    HI

     

    The Number Column is Partner Function Number

     

    if the number is Internal system will generate the number after you save the Customer master or if it is external it will come at the time creating the Customer master

     

    It is useful at the time of creating the Sale order , Delivery , billing & payment

     

    I think you know that responsibility partner function

     

    If you want more details please search in Google

     

     

    Regards,

    Prasanna

      Already no. 1 (3rd column)  is assigned to the "Sold-to-Party" Partner Function in the partner Function tab. So should i "SAVE" the document directly w/o assigning any number to BP, SP and PY Partner Functions ?

        Hi Rahul,

         

         

        you have to give the numbers other wise system will  through "Data is incomplete"

         

        maintain numbers then save it.

         

        if system through error message like" Customer is not defined for partner function SP (table TPAKD)

         

        then check how you mention number ranges for Customer A/c group(internal or external)

        if its external you have to give the number before creation of customer master in XD01

         

        How many partner function assigned to the same account group which you have created in partner determination procedure

         

        (means SP ,SH,BP,PY are useing the same account group or not)

         

        Regards,

        Krishna.

          Dear krish_

           

          When i am assigning "Number" (3rd column) to the Partner Function (Sold to Party) manually, and saving it, it is still giving error "Data is Incomplete; check".  BP, PY and SP Functions have freezed columns so i can assign number to only Sold to Party prtnr Function. Kindly suggest.

            Hi

             

            At the time of creating the Customer Master if it is external , in initial screen (XD01) you need to enter the customer number then by-default system will take that number in that partner function Tab to all the partner functions

             

            if it is Internal , no need to enter the number , after saving the customer master system will generate automatically

             

            and also try to check the Partner determination procedure

             

            Regards,

            Prasanna

              Dear Prasanna,

               

              The "Initial Screen" on XD01 says that the number range in internal, so no need to input customer no.

              But when i am saving on Partner Function tab, without entering the "number" (3rd column), it is still giving error "Data in incomlete;check". Where could be the error ?

                HI

                 

                Kindly check the following steps:

                 

                Create Customer Account Group : SPRO > Financial Accounting (New)>Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable->Customer Accounts>Master Data-->Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)

                 

                Create Number Ranges for Customer Accounts : SPRO> Financial Accounting (New)>Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable->Customer Accounts>Master Data-->Create Number Ranges for Customer Accounts ( Don't TICK if it is Internal)

                 

                Assign Number Ranges to Customer Account Groups: SPRO > Financial Accounting (New)>Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable->Customer Accounts>Master Data-->Assign Number Ranges to Customer Account Groups

                 

                Partner Function Determination:

                 

                Menu path : SPRO >Sales and Distribution>Basic Functions>Partner Determination>Set Up Partner Determination

                 

                Set Up Partner Determination for Customer Master

                 

                Suppose for example Account group is WXYZ

                 

                Create Partner Determination Procedure (ABCD) and assign the partner function to that procedure {SP,BP,PY & SH}

                 

                Partner Deternimation Procedure: In this Step you need to assign the Partner Deternimation procedure to Accout Group

                Account Group- partner Function: in this step you need to assign SP,SH, BP & PY to Account group

                 

                Regards,

                Prasanna

            hi rahul,

             

            you need not to give any number for sold to party while creating the customer if the number range assigned to customer is internal. after creation of customer you can see the customer number in XD02 in number column of the partner function.

             

            and i think in your case the customer number is internal i.e. system generated.

             

            now coming to the BP PY and SH if in your case the sold to party and ship to party are same then number for them will also generate by system.

             

             

             

            Thanks

             

            Ashwini K.
