3045906 - Technical error during activation after creating a sales area


You can enhance your organizational structure by using the Organizational Structure app to create a new sales area based on an existing entity. When you activate the enhanced content, the following error message is displayed: “A technical error has occurred during activation. SAP is working on the same and will restart the system once the error has been resolved”.


Involved technical objects:

Error message in activation log: “Fill out all required entry fields.”

Building Block: BD5 (example only, may happen for other building blocks as well)

Solution ID: Z_CUST_ZA

File name: SMBA0_V_T683V_J04_OP.TXT

IMG activity: SIMG_CFMENUOLSDFP4 (Assign Pricing Procedures (Determination in Sales Docs))

Customizing Object: V_T683V (Det. of Pricing Procedures in Sales Docs.)




When creating a new sales area (sales organization - distribution channel - division) based on an existing entity, the function inherits data from the existing entity. This also applies for the pricing procedure determination, which is the configuration for how the system determines pricing procedures for sales documents. This configuration is based on the combination of sales area, customer pricing procedure, and document pricing procedure to which a pricing procedure is assigned. See also configuration item 101118 as mentioned under Resolution.

The entry of the pricing procedure determination which has been used to create an entry for the new sales area has no pricing procedure assigned. As the pricing procedure is a mandatory setting, during content activation, the system raises an error.


Ensure that a pricing procedure is assigned to the sales area that you reference when creating a new sales area.

  1. 1. Open the app "Manage your Solution", then choose "Configure Your Solution".  
  2. 2. Search for configuration item 101118 in the search bar or apply the following filter values:
  3.     - Application Area: Sales
  4.     - Sub Application Area: Price Management
  5. 3. Choose item: Pricing
  6. 4. For the configuration step Set Pricing Procedure Determination, choose Configure.

 The screenshot shows the mandatory field: Pricing Procedure
