    Hi,

    A plant belongs to only one company code. It is one to one relationship between them. Also the same lies with storage location and plants. A storage location only can be assigend to single plant.

    Becoz for all the purchasing documents when you specify plant you must have to specify company code which is specific.

      Dear Jurgen L

      You are right. It is deleting the first assignment.

      Thanks a lot.

      Sorry for the late reply. My issue was resolved on the same day.

    hi,

    yes you can assign one plant code to many co. code...but the plant code will be unique with the co. code...

    example:

    1 co. code assigned to plant A, B, C

    2 co. code can also be assigned to plant A, B, C....

    • sure you can technically re-assign a plant to a different company code, this is must to correct errors made with initial customizing. However, this reassignment may only be done as long you dont have transactional data.

      If you have already done posting to G/L accounts, I doupt that these entries will be moved to the other company code when you change the assignment in custominzing.

    Dear,

    You can not assign one plant to multiple company codes...

    For that you have to create 2 plants with different codes but adress will be one only.

    ONE plant can only belong to ONE company code.

    One plant CANNOT be assigned to multiple compnay codes. See the help for the IMG activity.

    Hi,

    If it is regarding nomenclature i.e. then the same key can be be used agian for different plants. If it regarding the representation for the plant I mean plant 1000 key can be used for different company codes.

    Plant 1000 can be assigned to company code 1000

    Plant1000 can also be assigned to company code 1200

    It is only the nomenclature, but the addresses and all other details are the different for each plnats.

    Baseline is same key can be used twice
