There are many things we don’t notice as long as nothing changes, right? Think about it, we don’t always pre-empt changes whether it is household items such as sugar and milk or business items like paper and ink. This is because we have habits or default settings.

The same is true for business processes and settings. If you are using business partner (BP) catalog numbers, you may have multiple catalog numbers for a given item for a certain business partner. It might be for seasonal occasions or when special editions are launched, whatever the reason, there may be multiple catalog numbers for that specific item. To increase efficiency and enhance user experience, SAP Business One enables you to set a default catalog number per item per business partner:

Business Partner Catalog Number  Business Partner Catalog Number

You can do it by selecting the relevant catalog number either on the BP tab or the Items tab, and then click the ‘Set as Default’ button. The default catalog number is marked in bold in both tabs. In the Items tab a new column ‘Is Default’ indicates the assigned status.

The default catalog number would appear automatically in all marketing documents created for the given business partner:

Business Partner Catalog Number

Whenever a specific item is assigned with more than one catalog number per given BP, the first catalog number is automatically set as the default. You can change this setting at any time.

Available in Web Client for SAP Business One 10.0, and SAP Business One 10.0 version for SAP HANA. Please get in touch if you would like to upgrade to version 10.0.
