    first of all you can check note 459350 and the IMG documentation you find in trx : OLME > partner determination

    - you define partner determination schemas and assign them to account groups :

    you can assign different partner schemas to account groups for the purchasing organization, plant, and vendor sub-range levels

    if necessary.

    -you make the partner settings for purchasing documents:

    Specify which partner roles you wish to use - and which of them are mandatory roles

    Partner schemas enable you to group various partner roles. You can specify that certain roles in a schema are mandatory, i.e. may not be changed after entry.

    You can assign these partner schemas to different purchasing document types. This has the effect that only the roles of this schema can be maintained in documents belonging to this document type.

    If the user makes no specification with regard to the defined mandatory roles when entering a relevant purchasing document, his or her attention will be drawn to this fact by the appearance of a system message or an additional dialog box.

    You have the option of defining different partner schemas at the different data retention levels of the vendor master record.

    For example, you can have a different ordering address at the more specific level "purchasing organization/vendor sub-range/plant" than at the more general level "purchasing organization".
