CPD customer name from SD order in purchase requisition

Dear experts,

I'm facing following problem:

A SD standard order is created for a CDP customer, which gets the full address (name, surname, street..). Based on the schedule line type, the system creates a purchase requisition. This MM document contains the correct SD order number and CPD customer number; however the name of the CPD customer is not correctly copied (it remains at "CDP customer", what is the name in VD03).

Is there an easy (maybe SAP standard) way to copy the entered name from the SD order to the purchase requisition?

Any help appreciated!

Best regards,

    I made a quick test in a sandbox with a CPDA customer and ALES item category (too lazy to test with a manual PO, sorry).

    In both the PR and PO the delivery address number displayed is the same as the address number from the sales order (VBPA).

    If you use the same process and it results in deviating addresses between the sales and the purchasing document, looking into why the address is not transferred (e.g. is there some enhancement) can be a good starting point for investigation.

    How is it once you converted it to a PO?

    Do you then see the real address information?

    For what purpose do you need this detailed information in the PR?

    • Hello Jürgen,

      the PR is converted into a PO 1:1, therefore the address is wrong in the PO, too.

      The origin of the problem is that after the PO creation, an EDI message is sent to the vendor assigned to the PO. This message now contains the fake address data of the CPD customer, what leads to a problem in vendor's processes (...and furthermore, it makes no sense..)

      I'll check if there is a special development needed.

      Thanks & best regards,
