Company Code 1 ----- M Sales Organization


 Distribution Channel / Sales Organization
 - Each Distribution Channel must be assigned to at least one Sales Organization to be able to be used in SD module, So the relationship here is Sales Organization Distribution Channel ( Many To Many ) 

Distribution Channel M ----- M Sales Organization 

 Division / Sales Organization

Sales Area /Sales Office

Sales Group M ----- M  Sales Office

Plant M ----- M Shipping Point
