 Determination of EDI Sold-To Party


The system must determine the EDI sold-to party for any self-billing document transmitted, in order to carry out all further steps in processing the data. It uses the transmitted vendor number to do this. The sender can send partner description and/or unloading point, as additional information to allow more precise determination. The purpose of this is to determine the SD sold-to party using the transmitted data.


The settings made in table T661W are the same as those used for processes other than SD self-billing, for example, inbound delivery schedules.


  • The sender must transmit a vendor number.

  • The sold-to party must be entered in the table T661W in Customizing for Sales and Distribution, under Start of the navigation path Sales Next navigation step Sales Next navigation step Documents Next navigation step Scheduling Next navigation step Agreements with Delivery Next navigation step Schedules Next navigation step Control EDI Inbound Next navigation step Processing Next navigation step Execute Sold-To Party Assignment for Release Orders End of the navigation path .

  • You must make the required system and IDoc settings for the sold-to party (Basis IDoc settings and SD self-billing settings) as described below.


The system determines the sold-to party for the EDI transmission. It takes the information from the EDI transmission:

  • vendor number (mandatory)

  • partner description (optional)

  • unloading point (optional)

and uses this information to look for an entry in the table T661W. If a suitable entry is found, the system takes the sold-to party to be used for further processing of the transmission.


You carry out the following to enable determination of sold-to party:

EDI-Relevant Settings for the Vendor (mandatory)

EDI-Relevant Settings for the Partner Description

EDI-Relevant Settings for the Unloading Point .

Application-specific settings for the sold-to party inbound parameters. See also Processing Inbound Self-Billing Documents .
