Vendor Sub-Range: 

Vendor Sub-Ranges (VSRs) subdivide a vendor's total product range according to a variety of criteria. 

A vendor sub-range (VSR) can be breakdown of regions/product lines/locations/ whatever that we want to create for the individual vendor master record. For instance, even in the same plant we need a different vendor partnering setup because we have different (OA) vendors (order forms) for some products that we purchase from a vendor than for other products. 

  • You can specify which materials or articles belong to which VSR in the info records of the relevant vendor. 

  • You can also specify the sequential position of the material in the vendor sub-range, so that the items of a purchase order are sorted into the sequence in which your vendor expects them. 

  • Vendor sub-ranges can be set up for any vendor master record as well. 

  • With the help of Vendor sub range: you can maintain different purchasing data and payment terms etc... 

  • In addition to the purchasing data or partners that have been created for a purchasing organization, you can enter different data or partners in the vendor master record for each vendor sub-range, for example, different ordering addresses, terms of payment, or partner roles. 


In Customizing for Logistics General, you can specify whether you wish to maintain VSRs in the Business partner.

Accounting Entries:


As we all know there are Suppliers who can supply internationally like 1 Supplier where headquarters in USA and branches in all other countries, here if they have many branches then there will be many conditions and many different values like.

E.g.: Different currency and payment terms, Incoterms and lead time 

Whereas in vendor purchasing view we can maintain only 1 value but here as per country the currency and payment terms will change. 

So here SAP we have option called vendor sub-range and this field helps to maintain different purchasing views for 1 vendor like 3-4 different currency, Payment terms and incoterms. 

Hope this blogpost will be help full
