Sales Documents Do Not Support Multiple Addresses for Business Partner

Background

In SAP S/4HANA Cloud, the multiple address functionality of Business Partner (BP) allows one BP to have multiple addresses. However, when you assign a partner function (on the Partners tab) during sales document creation, the partner function can only use the BP’s standard address.

Solution

· Solution 1

Create a unique BP for each unique address and give that BP the correct role (for example, customer).

· Solution 2 (available in S/4HANA Cloud 1811 and later versions)

Create multiple customers and assign them to the same BP. Based on such operations, you can pick a non-standard address of the BP during sales order creation.

Notes

· To assign multiple customers to a BP, use the Manage Customer Master Data app based on role “SAP_BR_BUPA_MASTER_SPECIALIST”.

· To create a sales order, use the Create Sales Orders app based on role “SAP_BR_INTERNAL_SALES_REP”.

      Hello Jonas,

      Thank you for compiling this. I am interested in more details. With the second option 'Create multiple customers and assign them to the same BP' are you suggesting adding them as partner functions like multiple sold-to party?

      Thanks again.

      Hi Sarab,

      I had tried to add the additional customers as multiple Ship-To Party/Bill-To Party in Partner Function. Maybe not applicable for sold-to party.

      BR,
