Hi Prachi,

This process is known as reverse determination. and reversal of the search direction for partner determination uses business partner relationships using the field Reverse Determination within the access sequence customizing setting. Path is IMG>CRM>Basic functions--> Partner Processing

You create a access sequence for partner determination which should have only a single step.

This setting is only relevant when you enter either Business Partner Relationships or BP Relationships by Sales Organization as the source for this single access.

During partner determination using business partner relationships, the system normally looks in a partner's master data for the "Has the ..." relationship, such as "Has the ship-to party". Marking this field sets the system to look for the same relationship, but in the reverse direction, such as "Is the ship-to party".

Leave the field Reverse Determination unmarked to set the system to function as usual.

Mark the field to set it to read relationships in reverse for this single access.

You make the following settings for the access sequence with one single access:

<b>Source: Business Partner Relationships

Details on the source: Ship-to Party

Reverse source (this field): marked</b>

You assign this single access to the partner function Sold-to Party.

For the Ship-to Party, you can have either of the following settings :

1) If the document does not have a preceding document then do not assign any access sequence to the Ship-to-Party partner function or

2) If the document have a preceding document which will pass on the Ship-to Party details to the current one , then you can assign standard Access Sequence 1000 or your own copy of the standard access sequence number 1000.

Hope this would help.
