    Dear Daly

    Even if it is a standalone scenatios the FI accounting entries will be in some backend as there can be no accounting entries in the EBP systems. hence the Company, company code and Plant have to be defined in the accounting system as the whole valuation and accounting entries will be in backend.

      Yes but the bbp_get_location* programs wantto pull the locations, etc. from a backend R/3 system. I want to run standalone and I just want to load the locations (company, plant, storage locations) manually or from a CSV file...is this possible?

    Hello Daly

    I'm in the same situation. I wonder if you have found some information about how to create these attributes. if you have it, could you tell me?

    Thanks

    Hello Daly,

    to create:

    <b>Local company</b> --> in PPOMA_BBP, flag it as "Company" in "function" tab. It is then available as a company in transaction "Maintain internal address"

    <b>Local plant</b> in that company --> use "Maintain Business partner" --> first option --> Business Partner as <location> --> Create. Assign it to the local company in the bottom mapping area.

    <b>Local storage locations</b> in that plant --> This is pure R/3 feature. I don't think we can create some local storage loc in SRM.
