Define Dunning Areas


In this step, dunning areas can be defined. Dunning areas are used if several organizational units are responsible for carrying out dunning within one company code. These organizational units are referred to as dunning areas. The dunning area can correspond, for example, to a profit center, a distribution channel, a sales organization or a business area.

The individual dunning areas can use different procedures or the same dunning procedure.

The dunning areas with the required dunning procedures are to be entered into the customer or vendor master record if you use different dunning procedures.

Otherwise, the system uses the standard dunning procedure. The dunning area is then entered in the line item. The system enters the dunning area into the master record automatically with the corresponding data.
