    Did you try something with a BAdI like VENDOR_ADD_DATA_CS (even if it's not its initial purpose, it offer a GET_DATA method to change master data from customer screen, and you may find the fields you require in its signature)

    Which BAdI/Exit did you already analyze, did you debug the Address function groups for fields unavailable on the master data record only in address records?

    You could also considering scheduling a call of method VMD_EI_API=>MAINTAIN_BAPI (wrap it in a RFC enabled FM and schedule it IN BACKGROUND TASK/UNIT)

    • Then you have to change the values both in LFA1 and in memory of address managing function group. First set break-points at start of FM like ADDR_MEMORY_PUSH and POP, to find how to handle the data of the SZA0 function group (GT_MEMORY_STACK)
