    Hi Ashima,

    Check the follwoing steps again ,

    Step 1: -

    Defining the Partner Functions: - Here we must not define any partner function.

    Go to partner functions.

    While defining the partner functions if we check the field u201CUniqueu201D that partner faction has to be unique in the customer master i.e. we cannot have multiple partners of that function in a customer master.

    Step 2: -

    Assigning the partner functions to the Account group: -

    Go to account groupu2019s function assignment.

    Go to new entries and assign the required partner functions to the required account group and save it.

    Step 3: -

    Defining the partner determination procedure: -

    Go to partner determination procedures

    Go to new entries and define and save it

    NOTE: - Procedure contains all the required partner functions.

    Step 4: -

    Placing the required partner functions in the procedure: - select the defined procedure and go to partner functions in procedure.

    Go to new entries and place the partner functions

    If we check the field u201CNot Modifiableu201D for a partner function it cannot change in the customer master.

    If we check the field u201CMandatory Functionu201D it becomes a mandatory in the customer master and save it.

    Step 5: -

    Assigning the procedure to the Account Group: - Go to partner determination procedure assignment. Assign the procedure to the account group and save it.

    Regds,

    Hi,

    This is one useful Post by one of the SD-Consultant.

    Go-through the explaination and find-out, what have you missed-out.

    In VOPA transaction code, you create a partner determination procedure. Here you specify the partner functions to be used & also mark the mandatory partner functions.

    This partner determination procedure is then assigned to the account group. Basically the standard account group for "sold to party - 0001" has all partner functions "SP", "SH", "BP" & "PY". Your requirement demands separate partne functions for SP, SH, BP & PY.

    So you will have to create 4 different partner determination procedures in VOPA.

    ZSOL - SP

    ZSHI - SH

    ZBIL - BP

    ZPAY - PY

    Create similar acount groups ZSOL, ZSHI, ZBIL & ZPAY in transaction code OBD2 & do the appropriate field selection for them.

    Now assign the partner determination procedures to the account groups in VOPA.

    ZSOL = ZSOL

    ZSHI = ZSHI

    ZBIL = ZBIL

    ZPAY = ZPAY

    Also assign the individual partner functions as mentioned below:

    ZSOL = SP, SH, BP, PY

    ZSHI = SH

    ZBIL = BP

    ZPAY = PY

    For ZSOL we assigned all partner functions because, when you will create a sold to party customer, you also have to specify who will the ship to party, bill to party & payer customers for the sold to party.

    Now if you want you can assign the same number range to all account groups (assign a single person to create the customer master. So whenever a new customer is created, the partners will be created in line which will be very helpful)

    Assume the number range is "0000010000 to 0000099999"

    Create SP for 10000

    Create SH for 10001

    Create BP for 10002

    Create PY for 10003

    Go to XD02 - select the customer 10000 - go to sales area data - partner functions.

    Here in the "PF" column enter SH & in number enter 10001

    Here in the "PF" column enter BP & in number enter 10002

    Here in the "PF" column enter PY & in number enter 10003

    So you have assigned the relevant partners to the sold to party.

    Hope this clarifies your doubt.

    best regards,

    Amit.
