changing the delivering plant in a sales order removes the buyer part number

For instance the delivering plant sometimes will change due to availability. So the plant code may change from 5100 to 5000. When that occurs, the buyer part number gets blanked out in the sales order. Then subsequent documents will fail in EDI.

    You would have maintained Customer Material Info Record in VD51 and while creating sale order, system would give first priority to this and fetch the delivering plant accordingly. If you change that, it would have an impact on buyer part number also.

      Unfortunately we do not use that here. I wish we did. I have used that in previous companies.

    Hi,

    I did a simple test in my system. Changed the delivering plant and everything kept unchanged. Please check if any custom code is causing this problem.

    Check sales order user exit program MV45AFZB (using transaction SE38) - specifically FORM userexit_source_determination to see if other fields are being reset when the plant is modified. This form is executed to determine the source plant so there could be additional custom logic in there. It is typically also used to reset other fields should the plant value change.
