Copy Functionality in SAP MDG 8.0 (Business Partner)

Dear Experts,

As per the below thread

and link

Copy functionality is part of the MDG 8.0 for Business Partner, Supplier. I checked the note 2020896 as well, all the mentioned implementations are already existing in my MDG 8.0 system. But the problem is copy is not working for BP, only few data like country, roles are getting populated.

Also when I click copy on the ERP vendor section after going through the existing BP in change mode, the supplier information is getting copied but the copied vendor vanishes after the CR submission as there is 1-1 mapping for BP and Supplier.

Please let me know how to get the BP copied from the existing one. Also do I need to make some CVI related changes for copied ERP vendor to be saved in the system.

    Hi Rimpy,

    copy functionality for Customer / Supplier is available in MDG 8.0 (and even in MDG 7.0 SP03) as described in saphelp (your link above).

    In Standard-BP-UI we deliver two copy variants out-of-the-box:

    • STANDARD only copies the fields being copied in ERP-Customer / ERP-Vendor when doing create with reference. So fields like e.g. name, address, bank details, etc. are not copied because this does not make sense for most use cases. However the linked customers / suppliers as well as segments below like company code data as well as sales area data are copied (selected fields only!). Of course the BP-Number as well as Customer/ Vendor-Numbers are not copied, these either will automatically get new numbers (internal number range) or have to be entered (external number range).
    • COMPLETE copies nearly all fields. Excluded ar only fields which would lead to wrong information, e.g. the date of last dunning.

    In ERP-Customer / ERP-Vendor UI we deliver the copy variant STANDARD (see explanation above).

    You are free to define a copy variant according to your customer's need. Therefore please have a look at note 2020896 and read attached document about BOL Entity Cloner (BEC) tool.

    If the functionality described above does not work in your system when pressing COPY button, feel free to create a ticket for the same.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards Carsten Koehler

      Thanks Carsten for your reply.

      Attaching the screen shot for your view.

      When clicked on Copy, no ERP vendor copied.

      Similarly when I click on Copy inside, customer/ vendor details will be copied. No BP created for new customer/vendor.

      So do I need to raise the SAP ticket for the same.
