RE:[sap-log-sd] Common Distribution of Channels and Assign SORG,

Hi Saps,

This is to avoid data redundancy. When a company has the same information/details for various distribution channel, then it would suffice if it creates only one master data instead of 3 and create the other two with reference to the first one.

The name convention 02, 03 would be to only identify the channel through which the material is being distributed, but the rest of the properties would be the same as that of the first one. In a Large sized company with thousands of distribution channel, this is just a way to reduce the number of master data records being created.

Subject: Common Distribution of Channels and Assign SORG,


When we are doing the config. settings in IMG assigning sorg, dch and plant, the F1 help for dch says:

Reference for customer and material masters
Specifies a distribution channel that you want to use as a reference for customer and material master data for other distribution channels.

You can specify one distribution channel as the source of customer and material master data for other distribution channels. You need then only to maintain the data in one place.

01 01
02 01
03 01
04 04

In this example, only distribution channels 01 and 04 have customer and material master data defined. Distribution channels 01, 02, and 03 share the master data that you defined for distribution channel 01. Distribution channel 04 has its own master data. When you create a sales order in distribution channel 03, the system checks the customer and material master data against the data defined for distribution channel 01

In that case, why do we again need to assign common dist channels specially?

Thanks and regards,
