Trading Partner + Document type

Hi

As per my understanding, there are following 2 options for posting trading partner on a line item:

Option - 1

I checked the fields u2018Inter-company postingu2019 and u2018Enter Trading Partneru2019 in the control tab for Document type.

In this case, Documents can be posted cross-company and you can enter the partner for G/L account items manually.

In this case, system will not derive Trading Partner based on the trading partner on other line item of the document if this field is left blank during the document entry

Option - 2

I did not check the field u2018Inter-company postingu2019 and checked u2018Enter Trading Partneru2019 in the control tab for Document type.

In this case, you manually enter Trading Partners. Cannot be a Cross-company partners (different trading partners on different lines). If there is GL/Vendor/Customer with a trading partner, system will post the same on other line item or system will automatically derive trading partner on the other line item

Is there a way that system derives Trading partner automatically on the GL line item based on the trading partner in the master data of vendor on the credit line item (Option - 2) and at the same time if i need to overwrite it / change it on the GL line, i have the flexibility to do that.

Please advice

Thanks,

Shiv

    Hi Shiv,

    Please see if attached Note 386896,779844 applies to your situation.

    Let me expplain how the system works concerning the setting of XMGES (enter trading partner) and XGESUB(intercompany posting)

    XMGES NOT set and XGSUB NOT set:

    ===============================

    If VBUND is maintained in the master data of the customer or vendor, VBUND is transferred to all line items while POSTING the document.

    XMGES set and XGSUB NOT set:

    ===========================

    VBUND can be entered for the whole document. Only possible for G/L accounts, which have not maintained a VBUND in the master data. VBUND entered in the document header will be transferred to all line items.

    XMGES NOT set and XGSUB set:

    ===========================

    Enables to post a cross-company document. More than one VBUND is concerned. VBUND is not unique for the whole document. Master data are not regarded.

    XMGES set and XGSUB set:

    =======================

    Enables to post a cross-company document. A manual entry of VBUND for the G/L account is possible (it is not transferred into G/L account from the customer/vendor; but into customer/vendor line item) to the G/L account.

      Hi

      Thanks for the response

      Let's take the following scenario:

      XMGES NOT set and XGSUB NOT set:

      ===============================

      If VBUND is maintained in the master data of the customer or vendor, VBUND is transferred to all line items while POSTING the document.

      In the above case, is it possible to manually change the Trading Partner on the GL line item. Most of the time, VBUND from vendor will be used but in some special cases, business needs to change it. What should be the configuration settings to achieve that

      Thanks

      Shiv
