Hello All

Can you please advise me on how i can mass-update below fields using a Fm for vendor master record in ECC ?

Search Term 1 , Search term 2 and Remarks field in ADRC table


Requirement: I need to be able to do this programmatically as I need to create a simple report for an end user. Currently we do a LSMW and that's a bit time consuming and business would like this to be a ABAP report . BDC is not a recommended approach hence ruling that out.

I have tried below and this does not suit my requirement;

  1. XK99 - As it has lot of additional fields which can be updated and cant be given to an end user
  2. VENDOR_MAINTAIN_XK02 – not sure what to pass Error comes up as below
  3. BAPI_BUPA_ADDRESS_CHANGE—Cant find Search 1 and Search 2 in this
  4. ADDR_UPDATE – tried not working the FM runs successfully but does not update anything

Check if it is manageable (for a functional KeyUser) by using trx."MASS" for Objecttype "LFA1".

Other options : BDC-recording into Custom-FM(outdated approach?) or develop your solution with "CMD_EI_API" BAPI ...

We do allow the business users to do mass updates using MASS or similar transactions. But this access is given only to the few power users and usually under the Firefighter ID.

Google -> BAPI change vendor -> (or similar) should find information about the BAPIs if any exist for the vendor master data changes.

Using the FMs that are not released by SAP is not much better than BDC.

Also keep in mind that in S/4HANA SAP is switching to the "business partner" functionality, so this kind of custom development will likely only serve you while you're on ECC.

Hi Jelena

Thanks for your reply . So you mean there is no FM which can be used for updating vendor master records?
