Vendor Master data cleanup

Hi MM Gurus

We are planning to do vendor master cleanup. What kind of reports/transactions that can help me to access vendors that have not been used for the past couple of years and what strategy can I use to check for duplicate vendors. How do I handle vendors that are on the source list and need to be deleted.

Please help!

Regards

K

    Hi All,

    Master Data is very important. So you need to do it very carefully. Master data duplication & unused master data can be removed & maintained in SAP MDM if your company is handleing huge amount of Master data.

    Other information i will get back to as soon as possible.

    Reward if useful

    Dear Khuselwa

    A) You can know the list of active vendor through transaction MC$4 wherein you can give the period say 2 years to find out list of vendor on which PO were raised.

    B) To find out duplicate vendors you can very well use the tool SAP MDM which is specifically used to find duplicate master records.

    SAP MDM helps in following ways

    • Delivers a single version of the truth for customers, suppliers, products, employees and user designated objects

    • Provides capabilities to share this single version of the truth internally and externally with partners

    • Leverages existing IT investments in business-critical data

    • Accelerates and improves the execution of business processes

    To delete vendors from source list you have two options.

    a) if you want to delete a vendor for supplying a particular material then you have to go to a source list of that material & block vendor from that list

    b) If you want to delete a vendor from the system then go to transaction MK 06 & you can delete the vendor from the system.

    I hope this will clarify your doubts.

    Cheers,
