One time vendor PO in SRM


We use SRM 4.0 extended version. The case is, one time vendor is used in the PO, and vendor address details are entered completely.

While PO is replicated to R3, it gives error "Please first maintain vendor's address". But it is already entered perfectly. Why we have this error ?

    Hi there,

    Indeed the topic addresses is not a trivial issue.

    1. EBP manages different address types, that are:

    (a) Standard address in company level of org structure /PPOMA_BBP

    (b) Relationship/business address /BBPAT05, button relationship

    (c) Business partner address /BBPAT05

    (e) User address in /SU01

    2. You get the internal standard address numbers of (a) in /SE16 ADRC.

    You can (optional) enter a specific default address number into

    the following attributes within /PPOMA_BBP in Org level or user

    level, that are:

    ADDR_BILLT - Invoicing party address

    ADDR_SHIPT - Delivery address

    and e.g. set the default for a dedicated standard address in

    company/root level of the org structure. In general the different

    company addresses are maintained by the administrator.

    3. Furthermore you get the vendor addresses using ta /BBPADDRINTV

    and you can display internal addresses using ta /BBPADDRINTC

    in SAPGUI.

    4. The external requirements are technically local shopping carts.

    When they are imported from R/3 Backend a specific EBP channel

    in /PPOMA_BBP has been created especially for the external

    requirement transfer from R/3 Backend. A PurchGroup is

    responsible for the EBP channel. The standard address resp.

    attributes (e.g. ADDR_SHIPT) of that PurchGroup resp.

    EBP channel within /PPOMA_BBP are automatically assigned to

    all incoming external requirements.

    Depending on how the Org structure has been setup (via HR replication

    or manually) the company addressess should correspond to those

    of R/3 Backend. This means once the org structure has been setup

    incl. all assigned addresses no additional action is necessary

    for address assingment of external requirements, because they

    are handled like internal shopping carts as soon as they imported

    to EBP.

    Please check SAP note: 904960.

    Hope this helps,

    Kind Regards,

    While appliying the note 904960, we have the error message first "Object can only be created in SAP package" and after that "Object name can only contain characters from syntactical character set" and finally note procedure is interrupted.

    How can we fix this ? Do you have any suggestions

    Thanks a lot.
