Allocation of Business Partner to a profit center
Is it possible to allocate a BP to one or more Profit centers when creating a BP Master in SAP;such that, on creation of a marketing document the Profit center is directly picked up instead of selecting it.

Projects can be associated with a Business Partner in the Master data definition but not Profit Center.
Profit Center have associated distribution rules and are linked to G/L account or a transaction at the row level.
You could do this. Create a UDF in the BP Master to enter the profit Center information.
In the Sales Order Rows..in the Profit Center field create a Formatted Search to pull the Profit Center from the BP Master UDF
Example: Let us say your Profit Center User field on the BP Master is called U_PC
then your Formatted Search on the Marketing document would be
<B> <Font Color=BLUE> SELECT T0.U_PC FROM [dbo\].[OCRD\] T0 WHERE T0.CardCode = $\[$4.0.0]
Set it to Auto Refresh on Item Code ....check Display Saved Values
If you want 2 Profit Centers on the BP Master and the user would select it in the Marketing document then let us presume your UDF's are U_PC1 and U_PC2,
the FMS would be
<B> <Font Color=BLUE>
SELECT T0.U_PC1 FROM [dbo\].[OCRD\] T0 WHERE T0.CardCode = $\[$4.0.0]
SELECT T0.U_PC2 FROM [dbo\].[OCRD\] T0 WHERE T0.CardCode = $\[$4.0.0]
