I have a requirement as follows:
Before creating a Customer master, my client enters into an agreement with the distributor. A contract is made for a certain period, usually 1year. The distributor pays a security deposit of 5lakhs after which the distributorship is awarded to the customer and then the customer master is created in SAP.
Now my client wants to map this is SAP. The requirement is such that once the validity period of the distributorship contract is expired, we should not be able to create any sales orders. Also the client wants to capture the Bank details and check number in the customer master.
Can you please suggest how to map this in SAP. I was thinking about Value contracts. Bu this does not work for me since when I create a Sales Order with reference to a contract it deducts the amount in the contract. But my requirement is a little different. there is no sale happening with respect to contract amount. The contract is merely for agreement purpose between the customer and my client.
