common divisions

Hi Experts.

I have 2 dist channels and 3 divisions, suppose D & E are Dist Cha. and A, B and C are divisions.

I have created cust (10) for sales area PPPP, D, A but i have the material(Z) for PPPP,D but division is B.

When i am creating SO for PPPP,D,A and cust (10) which belongs to same sales area but when i am incerting material (Z-PPPP,D,B) system gives error - "Ship-to party 10 not defined for sales area PPPP D B."

I tried to common divisions OVR2,

S O Div DivCon DivCust

PPPP A A A

PPPP B B B

PPPP C C C

There is no New Entry option, only entries in dark i can change...

How can i sale Material from different divisions to customers who are created for different Sales Areas?

Please Help...

Prashant.

    Hi Prashant,

    As per your setting I want you do this kind of customizing

    Do this kind of setting for common distribution channel

    PPPP D D D

    PPPP E D D

    And for common division do this kind of setting

    PPPP A B B

    PPPP B B B

    PPPP C B B

    Save the entries and try to create your order now

    It might work

    Regards

    Raj.

    Hi

    Pls check OVR2 in common divisions

    It is for conditions and customers only Not for materials as written by you

    Because the div in MMR itself is a field so the MMR master data cannot be shared

    Hence you have to extend this customer to the sales area where the division of the material lies in XD01

    Then only it will work

    In simple MMR cannot be shared across divisions

    In case of Distribution channels it is OK

    What exactly is your error

    I can help you ?

    Dear Prashant,

    Just try:

    T. Code: MM02

    Key-in your Material-Code and Hit "Enter".

    Now, System will ask for "Select Views", and click ok.

    Next, System will ask for "Organizational Levels", i.e. Plant, Sales Org. & Dist. Channel.

    Important: here, you are not maintaining "Division".

    Now, go in to Material-Master-Record.

    Under Tab: Sales: sales org.1, you will find Field: Division.

    Maintain this field as "BLANK".

    Now, go back to Sales Order and Create. System will not throw erro.

    Best Regards,

    Amit

    Hi Prashanth

    The common distribution channel assignment in VOR1 means say for e.g Your Dis channel is 10 and common dist channel is 20 and when you create a sales order with Dis channel 10 the system will check for all condition records, customer records and material master records in distribution channel 20

    The common division assignment in VOR2 means say for e.g Your divis 01and common divis 02and when you create a sales orderwith div 01 the system will check for all condition records, customer records and not material master records in division 02

    It is because division is a field in MMR not an organization unit

    So MMR cannot be shared according to divisions

    In VOR1 You will see all conditions ,customers,and materials

    In VOR2 You will see only all conditions ,customers,and not materials

    You have to do it in XD01 only not not by any other way

    To understand the purpose of VOR1 and VOR2 and the logic which i explained you, for me to understand it took 2 days

    Regards

    Hi Prashanth

    The system is behaving 100% perfect

    Your Case

    These are the sales areas

    THER DO RE

    THER DO AG

    THER DO VE

    Customer A exists in sales area THER DO RE

    Check your MMR the material is div AG

    Your assignments are fine in VOR2 But the system will not check MMR why refer to my earlier threads

    Settings in OVR2,

    SOrg--


    DV
    DivCond
    --


    DivCustomer

    THER--


    AG
    *RE
    --


    RE*

    THER--


    RE
    *AG
    --


    AG*

    THER--


    VE
    *VE
    --


    VE*

    So the common dist channel for AG is RE and RE

    So the common dist channel for RE is AG and AG

    So the common dist channel for VE is VE and VE

    You are entering an order for this customer A sales area THER DO RE

    But the material belongs to div AG

    Here header div is RE and item div is AG

    Forget common div assignment because it will not check the MMRs

    Since header div and item div differs you need to create a ship to party in sales area THER DO AG and assign him to this sold to party A in his sales area THER DO RE

    or alternatively (this is what i suggested earlier)

    You extend this customer A who is in sales area THER DO RE to the sales area THER DO AG

    Without these you will not be able to create the order sir in your case

    Why new entries option is not there in VOR1 and VOR2 because we are defining dis channel and div in enterprise structure and here we are defining only common DC and Common div

    So whatever DC and DIV you have created in enterprise structure will flow here and for them you have to give Common DC and Common DIv

    Sir i have tried to explain you to my fullest capacity

    +Distribution channel is an organizational unit in CMR,MMR,and condition master+

    +Hence the data can be shared across Distribution channels+

    +Division is anorganizational unit in CMR,,and condition master only+

    +Hence you are not finding Material in Common divisions in VOR2+

    *+Division is field in MMR which we mention in basic data 1and sales org data1 while creating a material in MM01+

    Regards*
