Desirable Vendor not populating in backend (R/3)


Key Words: Desirable Vendor, Vendor Replication

System: SRM 5.0, SAP R/3 4.6

Scenario: Classic

We replicate vendors for the backend R/3 via BBPGETVD. However, when ran BBPGETVD we had some errors so we had to select “<i>If R/3 Number Assignment is not Possible. Internal Number Assignment</i>”.

We have set-up EBP and are able to create requisitions (PR) in the backend from the SCs. However, the PR that is created in the backend (R/3) the Preferred Vendor is not being populated even if we select a vendor in the Source of Supply section of the SC. The vendor number of the Vendor that is selected is not the vendor number is in the backend.

Could my problem of the Preferred Vendor not being populated because the vendor number does not match? i.e. the vendor number in EBP does not exist in R/3

If this is the case, what do I need to do to the vendor number in EBP so they match the vendors number in the backend.

I know that view BBPV_BUPA_VENMAP shows the mapping of the replicated vendor s in EBP to the vendors in R/3.

Any help, suggestions, etc. will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
