Partner determination sold to party and ship to party.

Hi frnds,

Currently in the customer master in partner function we are maintaining ship to party the same as sold to party , now for some of the customer the ship to party and sold to party are different , so while creating a sales when i enter the sold to party , the system propose the ship to party and on that basis the delivery and billing should take place.

What are the configuration settings required to be done to this , i will maintain the ship to party in customer master partner determaination, but when i create the sales order and when i enter the sold to party , it should propse the ship

    Check in t.code VOPA, partner determination procedures are assigned to sales document header and sales document item. These procedure should have ship-to party partner function assigned in it. If this is maintained, then in sold-to customer master (T.code XD02) ->Sales area data->partner functions tab, maintain the ship-to numbers. If there is only one ship-to is assigned, then while creating sales order, the system will automatically populate the ship-to number. If there are multiple ship-to numbers assigned in the sold-to customer master, then the system pop-up a window with list of ship-to numbers, from which user must select one ship-to number.

    In Sold To Party, if there are multiple ship to parties, then while creating sale order, system will propose those ship to party and you can choose, provided if you have standard Partner Determination in place.

      For picking up of ship to party in the sales order, they will have to be maintained in the sold to party in the customer master. Also in the configuration check whether the ship to party partner function is attached to the account group of the sold to party also u can make ship to party mandatory in the customer master partner determination procedure.

      Plz check the partner determination procedure for sales document for the ship to party partner function.

      Step to get the partner determination SPRO --> IMG --> Sales & Distribution --> Basic Function --> Partner Determination --> Set up partner determination.

    Hi Rakesh,

    As per SAP standard setting ship to party will be determined from Sold to party master , if that is maintained. I suggest to copy Standard and test again.

    Also ,hope you have not made any changes to the partner determination procedure fro Sales Document at header Level. This will also impact .

    Sharing a few useful link for more clarity :--
