SAP Vendor Master mapping transaction

Hello SAP gurus,

I got a requirement to create vendor master via ALE. Vendor master is created in centralized SAP system (Sender) and sends the data via ALE IDoc to our local SAP system (Receiver). This should work fine for any new vendor master creation.

But for the existing vendors, we have a problem. For example, vendor ABC is created as vendor# 12345 in our SAP central system and vendor# 34567 in SAP local system.

During the vendor master change for existing vendors, the ALE IDoc should look for the equivalent vendor# in SAP local system. So we are expecting this mapping to be done in receiving SAP system. The question here is, Is there any standard mapping transaction for vendor master (or) this need to be done as custom development? There is a tcode: VOE4 for customer master mapping . Is there any similar transaction for vendor mapping as well.

Please let me know your thoughts and ideas.

    Our approach is 2-fold.

    In the central system we have a vendor classification with a class per satellite system and in that class we have a characteristic for the vendor number in the satellite system.

    In the satellite system we have added a Z-field to the vendor master table and store here the vendor number of the central system.
