Converting field NAME1 to fields NAME_LAST and NAME_FIRST

Hi to all of you,

I have a question concerning to the next issue:

When we run transaction JUCDCM (Convert customer and vendor masters to SAP Business Partner), the information contained in field NAME1 from customer/vendor master is migrated to field NAME_LAST of Business Partner. The issue here is that Business Partner has <i>two</i> fields to fill the first name and last name of the customer/vendor, these fields are: NAME_LAST and NAME_FIRST. So, after running transaction JUCDCM, we have the <i>complete</i> name of customer/vendor only in field NAME_LAST, and field NAME_FIRST remains empty.

Do you know a report or something that we can use to cut the information from field NAME1 and distribute it into fields NAME_LAST and NAME_FIRST??

Thanks in advanced for your help.


Miyuki Quiroz.

    Hi Miyuki,

    the conversion calls the standard function module for the mapping of an organizational address (which the customer master has) to a personal address in case the business partner will be created as a person.

    In this mapping the field name2 is mapped to name_first.

    So either change your customer master to have the first name in the second name field or you have to change the report.

    There is no BADI hereĀ“.
