Can I create multiple vendors under 1 vendor number?

Hello All,

Is it possible in SAP to create multiple suppliers under a single vendor number? We have a lot of suppliers from whom we make purchases only once and it is not a good idea to create a supplier just for 1 purchase. We have a procurement system that is integrated with SAP. We have 1 supplier in SAP named ONE TRADE VENDORS and the supplier number is ONETRAD.

I want to now know that is it possible to create a supplier with number ONETRAD1, ONETRAD2 so on and so forth and all of these are actually linked with the main ONETRAD.

Your assistance is much appreciated and thank you in advance.

Regards,

Pradip

    Hi Pradip,

    You could try with Head Office field in Company Data (LFB1-LNRZE).

    You did not tell what procurement system you have, and you did not tell with what technology it is integrated with your SAP.

    Without proper information there is not much to answer. If you communicate with Idocs then it is certainly possible to convert various vendor numbers to just a single SAP vendor number.
