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.

Please comment.

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 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]
