We can assign business area to plant in a SAP R/3 client with T-code: SPRO.

In this post we will show how to assign business area “GCB0” (read this to create business area) to plant “GC01” that we’ve created before at our post about Define plant. In this example, we have defined valuation level at plant in define material valuation activity. We don’t have any SD division.
