Multiple Addresses configuration in Sales Partner Determination

In this blog I’ll introduce the address determination logic in Partner determination.

Introduction

When multiple address handling is active, you can configure address determination on two levels by performing the following activities in Customizing under Sales and Distribution -> Basic Functions -> Partner Determination -> Set Up Partner Determination:

  • Set Up Partner Determination for Sales Document Header
  • Set Up Partner Determination for Sales Document Item
  • Set Up Partner Determination for Delivery
  • Set Up Partner Determination for Billing Header
  • Set Up Partner Determination for Billing Item

On the partner determination procedure level, two fields can be used for address determination configuration: Address Determination and All Addresses Allowed.

From above explanation, we can see that All addresses allowed has the highest priority. If all three fields are left blank/empty, the system determines addresses from the address overview (containing general addresses) in BP master.
