hi,

if you are creating a commo dis chan say 00 and refer the rest of the dis channel to this and create / extend that customer to 00 ie then he can buy the products mentioned on all those dis channels. and if you do not want any customer of 10 or 20 to buy other dis channel products then dont refer these to 00. Otherway would be since customer can buy 10, 20 create another common dis cha, 01. Make 10 and 20 refer it, create /extend customers to 01. In this case also the customer cannot buy the rest of 5 dis chan products.

Thanks for efforts to you both but i still have a doubt regarding assignment to common dist and div .What may be the real usage of it other than reducing the multiplication of Master data. Do u guys see any other use apart form the above.

hi,

the main purpose however is to reduce duplication of master data maintainence other words to say simplication or sharing of master data.

here in this case when we use common dist channel and div for different sales area of the customer only thing we need to maintain differently is Sales Area Data which is not common for all other areas ....Is this OK ....or am i need to know something else

Hi,

I think you are right, however to avoide all confusion better take it as, you need to define all sales area. And when you deffine one sales area which is common for others, you don't have to define those sales areas.

Now again you need to define other sales areas which doesn't come under the scope of common dist chn and div.
