PRAA-how to link personel no. in HR master records with vendor no. in FI.

Dear all,

I had a problem when I tried to use tcode PRAA to create new vendors from HR master records. Is it possible to create a vendor with the vendor number is the same with employee number (employee number is external)?

I recieve a message: "Acct group ZEMP use ext no.assignment. Specify account numbers". Is there anyway to fill vendor number fields with the same employee number automatically?

Thanks for your help,

    The link with personnel number and vendor number is that the personnel number is entered into the comany code segment of the Vendor master by the program PRAA. so you can identify the evndor according to personnel number, but it will not be the same as vendor ID.

    You could however, try the following and see if it helps (from the help fro RPRAPA00) - "If you want to assign numbers to the vendor master records to be created via external number assignment (for example, vendor master record number = personnel number), you can adjust the user exit routing 'SET_VENDOR_NO_BY_USER' (in include RPRAPAEX_001). Note that the account group of the reference vendor must also have external number assignment"

    Hope this helps.
