    Hi Siva,

    Based in Germany ZA is a wire and cable manufacturing company, they produce different kind of cables both for general customers and for corporate clients. ZA wire and cables have different product range like general wiring, telephone cables, power cables, auto cables etc.

    In March 2011 they have started business in US and set a new legal entity ZAUS, the nature of work of ZAUS is little bit different than ZACO. In US so many cable manufacturing companies are operating and there is so much demand of quality raw material for cable manufacturing, ZA cables find US market ideal for providing raw material, they are focusing just corporate clients in US and instead of manufacturing cables they are manufacturing raw material ie PVC compound and copper road for cable manufacturing companies.

    Division to Sales Organization

    5, I have created different divisions ie

    1, MC(medium voltage cable)
    2, TC(telephone cables)
    3, WL(welding cable)
    4, GW(General wiring)
    5, AU(Auto cable)

    and assign them to sales org ZSAG(Germany)

    I have also created divisions
    1, CR(Copper Rod)
    2, PV(Pvc compound)

    and assigned them to ZLTD(US)

    Set up Sales Area

    6, Sales org ZSAG, dis chnl RE(Retail), Div TC(telephone cable)

    Sales org ZSAG, dis chnl RE(Retail), Div GW(general wiring)
    Sales org ZSAG, dis chnl RE(Retail), Div MC(Medium Voltage cable)
    Sales org ZSAG, dis chnl CO(Corporate), Div AU(Auto Cable)

    Sales org ZLTD, dis chnl CO(Corporate), Div PV(PVC Compound)
    Sales org ZLTD, dis chnl CO(Corporate), Div CR(Copper Rod)

    Sales Office to Sales Area

    ie. ZLTD/CO/PV/3031(sales off USA)
    ZSAG/RE/MC/3032(Sales off Germany)

    Sales Group to Sales Office

    8, I have assigned previously creates sales groups to the relevant sales offices

    Sales group EL (Electrical sales) to sales off 3032 Germany and sales group RW(Raw material) to sales of 3031 US

    Sales Organization + Distribution Channel to Plant

    Warehouse Number to Plant / Storage Location

    10, Assigned previously created warehouse to plant and storage location PLBR/STRG/786 (Germany) and PLNY/STRU/787 (US)

    Shipping Point to Plant

    More quiz questions

    Can you assign multiple company codes to a Sales Organization ? If not why ?
    NO, A sales org is hirarchically under a company code. Company code represents an independent legal and financial enitity and a Sorg is with in a Comp Code.

    Can you assign multiple Sales Organizations to a company code ? If yes, give a business scenario.
    Yes. A company code can span a wide area – like a country with multiple Sorgs –
    East,West(region based), IBM, Federal etx(large accounts based) or
    a region with multiple countries – US, EMEA (Europe.Middle East, AFRICA), APAC (Asia,Pacific) etc. with SOrgs for each of the sub-regions mentioned.

    Can you assign multiple distribution channels to a Sales Organization ? If yes, give a business scenario which would require such an assignment.
    YES. Typical distrib channels are Retail, Wholesale, Govt, Ecom, IntraCompany, etc.
    All of these channels are associated with Sales Orgs which are in turn defined most commonly by regions.

    Can you assign multiple divisions to a sales organization ? If yes, give a business scenario which would require such an assignment.
    YES. Divisions in SAP are defined by products that they are associated with or
    the products define deivisions. A sales org defined by regions most commonly is
    associated with all products in that region and hence all divisions.

    Can you set up multiple Sales Areas using the same Sales Organization ? ( For example, can you set up 1000/01/01 and also 1000/10/01 ? )

    YES,Since Sales org is associated with multiple dist channels and divsions, a
    all combinations of Sales org/Dis ch/div can bes etup based on requirements in that
    Sorg.

    Can you assign a single sales office to multiple sales areas ? If yes, why would you want to do that ?
    YES. It is practical to associate a Sales office to a Sales org but SAP doesn’t limit.
    The sales office can be associated with all Sales areas of the sales org.

    Can a sales group belong to multiple sales offices ? If yes, give a business scenario which would require it

    Sales groups are hirarchically under a sales office. SAP doesn’t seem to prevent
    same Sales grp being associated with different sales offices. A scenario is that
    a sales group has different responsibilities under different Sales Offices that are
    virtual like in Atlanta, there could be two Sales Offices under the same roof working
    on IBM account and South East region and the sales group works in both Offices.
    Seems like a stretch!!

    Can the same shipping point belong to multiple plants ?

    Yes. Different plants can sometimes be inthe same vicinity or region and share a
    shipping point.

    Assignments

    When I tried to assign Plant to Company code 1000 my plant was already assigned to company code 3000.
    Deleted this entry and created an entry for company code 1000 and plant ZMNJ

    Assign Sales Org to company code

    My sales org WMD1 was already assigned to company code 9090, I think its because I copied Sales Org from 0001 which is assigned to 9090

    Deleting this entry and creating new entry for Sales Org WMD1 and CoCd 1000
    There was no delete option so changed company code to 1000

    Assign Distribution Channel to Sales Org

    This already existed. So did not change anything

    Assign Division to Sales Org

    This assignment was already existing

    Set up Sales Area

    Again the sales area was existing for my elements

    Assign Sales office to Sales Area
    Created new assignment by using new entries

    Assign Sales Group to Sales Area

    Created new assignment by using new entries

    Assign Sales Org – Dist Ch – Plant
    When I created new entry “Text Missing” for Plant

    Assignment of Warehouse number to storage location

    My Storage Location is ZMED and Plant is ZMNJ
    Warehouse is ZEW

    Since this assignment does not exist I tried to create a new one

    And I am getting an error

    It won’t let me edit the text in warehouse no description

    To get around it I copied Central warehouse and changed Plant and Sloc on it

    Not sure if this is correct
