will be processed with respect to the company code of one r more sales organizations.As our friends explained for accurate accounting purpose with respect to company code we have to assign a plant to only one company code. Bcz thre will be a seperate balance sheet and profit and loss account for each company code.

    If we assign one plant to different company codes there is no need to create company code.

    Regards,
