Difference between XD01 and VD01

Hello Gurus,

I need some expert advise on these transactions ie XD01 and VD01. If I create a customer with VD01 what will be the major difference.

I know that

XD01 - Create Customer Centrally (Has company code data)

VD01 - Sales and distribution customer (w/o company code data)

Also can if I create only customers with vd01 transaction how will finanacial accounting take place.

Can u also tell me which business processes can get affected.

Regards

Mahesh

    hi,

    if you create the customer using vd01 you canot maintain the finacial data. ie co cd data.

    usually in sap implimentation finance people will configure the financial related data ie the company code data using the t code FD01 and sales people would be updating the sales related data using VD01

    HI Mahesh...

    To put in simple words, If you are creating a cusotmer with XD01, its having all the data inclusive of the essential data to the Finance and controlling.

    Whereas if you are creating with VD01, you can enter and view the data only related to the sales view.

    The purpose should be that in real time, certain users will be having restrictions to view the data which is concerned with the finance dept.

    Thanks,

    Dear Mahesh,

    I you create Customer with VD01, you cannot create master rerocds for Company code data for that particular Customer.

    In cases like these you would not be able to enter Reconciliation accounts, sort key, Terms of payment & other details in Customer Master.

    The best example if you have not mentioned Reconciliation account then system would not post the sales amount in the respective GL accounts...

    HOpe this helps..

    THanks,

    Hello Friends

    In that case, you have to ask your FI consultant to create corresponding customer in FD01, where only company data related data will be provided.

    Thus, only creating customer in VD01 will not solve your requirement.

    So, for creating Customer master data:

    Either simply, you create that in XD01 Centrally, where you maintain all the 3 Data (General, Company and Sales).

    Or else, ask your FI consultant to create master data with your desired company code in FD01 and then with the same customer number create master data in VD01 for sales view. Mind it the sales area should be from same company code.

    Take care.

    Dear Mahesh

    The main difference is that without Company Code data, you cannot define the Reconciliation Account of the customer and without assigning this, you cannot generate billing.

    thanks

    Hello Gurus,

    Just in continuation to this topic.

    My Question

    If have two company codes and two sales areas

    Eg Company Code Sales Area

    0001 0001 01 01 Sales Org 0001 assigned to CC 0001

    OP01 OP01 O1 O1 Sales Org OP01 assigned to CC OP01

    There is no assignment of company code 0001 and sales org OP01 and vice versa

    Should I be allowed to create a customer for company code 0001 and sales area OP01 O1 O1?

    Should I be allowed to create the entire sales cycle?

    In my case it is happening. Please suggest ..

    Thanks & regards

    Mahesh
