Item category determined by sold to account
I have a client who wants to determine the item category in a sales order based on the sold to account. In most cases this client is using the TAS process for all materials, (they have 10000u2019s of materials) but for one specific sold to account they want to use TAB. The only solution I can propose is the creation of an own table where the sold to account and item category can be defined and then a small development in a user exit which reads this table to determine if item category should be different to the one proposed in the material master. I can not believe that there is not a standard off the shelf solution in SAP.
Has any one else experienced this problem.
Thanks for a short reply.
