Thank you for visiting SAP Community to get answers to your questions. Since you're asking a question here for the first time, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with, as it provides tips for preparing questions that draw responses from our members. Feel free to take our Q&A tutorial at as well, as that will also help you when preparing questions for the community.

For example, you can:

* Outline what steps you took to find answers (and why they weren't helpful).

* Make sure you've applied the appropriate tags.

If you don't apply the correct tags, the right experts won't see your question to answer it.

Should you wish, you can revise your question by selecting Actions, then Edit.

The more details you provide, the more likely it is that members will be able to respond.

I also recommend that you include a profile picture. By personalizing your profile, you encourage readers to respond:

One last piece of advice: You submitted four questions at once with the same tag. Please consider submitting one at a time and waiting a little bit, to give members a chance to read and respond without having multiple questions coming into their feed at the same time.

Kind regards,

The best practise would be to set the same number for the customer and for the BP. For more information, please read the KBA 2430380 - Same number for BP and customer/vendor in CVI
