    Hello,

    If the palts are under same company codes, you can always change the same during the creation of sales order.

    Don't maintain the delivering plant in the customer master. Select appropriate delivering plant in the sales order manually.

    Dear Balaji.t

    Donot maintain "Delivering Plant" field in Customer Master Data.

    In sales order, please enter plant manually thruogh which you want to deliver the stock. Make sure that stock is available to respective plants.

    Regards

    If the customer gets the deliveries from plants based on the material that he has ordered, then you can default a particular plant for the Customer and Material combination in the Customer Material Info records.

      Yes in CMIR, you can maintain only one plant. If the customer is serviced from multiple plants, then as already suggested here, dont maintain the delivering plant in material master.

      While creating sale order, decide which plant should produce the material and accordingly maintain the delivering plant in sale order.

      In fact, this is applicable in case one particular material is being manufactured in different plants. On the other hand, if your requirement is such that different materials from different plant, then there is no issue at all. You can maintain either in CMIR or material master.

      thanks

    Hi there,

    When determining the plant system 1st checks in customer material info record. If not found then it will check in customer master. If not found then in material master.

    So in your case donot maintain the plant in CMIR or customer master. Just maintain in the material master.

    Also in a sales order you can change the plant manually. So change it manually.

    But make sure that all the required plants are assigned to the company code & sales org / dist channel combination. Only then you can manually change the plant. Also material should be extended to all the required plants.

    Apart from this, if you want to automatically propose plants, then you need to write a customized code in teh user exit in MV45AFZZ.

    There you have to define the conditions under which the system should automatically propose another plant. Check with your ABAPer if you want to go by the automatic method. But that is not advised as it is very complicated since it involved many scenarios to code for auto swap.

    Regards,
