How do you change default partners in MASSD

Issue: You have a default partner for example contact person for a range of customers. You need to find a method of extracting all those partners, selecting the correct partner to change and change the partner number.

Solution: You could use an LSMW, a CATT, a batch input, or a custom program, but the easiest solution is to simply use “Mass change” – the transaction MASSD.

Proceed as follows:

TransactionMASSD

Object:  KNA1-Customers

  • Customer Master Sales Data – KNVV – CustomerCustomer Master Sales Data – KNVV – Sales Org.Customer Master Sales Data – KNVV – Distr. Channel
  • Customer Master Sales Data – KNVV – Division

  • Customer Master Partner Functions – KNVP – Personnel No.

Component to be changed:

  • Customer Master Partner Functions – KNVP – Default partner
  • Customer Master Partner Functions – KNVP – Personnel No.

Screen navigation:

  • Change with display – this permits you to see the values (only really worthwhile doing if you have no more than +- 1000 records to change)
  • Set your new default values which will be applied to all records. (Note this is a mass change of default values not a variable value. For variable values use an LSMW)
  • Select the “Make changes” icon,
  • Save in the background. (you can go to SM37 to view the background job).
