Sales order creation

Dear one and all,

Very basic questions about sales area:

When creating a sales order, you enter sold-to-party and press enter. A pop-up menu appears that displays all the customers sales areas. However, these are different from the sales areas defined for customer if you check it in XD01>customer's sales areas.

1. Why are they different?

2. Can a sold-to-party be defined in a sales order for a sales area for which it don't exit?

3. How is the sales area determined in a sales order linked to the Sold-to-party, Sales document type and the material?

Thanks & regards

If you are using common distribution channel (VOR1) and/or common division (VOR2), then the customer is created for only a particular sales area and no need to extend the customer to all the other sales areas (sales org is same and only dist channel and/or divsion are different) because the common concept is being used. A sale order can be created for the customer in any of the sales areas to which the common distribution channel and/or common division are referencing.
