Mass Change in Vendor Names using File Upload/Download gives error in MDG-S (ERP Vendor UI)

Hello Experts,

We have implemented MDG-S solution for Vendor Management. We are using Vendor like UI, ver is 9.0.

I was testing Mass Change feature using File Download / Upload tool. Well from last 3 months Business is able to change the Company Code Data, Purchasing Data, Email Address, Physical Address, Tax Numbers quite easily. So no issue in that.

However, we got a request to change the Names of quite a few vendors at 1 go. I thought of using same feature on 'Central Data' entity.

I did a quick test to Change the Name 1, Name 2, name 3 & Name 4 field of Vendor. This Vendor does have 1 Contact Person associated with it.

I was able to download the records but during the upload of Updated File, it's giving Error. Here is the Screenshot of the Error during File Upload

Not sure why this error is coming up. As I am updating data in the Central Data Entity.

What can we do here to skip this error & do the File Upload & eventually mass Change the Names of the Vendor.

Rohit Singh

    Hello Rohit,

    We are using the contact person functionality with Vendor like UI (MDG 8.0)

    We did not use File Upload/Download . but seeing your question i did try it & noticed that we have the same issue.

    This is only happening if the Vendor has a Contact person . In the example above the Vendor has 2 contact persons, hence the 2 messages.

    Though we will not be using this functionliaty here it would be good to know if you reach a solution for this.

    • Hi Kavita,

      Yes this problem always occur when the Vendor has Contact Person with it. I will put my findings here if I got the solution for this problem.

    We got a response and it was foolish of me to not to use the correct Upload Mode.

    For the change in BP_CENTRL entity, the correct File Upload mode is "Overwrite or Add Attributes", shown in the pic below

    By Default, the 2nd Upload Mode is selected which is "Overwrite or Add Records", we have to change it to 3rd one.

    Hope this helps for future queries.
