Partner Procedure - Sales Document Header

Hello Gurus,

I am unclear when should Partner procedure for Sales Doc header be used?

I configured both customer partner procedure and sales document header partner procedure.

When I create a sales document , the partner function tab does not propose the sales employee configured in sales doc header procedure. The sales employee partner function is not configured in customer partner procedure, however.

Does this mean that if I configure customer master partner procedure with sales employee partner function, it would show up in the sales doc partner tab automatically even if I do not configure a sales doc partner procedure?

If so, I like to find out why use Partner Procedure for Sales Doc Header when having it without Customer Partner Procedure

means in the sales doc partner tab, the Partner function of the customer would not be proposed?

    this is to inform you that,

    please configure sales employee in PARTNER DETERMINATION PROCEDURE of customer master.

    then it will flow from Customer partner determination and then if you configure the same in sales header data you will having an option to change it.

    exactly you are 100% right on this statement - which starts with DOES THIS.........

    please have a look into this links:

    Partner procedure in Customer master is used to determine the Partner function related to the customer.

    Partner procedure in Sales document header is used for determining partner functions for that particular transaction (could be same as in customer master).

    In your case, if you want to determine the employee responsible, then I believe it is the one (you want) who is entering the order and not the one who created the customer master record.

    There is standard feature that allows you to inherit all/required partner functions from the customer master or you can put your own rules or even custom procedure using user-exit.

    Anyhow, it purely depends on your requirement.

    Hope this helps you !
