Billing block at the customer level.
I have defined a billing block and have assigned that block to a customer for a particular sales area. After that I created an order for that customer. I was assuming that the Billing Block field on the sales order will be populated with the block I assigned at the customer level. But that is not happening. Am I missing some step or is this the standard process, that the billing block assigned at the customer level will not appear on the sales order and this comes into picture only when I try to create the invoice?
Your guess is right.
The billing block you assigned to the customer will come into the picture only when you are trying to create the billing document.
If you want the Billing block to be populated on the order, you can achieve it by user exit coding in the include MV45AFZZ.
Hope you r clear.
