Clarification on Info record

Hi,

I was going through SAP document ; data extracted from TSCM50 : Part 1 ; Page 232

A purchasing info record can be valid at both purchasing organization level

and plant level. It also includes general data that is valid cross-client for every

purchasing organization or every plant.

What does cross client here implies.?

Suppose we have 2 clients ( say 700 and 710 ) the same domain i.e we can do transport through SSC1.

Can I get few data which is stored in EINA table in both the client if I maintained in one client.Plz. clarify..

Regards

Sunami

    Hi,

    Client in this context means data is valid for all the Plants and Purchase Org. That is the concept of Master Data, that you share master data, though you can always maintain the Info. Record at Pur. Org and Plant levels.

    One example of this: You can mark a vendo (Regular) in Purchasing Info. Record at client level. Then this vendor for the Material combination will work as Fixed vendor at the client wide.

    Hope I helped!

    Dear,

    In simple, irrespective of all plants and purchase organizations available or not in clients, info record - general data exists and valid at client level.

    Like material master ZZZ basic data is valid at client level. if in client 700 this material extended for plant ABC and in client the same material extended for 710 but not 700.

    But the material ZZZ basic data is valid at client level and active, similar to Info records - general data.

    If you go to Info record - General data screen and press F1 help on each filed and get technical data, all those fields are available in EINA table and valid as cross client.

      The term "general" is self explanatory. This data is general hence valid client wide.

      SAP works from Specific to general.

      Ex.

      Plant + Pur. Org ( Most Specific) (

      Pur. Org (Less specific compared to Plant + Pur. Org. because Pur. can have many plants)

      General (Valid cross-client)

      When a source is searched system looks for a vendor + material combination from top to down. Specific to general.

      I hope you got it now!
