Hello,

there are also other relationships which are sales area dependent. The reason why Contact Person Relationships have an own assignment block is the importance of the Contact Person Relationship in CRM.

The other reason that there are some specific fields and the time-dependency of the contact person relationship.

There is at least one other relationship-type with an own assignment block ... the shareholder-relationship.

Best regards,

Hi Amish,

The contact person relationship has a sales area dependent data as there is view assigned to the contact person relationship.

If you do not want the slaes area assignment, then you will have to copy the contact person relationship into a custom one and remove the views which are not needed by you.

1. Navigate to the transaction BUBA.

2. Copy the relationship category BUR001 into a custom relationship category.

3. Select the custom relationship category and click on Category -> Views

4. Remove the views which you do not need.

Best Regards,

Vamsi.

Hi Amish,

Contact assignment block is specifically to assign a contact person relationship to a sold to party or a Business partner.

There can be different contact persons for an organization based on the location (Sales Area) in actual, thats the reason there is a provision to enter sales org data for a contact person.

For example: A company which is defined as a sold to party may have different contact persons for its different sales offices defined in the system.

Also there are other relationships that can be maintained for a BP which is done via relationship assignment block.

Regards,
