IDOC ORDERS doesn't show vendor address and purchasing group's email and phone number.

vendor address and Partner function "VN" are maintained in vender master (MK03) and mentioned purchasing group data is maintained both in customizing and user profile (tcode: SU3).

I guess i do not need to extend the IDOC as they are basic data for PO.

Please feel free to give me your opinion/solution.

The vendor address can be seen in segment E1EDKA1 LF

The purchasing group number is in E1EDK14 009 the contact information is not transferred, this information should be available in your vendors customer master

In general talk 2 computers to each other and one creates the purchase order and the other converts the PO into a sales order. This is a very close business case between 2 parties who should know each other before they turning paper business into EDI.

see for your reference on the vendor address and other things which are worth to know OSS note 456127 - FAQ: Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) in purchasing

Thank you for your answer.

The vendor address doesn't appear in segment E1EDKA1 LF.

I found that in the transaction OME4, there is a field "Telephone number of purchasing group (buyer group)" where i can write phone number which will be appeared in the IDOC.

But still i do not know where to write the email address.

I think regardless EDI connection btw vendor and company, the vendor address is necessary to be written in the EDI in case vendor has several different addresses and one centralized EDI processing party.

As the "E1EDKA1" has fields for address, i believe there must be a way for vendor address writing from SAP without extention.

Thank you.
