TEM Billing from different companies


Hi all

We recently split our operations into two separate companies. We created a new enterprise structure (new company codes, new sales organisations and new cost centres) and logically split all operations to operate according to this new set up (i.e. there used to be one company, now we have company A and company B operating on the same SAP instance).

We did this setup while we were still on version 4.6C. One of the problems we faced is that we are using Billing for Training and Event Management. We now had to cater for billing for training from both companies depending on who offers which course. In the configuration for billing there is only one sales organisation that can be set up. In 4.6C we overcame this problem by allocating a specific cost centre number to the Event Type. This cost centre belonged to one or the other sales organisation and therefore we managed to successfully bill from the two different companies.

We recently upgraded to ECC6 and this scenario no longer works. When you debug transaction PV17, it assigns the sales organisation specified in the configuration and completely ignores the fact that you have assigned a different cost centre from a different sales organisation to that training event type.

I would like to know how I can bill for different training events from different companies. Any ideas will be most welcomed!
