A best practice in SAP Retail is that the following objects all have the same 4-character number:
- Site Number
- Site Business Partner Number
- Site Customer Number
- Site Vendor Number
- Site Profit Center Number (for Article Master)
This is true for all Sites: Stores, Distribution Centers, and Reference Sites of all flavors.
But this isn’t a system-constraint! Like many things that are described as a “Best Practice,” you can choose otherwise … and pay a price 🙂
