Workaround solution.

  1. When you have the (new) business partners of a country on a list (ex.: excel) you can copy the BP numbers and paste them into the selection parameter

  2. Alternatively, access the value help for the business partner. In that, you have the option to select business partners by country. If you choose “Select All” in the table header all respective business partners are taken into the selection.

  3. You do not create any credit segments for new business partners, but you wait until the first sales order is being entered for the business partner. The credit segment is then derived from the SD org data and will be created automatically on the fly.
