Can anyone tell me what are the transactions/operations in which BP numbers are being used ?

As i understand during sales/purchase order we are still refering to customer/vendor numbers, so when we are using actually BP numbers ?

Hi Michal,

In CRM we only have the concept of BP. Indeed upon replciation to ECC the BP gets synchronised with a customer and it is this customer that is used on the transaction.

As far as I can tell, the BP concept is part of the Netweaver AS and it is gennerally available on all SAP Modules. Basically SAP wanted a centralised way to manage Business Partners across all modules. On ECC side there is a CVI (Customer Vendor Integration) engine which deals with the creation and the sync of the Customer and Vendor entities. These last 2 were existing long before the BP concept came to life.

Anyway, I am not sure on the answer so I will be curious if someone can shed some light on this.
