credit control area

HI,

We have two company codes, XXXX and YYYY where n XXX is sold off, so all the customers need to be assigned to new credit control area of YYY . New credit control area is also assigned to new company code.

My question is will it have any effects for the documents that have been posted, Do i need to check for any more prerequistes here for changing it

There are 700 customers in XXXX, please advice how to upload the new credit control area at a shot can we do it through lsmw, what are the prerequsities. , or do we need manually upload it .

Thanks

SM

    Hi SM,

    A Credit Control Area can be assigned to any number of Company Codes. You would have assigned same Credit Control Area

    to both the Company Codes XXXX and YYYY. If you are going to transfer & upload all the customer Master records in XXXX

    to YYYY still they belong to same Credit Control Area. The documents posted in XXXX wont have any effect for the document

    to be posted in future for YYYY. The documents are posted at Company Code level (Header). I also assume that the Chart of

    Accounts for both the Company Codes are similar. You can go for LSMW or BDC for uploading Credit Management data through FD32 for the existing customers in XXXX if you have created a new Credit Control Area for YYYY. You can revert back if you need any further clarification.

    Best Regards,

    Hi,

    I got the solution for your problem. What you need to do is to go to transaction code "MASS" and put boject type KNA1 and then select "Customer master credit management: Control area data" and then press Execute transaction.

    Now, put all the customer codes there and the new credit control area, which is supposed to be replaced and execute the transaction.

    This will upload the new credit control area in one shot.

    Remember- This can not be undone.

    All the best !

    Regards
