Not able to link Vendor and Customer

I have created a vendor (V) and customer (C) without linking.

Now when I edit the customer to associate vendor to it - when i add the vendor in 'Vendor' field and when saving it is giving error saying Vendor V is not linked to Customer C. This is happening other way round also. When I am creating Vendor and trying to give customer C in 'Customer' field, it is giving error - Customer C is not linked to Vendor V.

What is happening here ? Am I doing anything wrong ? Which one to create first ? How exactly to associate ?

    The message is only information and not error

    Goahead inspite of information messages and link between vendor and customer

    See that you selected Vendor/Customer link check box is selected at company code data

    You can start with customer first as well, no issue

    Hi,

    Ignore warnings and proceed with the same.

    Make sure that you have selected Clg with Cust in vendor master and Clg with Vend in customer master.

    I don't see any check box with name Clg with Cust in Create Vendor: Control section. I just see a Customer field in Account Control tab but no check box

      Hi,

      In customer master go to company code data there in tab "Payment Transaction" you will get a option "Clearing with Vendor"

      and in Vendor master under payment transactions accounting " Clrg with Cust." is the option.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,

    I have tried assigning vendor number in customer master and customer number in vendor master in other SAP instance. But with my current SAP system Im not able to do that. Its giving same message 'Customer is not Linked to Vendor' .

    Why does this message come ?
