    Hi Alaric,

    Here you can find Use of Common Distribution channel and divisions.

    The porpuse of the common devisions and distribution channels is you can use single Master data (Customer master,Material master and price master) which was created under one division and one distribution channel to the different divisions and different distribution channels.

    You no need to created different master data for the different Distribution channels and different divisions.

    If you want more details go through this link it will help you

    I hope it will clear for you

    Regards,

    Hello,

    Common Distribution Channel is maintained so that if any master data like customer or material maintained with respect to one distribution channel can be used in other DCh. It prevents the multiplication of master records.

    Eg: A customer is created for say sales area 1000/20/00 then the same customer can be used in sales area 1000/30/00 if we maintain 20 as common distribution channel. Hence no need for extending the customers...the same for materials also.

    Prase
