    Hi Naresh,

    The benefit of Integrating R/3 with MDM will basically be restricted to only enrichment of data you cannot perform consolidation of data in MDM and send the result to R/3 as R/3 has no provision to store the MDM global id creted after consolidation.

    In this case if you want to use R/3 MDM for an enrichment purpose or just to find Duplicates but not syndicate it back then you can perform this using ABAP apis as well in this case you may not require to use XI but you will be able to access MDM data from R/3 and even generate Reports out of it.

    Hope it helped

    Hi naresh,

    It all depends upon the scenario. If you will try to import the main table records present in R3 into MDM, it will be better off done using XI as it converts the IDOCS into XML whcih MDM understands.

    The check table data can be extracted from R3 using the Generic Extractor Program in R3 directly in the form of an XML file. It can then be imported into MDM lookup tables.

    If yoy are just trying to access MDM data or trying to create records in MDM etc, you can do that directly using ABAP API's.

    SAP has provided function modules which can be used to perform various functions in MDM through R3.

    Hope it helped you....

    Thanks and Regards

    Hi Naresh this link will help you to understand the Integration of MDM and R/3.

    In this MDM is linked with R/3 with ABAP APIs

    The only way is to extract xml or excel files or master data from ur R3 system on its own using mdm abap apis.

    Hi Naresh,

    To extract the reference data (lookup table data) from R3 to XI, yes, you can do this without using XI. SAP has provided standard transaction as "MDMGX"-mdm extractor, by using this you can replicate the reference data from R3 to MDM without using XI.

    but for the main table data, you can use the MDM ABAP API.

    otherwise there is another transaction as "MDM_CLNT_EXTR", by using this you can replicate the main table data from R3 to MDM but in this case you have to use XI.

    Hope this will help you.
