Trading partner is required for consolidation in ECCS or BCS. SAP system, being an integrated system, makes use of the field u201CTrading Partner (TP)u201D and identifies intercompany transactions for the purpose of eliminations etc in consolidation. This TP field is maintained mostly in customer and vendor master records and in some cases in G/L master as well. Document type is not relevant for TP, however some fields need to be activated in order to enable proper postings with TP.
