Want to receive sales orders from customers by EDI.

When receiving the IDOC, the customer sent me his EDI partner number. (Operational point)

How to translate the 13 digit number to my SAP customer number?

I have WE20 actualized, the EDPAR table is also actualized...

THe message ORDER have the operational code ORD asigned with the function INPU_IDOC_ORDER.

When processing the IDOC, the system was not able to determine the customer number from that external partner informed.

Can someone help me please? There is something I done wrong...

Thans in advance for the help!

    T-code VOE4

    IMG -> SD -> EDI -> EDI Mesaages -> Configure EDI partners -> Convert external to Internal partner numbers

    In this IMG activity, you convert the external number belonging to the

    EDI partner into an internal number.


    A customer is given number 123 in the SAP ERP System. This customer

    enters the following partners in his or her system with the numbers

    below (external numbers). You enter these partners in the ERP System

    with the following internal numbers:

    Partner function External number Internal number

    Ship-to party abc 456

    Bill-to party def 789

    You then have to enter the following data:

    Customer Ext. function External partners Internal number

    123 WE abc 456

    123 RE def 789

      Hi Subramaniam,

      No, its not necesary to update the table EDSDC. You have to update that just if you do not receive the sales org data into ORDERS segment E1EDK14.

      According to the standard SAP function module yo must fill the EDPAR with the external partner number asigned to its SAP KUNNR (customer number) and PARVW(partner function).

      My problem is already solved, and we're correctely receiving the sales orders via EDI into SAP.

      Thanks anyway for your message.
