    Dear Umed,

    This is a sequence infringement of Customizing activities.

    Once, You created Sales Org and Dist Chnl in IMG-Settings, i.e.

    SPRO --> IMG --> Enterprise Structure --> Definition --> Sales and Distribution

    --> Define Sales Org

    --> Define Dist. Chnl

    Also, create Division:

    SPRO --> IMG --> Enterprise Structure --> Definition --> Logistics - General --> Define Division

    Once, Enterprise Definition is Done, we make assignment:

    SPRO --> IMG --> Enterprise Structure --> Assignment --> Sales and Distribution

    --> Assign Dist. Chnl to Sales Org

    --> Assign Division to Sales Org

    --> Set Up Sales Area

    and Finally, we Maintain Following settings in sequence:

    OVAO: Define reference S. Org. - assign the same sales org to it, i.e, 1000 to 1000

    OVAM: Define reference D. Chl. - assign Sales Org+Dist channel, i.e. 1000+15 to 15

    OVAN: Define reference Dvn. - assign Sales Org+Division, i.e. 1000+ 99 to 99

    OVAZ - Assign Sales Document Type to permitted sales Area.

    Now, you get the error:

    Define <1000/15/99> first as a general sales area!

    As per my understanding, you must check and maintain Assignment, via:

    OVXK Assignment: Distr. Channel --> Sales Org

    OVXA Assignment: Division --> Sales Org

    OVXG Set Up: Sales Area: Overview

    and then make assignment in OVAZ.

    Please, check the same and update.

    Best Regards,

    Amit

    Dear Umed

    If your assignment in OVXG is pucca, then system will not throw this error. Check once again this area.

    thanks
