Unable to Pass Some Partner Function Values to CO-PA from SD

Normally the partner function values are passed to COPA as characteristics through table PAPARTNER which is accessible through transaction KEA5, create/edit characteristics. Partner function u201CAEu201D account executive

Is not available in this table so canu2019t be selected using standard functionality. From SD document table VBPA we need to pass the values for the partner function (field PARVW) when partner function=AE. The partner function

values are populated in field u201CPERNRu201D personnel number. We have a user defined COPA characteristic which needs to receive the partner function values. Can this be done with a table lookup in transaction KEDR?

There are several OSS notes talking about complex technical solutions involving data dictionary etc.

Can anyone throw some light on how to get the account executive field updated in the COPA document?

Thanks and Regards

    For each Part Func, you will have to write 2 derivation rules.. W/o derivation rules, you cant achieve this...

    1. In one derivation rule - Make COPA_KDPOS as constant value 0000

    2. In another derivation rule - Leave it as it is.. Do not define as a constant

    You need 2 der rules because if the part func is maintained in Sale Order - Then it is updated in VBPA against Sales Order LIne Item 10, 20 etc
    If you dont change it in SO, then it is updated in VBPA against the Line Item 0000 i.e. against the Sales Order Header

    In Derivation rule, Map the SOURCE FIELD VBPA-PARVW to GLOBAL-USERTEMP1 and click on the magnifying lens beside USERTEMP1 and specify constant value AE
