Hi Experts,

Topic : How we can create Business Partner and Customer/Vendor where Business Partner ID and Customer ID or Vendor ID should not be the same in S4HANA (version 1610) Migration

SAP is recommended that Business Partner-ID and Customer-ID / Vendor-ID should be the same. But our Business requirement is that Business Partner-ID and Customer-ID / Vendor-ID should not be the same. We are using function module RFC_CVI_EI_INBOUND_MAIN for S/4HANA (Version 1610) MIGRATION of BUSINESS PARTNER.

We require to put the BP information and Customer information at a go using RFC_CVI_EI_INBOUND_MAIN.

Could you suggest me how we can fix our requirement?

I'm confused... What exactly should not be "the same"? In S/4HANA, there are no more separate customers/vendors, everything goes into "business partner". You can't change this DB design.

But if by "ID" you mean the customer/vendor number (like KUNNR/LIFNR) then I don't see what is stopping you from just creating two records.

You might want to clarify what exactly is an issue.

Hi Jelena,

My question was : can we create BP number which must be different/separate from customer(KUNNR) and vendor(LIFNR) in S/4HANA ?

Thanks in advance.

hi Shamik,

Could you please explain term "ID"? Do you want to have Business partner number separate from customer/vendor number in S/4HANA?

Thanks!

Simple Google search "business partner s4hana site:sap.com" finds this blog, among many other links. It says clearly "It´s recommended but not mandatory that BuPa ID and Customer-ID / Vendor ID are the same" and describes the process, from what I can see.

We don't have S4HANA, so I can't answer more specifically (you'd attract more "experts" if you've used more suitable tags). But it's also still not clear what exactly is the issue you're facing and what have you tried to resolve this. So far you've just repeated the question "can we..." to which, I believe, the blog above answers "yes". Other than that I still don't understand what the problem is, sorry. You might want to explain in more detail what exactly is concern about the functions mentioned and why.
