ELM - Really slow to create one business partner

Hi all,

I've just created a mapping with 10 fields in it to create simple business partners via ELM. When I execute ELM immediately, it takes 20 minutes to load, map and process the single business partner in the file.

I've not got any BADI's active in ELM so it is SAP standard code that is doing this.

Its quicker for me to type the business partner in than let the ELM load it!.

    Dear Tucker,

    This Problem is in connection with the full lock table, this may occur because of external lists processed by many parallel running process.

    or this may be because of this as well

    For each data record of the external list, two business partners (person and organization) and a relationship between the two business partner are created. The system sets several locks for each data record (one lock for each business partner and one for the relationship). If both business partners have address and communication data, separate locks are set for this. If you also assign marketing attributes to the business partners, the number of the locks FOR EACH DATA RECORD is increased again.

    You must increase the lock table. To do this, see Notes 13907 and 552289.

    or reduce the number of parallel processing

    reward with points.

      I don't believe that locks are a problem. I've checked SM12 and there are no outstanding locks for anyone else. I appreciate that locks would be an issue for a large amount of data but I'm running on a CRM system with only me using it and am running in a file with a single business partner in it.

      I've checked SM50 and there are no processes that are currently running so its not an infinite loop ar anything.

      The ELM status says that it is still running and has been for 4 hours. Its only a single business partner.

      Any ideas anyone?
