Address Information Possibly Unavailable for Partner Type Personnel (PE)

In SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud, address information may be unavailable for partner functions of partner type Personnel (PE) in some scenarios. Example partner functions include Sales Employee and Employee Responsible.

Scenario 1: Sales document related apps

When you open a sales document related app (for example, Manage Sales Quotations), in most cases you cannot see address information for partner functions of partner type Personnel (PE).

However, the address can be shown for such a partner function if you have created a document specific address.

You still can view the initial address if you display the document by displaying the document via WebGui transaction sales document app (e.g. Display Sales Quotations – VA23, Display Sales Orders – VA03)

In addition, if you are using SAP S/4HANA, the address is available in sales documents created through backend transactions. For example, if you have created a sales order using VA01 and an address has been determined for the sales employee, this address is always visible in the sales order. Then you can view the address in apps (such as Change Sales Orders, Display Sales Orders, and Manage Sales Orders) and backend transactions (such as VA02 and VA03).

Scenario 2: Custom CDS views and Apps

Address information is unavailable for partner functions of partner type personnel (PE), if you create your own custom views or apps based on certain CDS views. These views include but are not limited to the following:

  • I_SDDocumentPartner
  • I_SalesOrderPartner
  • I_SalesDocumentPartner
  • I_SDDocumentCompletePartners
