Number of customers may run in to tens of thousands in certain industry verticals like retail of various consumer products. It is very tedious not to mention time-consuming to maintain master data for each customer. SAP has provision of one time customer which provides good functionality to minimize dependence on permanent master data.
Just like normal customer master creation, you create one-time customer by using account group ‘CPD’ and maintain general data, company code data & ales area data.
When you create a sales order, specify your one-time customer (ID) as sold-to-party and system will prompt to enter new customer details as shown under:
Enter one time customer id & change customer name, address & contact details in pop-up screen and proceed.
Details for one time customer will appear on the sales order. Proceed with sales order
Similarly, we can use one-time customer id and enter new customer details for another sales order.
