Common Distribution Channel and Common Division

Updated May 18, 2018

What is purpose of maintaining common distribution channels and common divisions?

Common Distribution Channel and Common Division are maintained so that if any master data like customer or material maintained with respect to one distribution channel can be used in other DCh. It prevents the multiplication of master records.

Eg: A customer is created for say sales area 1000/20/00 then the same customer can be used in sales area 1000/30/00 if we maintain 20 as common distribution channel. Hence no need for extending the customers...the same for materials also.

    We can define Common Dist. Ch. on the basis of Sales Area. We have to define The common DC on the basis of Sales org. & Dist. Ch. Similarly for common Division.

    How do we define a common distribution channel in the system for different sales areas.
