    Dear Geetha,

    If you used to configure with the partner object "Customer Master" it will applicable only for cuatomer i.e you will be able to create the customer master with your account group and partner functions assignment in your partner determination procedure.

    But you can't use this customer in Sales orders Header , item , in delievry, in billing functions so to perferm all these functions with that customer you need ti assign same partner procedure to all these areas in the customisation.

    I hope this will help you,

    Regards,

    Murali.

    Dear Geetha

    For normal sale order process itself, you need to maintain the values in other tabs like Sales Document Header, Sales Document Item etc.,

    thanks

    Hi,

    Partners appear in the system at various levels, such as in the customer master, sales document header, sales document items and so on.

    You can define your own partner determination procedures for each of these levels.

    A partner determination procedure is where you determine which partner functions may or must appear.

    You determine areas of validity by assigning procedures.

    Following rules should be used to perform automatic partner determination.

    1. Define the partner functions that differentiate the roles of partners in your system.

    2. Define the partner determination procedure, and assign the key of the relevant partner object to this procedure.

    3. Assign the partner functions you define to the account groups.
