problem with sales order
I have this problem while creating the sales order. I created a customer-7000. i defined all the partner funtions, assigned them to the account group, defined a partner determination procedure, placed the P.Funtions in procedure and also assigned the procedure to my account group. Now when i am creating the order, in the top sold to party field when i enter the 7000 number( my customer no) it says " No customer master record exists for Sold to Party 7000".Previously i was given some useful advice here in the forum regarding the same problem and i tried all of 'em but in vain. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong here please kindly help. I m not able to put one step forward here.
Thank u in advance.

Check the partner determination procedure and the assignment of partner functions to the account group etc. Always ensure u have standard partner function SP in ur list of partner functions of the partner determination procedure.
or else do not create new partner functions and instead use the SP,SH,BP,PY standard functions and assign these to u r account group ans use further.
check this OSS Note 316323
The system issues message VP 199: "No customer master record exists for sold-to party &".
