    Hi

    Once the sales order has been created you can change the sold to partyonly when there should not be any subsequent documents created for the same sales order

    In T code -


    VA02

    Go to Header -partner tab and double clcick on the sold to party and change the name for the same

    prior to this you can change the customer name in the master data

      What are the definitive implications of changing the Sold-To on a contract that only has further billing to be done in its life? i.e no deliveries are relevant, but future billing documents will be but the contract will always have a different bill-to and payer partner account to the sold-to account.

      You mention document flow and accounting entry will be wrong. Historically the accounting entries prior to the change in sold-to would continue to relate to the old sold-to/bill-to/payer and the new entries would relate to the new sold-to/bill-to/payer? I'm not sure I understand about the document flow aspect.

      I understand from your comments and many othrs that SAP does not recommend changing the Sold-To, however this seems to be the simplest technical option for our business scenario. The alternative options to re-create a new contract (which would the be SAP standard method) cause complexity in our bespoke solution due to using non-standard revenue recognition. I'm trying to assess the comparitive between two non-ideal solutions.

      Regards

    Hi,

    If there is no subsequant document is created, you may go to VA02 screen and change the customer as desired.

    If any subsequant document is created, you need to cancel the same first and then you can change the sales orde customer via VA02 screen.

    VA02 - Sales Order Change.

    regards

    Vivek.
