partner functions in sales orders

Hi experts,

Partner determination has been set accordingly. But I still encounter the issues below in the same order. Moreover, those issues just occur in either order header level or item level, such as issue 2 - RE & WE can be changed in order item but can NOT be changed in order header.

My request is to prevent from changing partner, i.e. cannot change customer code manually in ordes. Currently, sold-to party, bill-to party, ship-to party and payer are the same. Pls help. Thx.

Issue 1: Partner function RG (payer) can be changed to other customer code manually in order header.

Issue 2: Partner function RE (bill-to party) , WE (ship-to party) & RG can be changed to other customer code manually in order item.

    Dear Cathy,

    This is due to Non-Mandatory check box in the Partner Functions in IMG which is controlled seperately for Sales Document Header & Sales Document Item Level.

    To make required setting follow this:

    IMG - Sales and Distribution - Basic Functions - Partner Determination - Set Up Partner Determination - Set Up Partner Determination for Sales Document Header:

    Here select TA - Standard Order & then select Partner Funtions in Procedure on left side.

    Here against the required Partner Function you need to put Tick mark in Non-Modifiable Check Box if you dont want to change it at Sales Order Header Level.

    Similarly follow for Sales DOcument Item Level. (IMG - Sales and Distribution - Basic Functions - Partner Determination - Set Up Partner Determination - Set Up Partner Determination for Sales Document Item) & do the necessary settings.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks,

    Jignesh Mehta

    Hi,

    This can be prevented by making the changes in configuration screen.

    > Issue 1: Partner function RG (payer) can be changed to other customer code manually in order header.

    The answer for this issue is:

    Goto SPRO >Sales and Distribution >Basic Functions >Partner Determination >Set Up Partner Determination-->Set Up Partner Determination for Sales Document Header.

    Click on "Partner Determination Procedure Assignment".

    Check the partner procedure assigned for your order type.

    Click on "Partner Determination Procedures".

    Select that procedure.

    Click on "Partner Functions in Procedure".

    Select the partner function "RG(Payer)".

    Check the tick mark for this under the field "Not Modifiable".

    > Issue 2: Partner function RE (bill-to party) , WE (ship-to party) & RG can be changed to other customer code manually in order item.

    The answer for this issue is:

    Goto SPRO >Sales and Distribution >Basic Functions >Partner Determination >Set Up Partner Determination-->Set Up Partner Determination for Sales Document Item.

    Click on "Partner Determination Procedure Assignment".

    Check the partner procedure assigned for your item category.

    Click on "Partner Determination Procedures".

    Select that procedure.

    Click on "Partner Functions in Procedure".

    Select the partner functions "RE,WE and RG".

    Check the tick mark for this under the field "Not Modifiable".

    If you do these changes all the partner types specified are non modifiable.

    Regards,

    Krishna.
