Sales Tax Identification Number Determination Problem



I need solution for VAT reg. number problem in billing document.

I had scenario were VAT reg. number to be picked from sold-to party hence i made below configuration.

The VAT reg. number is printed on every invoice made by the entities, based on the customer master data and configuration table (Sales and Distribution => Basic Functions => Taxes => “Maintain Sales Tax Identification Number Determination”). In this table, in the "Tax number" field I maintained as (A) for respective sales origination , according to this the tax number and tax classification are generally copied from the sold-to party. The tax number is copied according to the 'country of destination relevant for taxes'.

But when i create a billing document for export scenario with different sold-to party in one country and ship-to party in other country ( for both partners VAT values are maintained in customer master ) the VAT reg. number is not populating it remains blank in billing document.But origin of Tax field is showing as sold-to party (C) in billing document.

I need the VAT reg. number to be populated according to sold-to party.

So, Can any one suggest how i can get the sold-to party VAT reg. number to be populated in billing document.

Thank you,
