Not Able to Create Vendor Through PRAA

Hi All,

I am not able to convert employee into vendor through PRAA program. It seems the background program is not running. So it would be great if any one can tell me exactly step by step how to run this program and how to check its result. Also pls share whats the best practise of running this program in production.

Thank you,

    Best practice in production system would be scheduling it as a batch job and supplying the change file in application directory.

    Program RPRAPA00 (PRAA) creates a sequential work file in the specified directory.

    Ensure that you use a global directory that can be accessed by all application servers; a directory is automatically proposed.

    The work file is later create a session with the subsequent program RFBIKR00, which is started automatically.

    You need to give the file deirectory name in PRAA selection.

    Activate: update run, run as backround job, give name for job and session.

    Give valid user id and client number.

    When you run PRAA it will pop up message that session is created.

    If you have any employee that newly created, then only it will create a session.

    If you want to run completely this as background job, you need to create job for RPRAPA00 and RSBDCSUB (for session) with above selection parameters.

      Hi Deepali,

      you have to check one by one your "data issues". Welcome to the real world ;-)

      Sometimes you have to find a lot a root causes in there.

      At the end you need a monitoring for your update mechanisms - to check details of failed updates.

      After a while this should come to 0 errors.

      Hope that helps. Please let me now the "data issues" if you need help.

      Best regards,
