Vendor/Customer data into MDM and to ECC

Hi Experts,

Can any one explain how Vendor and customer numbers are created if the record is created in MDM? What is the actual process/method for vendor/customer creation/update?

Usually customer/Vendor numbers are created in R/3 or MDM?

And can any one share what are the issues come across while working with Vendir/Customer?

Many Thanks

    Number creaation can be handled in both R/3 and MDM. In MDM you can use Key generation property of remote system (Preferably qualified Number range). which can give you Customer or Vendor Number while sending data to R/3. or else you can generate Numbers using API's for particular records (assuming you have EP in place) and syndicate it further to R/3. IN this case you need to make Number range as external in R/3.

    If you want to generate NUmbers in R/3 then send number range should be set-up as Internal in R/3. When you send records (which will not have Customer / Vendor Numbers but MDM unique ID will be there) from MDM to r/3 it will create Number for particular record. further you can activate change pointer for the same which will trigger IDOC from R/3 to MDM and give you Customer / endor Number back to MDM. Import the same keeping MDM ID as matching field.

    I think we have number of threds on discussing Number range approach...have a look at that.
