I have a question related to cproject I hope someone can help me.

We would like to use customer and sold-to-party fields for a project. When we select these field , 'BP' values are retieved. We would like customer values ( data from ERP) are showed in this matchcode, Is this possible? ( link customer field to ERP).

In the case only BP values can be retrieved from these fields, how can I difference from employee and customer?

I'll appreciate any help!

Thanks a lot,

The standard search help would show only the Business Partners for these fields. If you want to use these fields, you will have to create corresponding BPs for your customers.

A work around for this would be to have different number range / numbering convention for BP as customers and BPs as employees. For e.g. use C0XXXXXXXX for customers and use E0XXXXXXXXXX for employees.

You may also check out the search criteria base on BP roles in the same search help as another work around.

Let me know if this helps.
