MDG: Add standard fields to international address UI

Hi all,

I want to enhance the international address version in MDG with the attributes COUNTRY and REGION. These fields are available in the international address UI in the standard ERP Business Partner transaction, but not in MDG.

My approach was to enhance the genil attribute structure BSS_BPIL_ADDRESSVERSION_ATTR with the two attributes and afterwards add those fields in FPM.

Next step: to add SMT mapping for those attributes. Unfortunately it's not possible to enhance structure BUS_EI_STRUC_ORG.

Has anybody enhanced the international address succesfully and can share his experiences?

Kind regards,

    in standard the fields country and region are the same as the ones of the corresponding address. You cannot create international versions of the data. This behavior is defined by the corresponding BAPIs used for reading and saving the data. Therefore we re-use the corresponding structure BAPIAD1VD (as include in our own genIL structure). The fact that you cannot enhance those structures is most probably the fact that the BAPIs would not take care of reading and/or saving the enhanced fields automatically. So you would have to consider a different way for handling the data base access correctly. Doing this, you will like not need the corresponding standard SAP structures anymore.

    Best regards

    Hi Hannes,

    we have a similar requirement like you're describing.

    In the meantime, did you find a solution? If yes, could you elaborate some of the steps you had to undertake?

    Best regards,
