    Hi there,

    When maintaining the material master, you extend the material to the sales org / distribution channel. If plant is not assigned to sales org / distribution channel, system will not allow you to extend the material to the sales org. That is the implication here.

    Also when raising the sales org, you raise it with respect to a sales area in VA01. When you enter a material in Va01, system will throw an error that plant isnot defined for the sales area is it is not assigned to sales org / dist channel.

    When defining the sales org you assign a plant there meaning that the sales org can be fulfilled by that plant. You can ofourse change the plant proposed by the system. Again when you change the plant, system will throw an error if it is not assigned to sales org / dist channel.

    Regards,
