Impact of processing DEBMAS before ADRMAS

The SAP note 1052964 -u2018MDM: Distribution of Business Partners, Customers, Vendorsu2019 states that u201CThis means that you have to send always (at least) two IDocs to your R/3 (ERP) system. One IDoc contains the address data (ADRMAS), a second IDoc contains the Master Data (CREMAS or DEBMAS)u2026u2026 In addition the ADRMAS IDoc must always be the first IDoc sent to and processed by your R/3 (ERP) system. Ensure that you maintain the correct sequence.u201D

In our scenario, we are generating the SAP number from R/3 & appending the number to the IDOC. We wanted to know the impact of processing DEBMAS before ADRMAS. We first sent out the DEBMAS (filling all the address fields required by it) to R/3, and then used the customer number generated in R/3 with the sent DEBMAS IDoc to populate the u2018OBJ_IDu2019 field in ADRMAS and then sent out the ADRMAS to R/3. Both IDocs were successful in R/3.

What are the pitfalls by following this approach, as SAP specifically suggests in the note that ADRMAS needs to go before DEBMAS.

    Hi Arvind,

    you can do this as well. Having ADRMAS imported befor DEBMAS is only necessary if neither the ADRMAS nor the DEBMAS contain a record key. In this special case ALE is able to link an ADRMAS to a DEBMAS automatically. As you have the keys in your messages, the order does'nt realy play a matter.
