Function documentation Vendors: Vendor Hierarchy and Purchase Order Processing Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


Vendor hierarchies are used in purchasing documents for pricing and subsequent settlement. When you process a purchase order for a vendor that is assigned to a vendor hierarchy, the system automatically determines the corresponding hierarchy path.

The hierarchy path shows the relationship of a vendor to the chain of nodes all the way up to the top level of the hierarchy. The system uses partner determination to build the hierarchy path in the purchase order.
