Contact person partner determination in billing

Hi, I want to send the billings by mail to the address of customer master contact person:

I´ ve made the following configuration:

In  trans. VOPAN in billing header I´ve created the partner function ZF,assigned partner type AP and the account group 0001. I´ve assigned the partner function ZF to the partner det. procedure FK and partner det. procedure to billing type ZFA1. Also in VOPAN customer header I´ve assigned the partner function ZF to the partner det. procedure AG. In customer master => sales area => partner functions, I´ve created de partner function ZF and assigned de contact person number I want to send the mail.

But when I create a billing type ZFA1 the partner fucntion ZF does not apear in the billing header partner, only appears the partner functions sold to party, bill to party and payer. I think it´s something about partner type AP beacause if a create a partner function ZM with partner type KU it work.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Contact customer should be assigned for the sales order header first and after you maintain Parter determination for Billing header, the contact customer from Sales header will be determined into Billing

    Contact customer will not automatically determined without it being determined at the sales order header

    Can you check whether you are getting Partner function in Customer master ----Contact Person Tab ---Partner Function. Can you try same thing using Contact Person Partner function CP and let us know if it still didn't get determined in billing.

    Regards

      Dear TW,

      Yes, Amit has explained it very well.

      In one of my implementations projects, I was asked to have one contact person to multiple customers. Let me explain you business scenario:

      X - my client is the supplier India's Heavy electronic manufactures. This manufacture has many plants. In SAP we have created them as various customer masters. But, for all these customers the contact person was supposed to be one. Since, that person is SME and POC for such type of machineries. So, in order to have clear visibility we played a bit with the name of the contact person or some times with his role (Ofcourse by taking client confirmation after explaining the logic behind it)

      I hope this will pretty much fit into your question.

      Regards, Sai Krishna.

    Hi,

    Check whether the contact person is populating in SO or not (at header level)? If yes, check whether your partner determination at billing header.

    HI Teodoro,

    first create a contact person and assign the same in the contact person tab in the customer master then you have assign cp in vopan to sales document header and billing header. so that it will popoup while raising billing document.

    Hi ,

    In this scenario your copy control only copies the partner function available in Delivery and sales order. it does not redetermine here . so how come it will fetch the new contact person in billing document.

    So better you need to assign in in sales order and copy from there to delivery and Invoice . else you can do assign a new routine in copy control for checking the partner function from customer master  in invoice . but it may harm in business where ever many partner function mentions in customer master. Need so much testing.

    So check you requirement and do the setting .

    Hope it will help you.

    Regards

    Hi All,

    I can get the output for CP to work for Order confirmation in VA01 and for billing output in VF01, but I cannot get it to work for delivery confirmation, I get this error when creating the output in VL02N.

    Partner 1323 does not exist for partner function AP

    Message no. VN006

    Diagnosis

    Partner does not exist for the partner function selected for this

    transaction.

    The partner 1323 have been created for AP as it works fine with order confirmation and billing output, so I do not understand the error, does anyone have any idea what I am missing ?

    Thanks and best regards
