Dear All,

I am trying to load Customers and vendors into new S4 Instance using outof the box migration cockpit(LTMC) load programs. When I have the same person as a customer as well as a supplier, it created two different BP numbers in the system.

I want one BP and roles created to Supplier and customer within that BP. How can I achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Anushka,

From S/4 1709 atleast there are new objects for this. For example use 'Supplier - extend existing records by new org levels" object to extend the already uploaded BP as customer with Vendor role.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Dharshan,

Thanks for the reply.

I checked the migration Object you suggested. However, that requires me to provide "Supplier Number" which I do not have. I have only a "customer number" and a "BP Number" .

What I am looking for is not to Extend existing Supplier into different Org levels. I need to create a new BP Role for an existing BP.

Hope this makes my question is more clearer.

If you plan to upload/extend BP role by Supplier for which Customer role already exists, give the same number ( BP number which was created for customer) as supplier in the file. I am not sure if you are using External/Internal numbering for suppliers. If using internal numbering, you might have to try uploading mapping of generated numbers if it straight away does not work for you. .

I hope this works for you.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Darshan, Anushka,

I have similar requirement to extend the customer as Vendor Role. we will be uploading customer & vendors having the same number.

As a sample, I am trying to extend (more specific create) already created Customer XXX as Vendor using Supplier Template. I have used External Numbering. While simulation I am getting an Error message that Business Partner XXX already exist. which means Supplier Template not allowing me already created Customer as a vendor.

I have also checked template for 'Supplier - extend existing record by new org levels' but it is not useful in my case.

Did you get the solution for this requirement?
