check for duplicate BP when registering

Hi Guys,

for those of you who have implemented ROS scenario, can you please help me!

currently I've been asked by the client the following thing:

When a potential supplier fill's in all the necessary info on the ROS page, after presing the SEND button, my client want's me to check if this supplier already exists in our system as a BP.

Is it already some standard service for this or something?

I am very new to SRM and I would appreciate any help?

Thank you!

    Hi Catalin,

    This is not standard.

    You will have to develop a custom check. Please ask your ABAPer to check the name of registering supplier in table BUT000-Name-Org1/Org2. If entry in this field exists, then the registering supplier already exists.

    However please note that you may have an entry 'ABC Services' and registering supplier may be 'ABC Services Ltd'. So even though both suppliers are the same, you won't be able to prevent duplication in such a scenario. (You can ask your ABAPer to do a string comparison in this case 😉 )

      You can create a Z table for storing all the fields that are present in the registration form. This will also have the DUNS field. You can then compare this DUNS field with the DUNS field in table BUT000.

      Hope this helps,
