Hi

We have one Supplier (Vendor) who has two plants supplying to our plant. They need our purchase order should bear their plant addresses when we order. We order some materials with the Supplier - from 1000 Plant and some materials from 1001 Plant.  We have only one BP for this Supplier. How can we have multiple address for single vendor in SAP S/4 HANA.

Hi  Dear,

We had the same business requirement . Please find the solution 

To set up partner determination for delivery in SAP, follow these steps:

  1. Go to IMG (Implementation Guide) > Sales and Distribution > Basic Functions > Partner Determination > Set up Partner Determination > Set Up Partner Determination for Delivery.
  2. Select El in partner determination procedure and click on partner function.
  3. Here, you can add a new partner function, such as Goods Supplier (GS), to allow different pick-up addresses in the inbound delivery/shipment.

Defining Account Groups for Vendors:

  1. Go to IMG > Financial Accounting > Accounts Receivables and Accounts Payable > Master Data > Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Vendors).
  2. Create a new vendor account group specifically for Goods Suppliers, as only an address is required for these vendors.

Creating Number Ranges for Vendor Accounts:

  1. Go to IMG > Financial Accounting > Accounts Receivables and Accounts Payable > Master Data > Preparations for Creating Supplier Master Data > Create Number Ranges for Vendor Accounts & Assign Number Ranges to Vendor Account Groups.
  2. Create a new number range for the Goods Supplier account group and assign it to that group.

Defining Business Partner Roles:

  1. Go to IMG > Cross-Application Components > SAP Business Partner > Basic Settings > Business Partner Roles > Define BP Roles.
  2. Create a new role specific for Goods Suppliers, such as ZFLVN0 (by copying the standard FLVN01 role).

Defining Number Ranges for Business Partners:

  1. Go to IMG > Cross-Application Components > SAP Business Partner > Basic Settings > Number Ranges and Groupings > Define Number Range & Define Groupings and Assign Number Ranges.
  2. Define a new number range for the Goods Supplier business partner role (ZFLVN0) and assign it to that role.

Configuring Field Attributes per Business Partner Role:

  1. Go to IMG > Cross-Application Components > SAP Business Partner > Basic Settings > Field Groupings > Configure Field Attributes per BP Role > Configure Field Attributes for Each Role Category (0001-3500).
  2. Configure which fields are mandatory for the Goods Supplier role category. For example, set City and Country as mandatory fields for Goods Suppliers.

By following these steps, you can set up the necessary configurations in SAP to handle Goods Suppliers as a separate partner function, account group, and business partner role, with specific number ranges and field requirements.

Hi, Thanks for your update. I understand from the above solution, we need to create another Business Partner as Goods Supplier which is different from Supplier (Vendor) BP Number. If this is the case, business is not agree to this solution, we have proposed the same, but it was declined. They need to have one BP -Vendor with this they want to receive supplies from two different places (of their plants).
