Regarding vendor master BAPI issue

Dear guys,

I am working on vendor master creation using the Method VMD_EI_API=>maintain_BAPI. It was working fine for most of the scenarios. Recently when we tried to execute I am getting an error stating " Transaction code was not intended. Enter Xk01 or Xk02" which is almost stopping my development. I am not sure how a BAPI trying to call this. Before posting I checked all the respective codes posted, but it is also giving me the same error. Your help will be much appreciated. Please share the thoughts.

    Hi Kalyan,

    Pls check how your code is differentiating the difference between create and update.

    Im my view for update in header structure we need to pass vendor number .

    If possible pls paste the code.

    Hi ,

    Thanks for the reply. I do pass the vendor number. Please find the code below. Hope that will give some idea. Here I am trying to pass the data to existing vendor.

    Sample code:

    Could you set a break-point at start of static method VMD_EI_API=>SET_TRANSACTION_CODE?

    Hi Raymond / Lokeshwar,

    Thanks for helping me. In debugger it is not  stopping at the method mentioned. I am getting the error at the below mentioned methods.

    METHOD-->MAINTAIN_SINGLE : this is the method it is going through

    vmd_ei_api_memory=>read_current_lfa1: Here it is failing to check the t code.

    In the below , it is failing due to non receipt of the T code.

    CALL METHOD vmd_ei_api=>complete_and_check
          is_lfa1_new         = ls_lfa1_new
          is_lfa1_old         = ls_lfa1_old
          iv_tcode            = lv_tcode
          iv_collect_messages = iv_collect_messages
          es_error            = ls_error
          cs_vend_flags       = ls_vend_flags.

    Hope this gives you to find some issue.

    • The tcode should have been set in the lines immediately before those ones, could you check in your systeme, and if not set, look for suitable OSS notes.

      * Set TCODE
         if ls_lfa1_old is initial.
      *   Insert
           lv_tcode    = gc_tcode_create.
           lv_upd_lfa1 = 'I'.
      *   in LFA1 no deletion is possible =>
      *   Update
           lv_tcode    = gc_tcode_change.
           lv_upd_lfa1 = 'U'.

      * Complete and check
         call method vmd_ei_api=>complete_and_check

      Nb: constants should be XK01 and XK02
