Import Manager Question

Hi Experts,

Here is my current situation:

I am importing roughly 25,000 vendor master records into an empty repository (with XML's). There are a few tuples (Company Code / Purchase Org) that often times one or the other will NOT have any information in it (LFB1 / LFM1). In fact, the iDoc / XML will not even have the segment in it at all.

Here's an example,

There is a vendor master record with a purchase org and no company code. The corresponding XML has the LFM1 segment, but no LFB1 segment.

After being imported into MDM (using an import map that maps all fields needed) I've been noticing MDM assigning a value to some tuples that are supposed to have nothing in them.

Using the above example, the Purchase Org tuple will be normal, but when looking at the Company Code tuple from the Data Manager Record Detail Pane, there will be a [1] -

value in the field (when it should be blank). Usually this means that there is one record within that tuple. When I drill into the tuple, there is no information...anywhere.

When trying to syndicate to ECC 6, I am getting a bunch of iDoc failures that are arising due to that value in MDM. I am getting errors such as "company code not entered". I am guessing this has something to do with MDM thinking there is a value in that tuple when in fact there is not.

Any ideas of how I can remedy this situation?

    This may be a bug. I would recommend opening a ticket with SAP Support. In the past, we've had issues with Imports, and they have always been able to identify the issue and issue a patch to resolve.

    Hope this helps,
