    MASTER Data is the data that exists in the organization like employee details, material master, customer master, vendor master etc. These are generally created once.

    TRASNACTION Data - These are the business documents that you create using the master data - Purchase orders, sales orders etc

    Hi john,

    1. A simple example can distinguish between the two.

    2. Eg. Purchase Order Entry

    3. a) when we create a new purchase order,

    we give some important details like

    a) company code

    b) plant

    c) item code

    etc.

    These are all Master Data.

    The values come from some master tables.

    4. Where as the Purchase order itself,

    is a transaction data. Purchase orders

    are created many times, modified many times.

    Hence, it is TRANSACTION data.

    5. Where as master data,

    is once created,

    and used many times, in other transactions.

    regards,

    amit m.

    hi

    good

    MASTER DATA->

    Master data are distributed throughout the company, they are often not standardised and often redundant. As a result it is very costly to offer efficient customer service, keep track of supply chains and make strategic decisions. With SAP Master Data Management (SAP MDM) these important business data from across the company can be brought together, harmonised and made accessible to all staff and business partners. As a key component of SAP NetWeaver, SAP MDM ensures data integrity via all IT systems.

    Regardless of the industry, companies often work with different ERP and Legacy systems. The result: the business processes are based on information about customers, partners and products which is displayed in different ways in the systems. If the data are recorded manually, there are more inconsistencies: some data sets are entered several times, others cannot be retrieved by all divisions of the company.

    As corporate applications are becoming increasingly complex and produce ever greater amounts of data, the problem is intensified further. Nevertheless, your employees must work with the inconsistent data and make decisions on this basis. The lack of standardised master data easily leads to wrong decisions, which restrict efficiency and threaten customer satisfaction and profitability.

    TRANSACTION DATA->

    Hi John,

    Master Data: It is that type of data that changes very rarely , mostly it consists of customer data, material data, vendor data.

    The details of the material or your vendor and customer change very rarely and hence they are called master data.

    Transaction data:

    This data is updated when there is any transaction that is done ie when you create an order of selling particular goods to some customer, then in this ur custome and material are your master data, but the order you create and the details of that order form the transactional data.

    Transaction Codes.

    These are the abbreviation which when attached to a particular program act as a short cut and take you directly to the execution of that program.

    Regards.

    Sunmit.

    Please award points if heklpful.

    Hai Johnn,

    MASTER DATA : The Data that is rarely changed and used as a referance for other entry. Material Master, Vendor Master, Customer Master.

    (that remains unchanged over a long period of time)

    Transaction Data : Transaction-specific data that is short-lived and assigned to certain master data.
