In the SAP retail system, the plant (store or DC) data is renamed site. We use wb01 / wb02 to maintain the site master instead of setting the plant code in the background configuration as in the manufacturing SAP system.
Generally speaking, there are many stores/DC in retail enterprises, and there are replenishment or stock transfer scenarios between them. Therefore, it is necessary to create internal customer codes or internal supplier codes for stores/DCS at the same time.
We want these internal customer codes or supplier codes to remain the same as the site codes. This blog intent to explain how to realize this requirement.
1, Create a new BP grouping.
We create a new BP grouping code ZNM2, the number range is NM, and select the checkbox ‘External’.
The definition of Number range NM,
select the check box Ext.
2， Create a new customer account group for the internal customer. The number range of this customer account group is the same as the number range of BP grouping ZNM2.
create a new customer account group: NMCU.
The definition of number range for customer account group,
select the checkbox Ext.
Assign the number NM to customer account group NMCU,
3, Linked the customer account group and the BP grouping.
Here we add a new entry：BP grouping ZNM2, Account group NMCU, select the check box Same Numbers (this is very important!). see above screen.
Then go to below configuration,
Here we add a new entry：customer account group NMCU, BP grouping:ZNM2, select the checkbox Same No（This is very important）.
4, Create a Plant Profile Z110 (we copy the standard plant profile 0110).
We assign the BP grouping code ZNM2 to this new plant profile.
5, Execute tcode WB01 to create a new site master using plant profile Z110.
Fill related data and then save it. Then we got below site master NM04,
The site code of this store is NM04, the BP code is NM04 and the customer code is NM04 too.
If we want to create internal vendor code for a site (for example for a DC) and the vendor code is the same as site code, then we need to create new vendor account group, and assign a same number range to it, then link the vendor account group with the BP grouping code.
