    Customer Master Data / Material Master Data are basically Master Data, which are maintained by core team / super user ideally.

    Configuration for Customer Master Data is as under:

    Account Group

    Maintain Number Range for Account Group

    Use

    The purpose of this activity is to control number range of Account Group.

    Procedure

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG --> Financial Accounting (New)  Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable  Customer Accounts  Master Data  Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data  Create Number Ranges for Customer Accounts  Select the Icon to maintain Number Range

    Transaction Code: SPRO

    Data to be maintained:

    No | From | To | Current No | Ext (Tick in Check Box)

    01 | 0000000001 | 0000099999 | 0 | No

    02 | 0000100000 | 0000299999 | 0 | No

    XX | A | ZZZZZZZZZZ | Yes

    Assign Number Range to Account Group

    Use

    The purpose of this activity is to maintain number range of Account Group.

    Procedure

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG --> Financial Accounting (New)  Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable  Customer Accounts  Master Data  Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data  Assign Number Ranges to Customer Account Groups

    Transaction Code: SPRO

    Data to be maintained:

    Group | Name | Number Range

    0001 | Sold-to party | XX

    0002 | Goods recipient | XX

    0003 | Payer | XX

    0004 | Bill-to party | XX

    Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)

    Use

    In this step, you determine the account group of the customer.

    Procedure

    Access the activity using one of the following navigation options:

    IMG --> Financial Accounting (New)  Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable  Customer Accounts  Master Data  Preparations for Creating Customer Master Data  Define Account Groups with Screen Layout (Customers)

    Transaction Code SPRO

    The groups indicated below are a few examples. There are many groups in Standard SAP & if we require additional Group, it can be copied from appropriate group & maintained.

    Group | Name

    0001 | Sold-to party

    0002 | Goods recipient

    0003 | Payer

    0004 | Bill-to party

    0005 | Prospective customer

    0006 | Competitor

    Select Sold-to-party  go to Details  Double Click on General data / Company code data / Sales data. It will take to next screen which details Tab Pages of General data / Company code data / Sales data. Double Click on Tab Page for example: Address, Control, Marketing & so on. Here you can maintain whether the field is to be Suppress, Req. Entry, Opt. entry or Display

    Hello,

    In some of the companies there will be a dedicated team for data maintenance. They will be looking after the master data issue. If you fell the issue is because of the master data, you can inform them.

    As in the same standard SAP, for customer master the transaction used will be XD01/02/03 and material master MM01/02/03.

    Prase

    Hi,

    In support team you need to check the document incompletion first, then changes in the documents. If you do not find any thing here then check for the same transaction from data base. compare both and try to find out the reason.

    If every thing goes well, then the last step is to debug the system and find out the reason.

    Usually you can follow these steps.

    Thanks
