Partner Determination

In the following menu options, you define the rules according to which

automatic partner determination is to be carried out.

When creating a customer master record, the SAP System proposes the

allowed partner functions to be maintained. According to the rules

defined here, the partners are adopted from the customer master records

of the sold-to parties into the sales and distribution documents.

You have to edit the following points for the function "Partner


o Partner function

You define with the help of the partner function which functions

exist for the partners (customers, vendors, employees, and so on) in

your system.

o Partners allowed for each account group

You allocate the permitted partner functions to every account group


o Function conversion

You can define the key of the partner functions according to the


o Partner object

Partners are possible in the customer master record and the

so-called partner objects in the sales and distribution documents.

Select a partner object and define the rules for partner

determination for this object.

o Partner determination procedures

You define partner determination procedures which contain all the

allowed partner functions for every partner object.

o Procedure allocation

You allocate each partner determination procedure to an actual

partner object using a key, for example, to an account group

customer or a sales document type.

Partners are contained both in the customer master records and in the

sales and distribution documents. You define partner determination for

each of these objects individually.

The following partner objects exist:

o customer master record

o sales document

- header

- item

o delivery

- header

o billing document

- header

- item

o sales activity

After defining the partner functions, select one partner object after

the other and define the partner determination procedures for the

selected object.

Only when you have checked and, if necessary, changed the partner

determination for all the partner objects is the function "Partner

determination" completed.
