MDM Extractor

Hi All,

Currnetly there are two methods for extracting data from ERP system. One is via transaction MDMGX. The other is via MDM_CLNT_EXTR. Could anybody tell the difference between these methods?

Thanks + Best Regards

Jerome

    Hi Jerome,

    MDMGX is generic extract for initial load.

    For Data Extract for MDM like Customer, Vendor, Material and Employee we have two different approach:

    1. Customer - MDMC

    Vendor - MDMV

    Material - BD10

    Employee - PFAL

    2. MDM_CLNT_EXTR

    where as the first approach saves separate IDOC xml file for each record, while using MDM_CLNT_EXTR will always save single IDOC xml file for all the records given.

    hope this might really helps you...

    thanks,

    Alexander.

    P.S. Kidnly reward the points, if found helpful.

    Hi Jerome ,

    MDMX transaction is basically used for Initial load and for emails etc .

    I use MDM_CLNT_EXTR as it provides both Initial and Delta load . Another feature is that there is very vast selection criteria to select records .

    Hope this helps .

    Hi Jerome,

    transaction MDMGX is used to extract customizing data from the SAP System to fill the corresponding Look Up Tables in MDM. The transaction was introduced with SP04 and it is an addition to the old customizing extractors of SAP Note 830864. Please note that the current standard delivery of MDMGX does not yet support the Customer/Vendor/Material repositories. This is planned for the further upcoming releases. But of course you can use the transaction to configure the extraction for those repositories by yourself.

    MDM_CLNT_EXTR is the recommended way to extract any kind of object data. Although there are some other transactions - that have been mentioned here - MDM_CLNT_EXTR provides the most powerfull configuration. You may choose between intial or delta (change pointer driven) distribution, you can decide which segments you want to extract and you can set more selections criterias than in the other transactions.

    Kind regards

    Michael
