Creating several roles for one partner

Hi everyone !

I have created a partner with a role (=employee) . Then I wanted to create a second different role ( = physical person) for that same partner, but when I try to save the role in BP, I get an error message ;

the message is "Enter at least one tax number for the business partner"

Normally there is no tax number requirements for physical persons, only for organizations, so I don't understand where that message comes from. Is it due to the fact that I tried to create 2 roles for the same partner?

Any helpful hints on this will be rewarded !

Many thanks.

C.K.

    Hi,

    Its definitely not because of 2 roles . You can assign as may roles. This message is because in the customzing there must be some setting for physical person role.

    You can get rid of this by follwoing steps

    go to transaction spro

    Cross application components->sap business partner -> business partner ->field grouping -> configure field grouping per role. Double click on the role Physical person. Double click on dataset BUTC01. On the right side choose the radio button hide or optional. Now the message will not come.

    Wram regards,

    Smita.
