Create business partner from customer

Hello Experts

I have made the settings for the automatic creation of customer from business partner. I have tested creation of customer from business partner and the process is working very well.

My client requires that the customer be created in accounts receivable such that we then link the BP form customer or create BP from customer.

In trying to create or link BP from customer am getting message::

Customer 3000012 is already assigned to business partner 38

Message no. CVIC_UI015

How should i particularly sychronize this process.

Please help.

Regards

David

    Hello David,

    You can do this by modifying the SAP standard settings of BP role TR0600. Go to -

    Cross-Application Components >> Master Data Synchronization >> Customer/Vendor Integration >> Business Partner Settings >> Settings for Customer Integration >> Set BP Role Category for Direction BP to Customer

    For BP role TR0600, select "Optional for Customer". But we should keep in mind that this is SAP standard setting and might be overwritten during subsequent upgrade or release change (as warning gets popped up while making these settings). Document it as a check for any future upgrade.

    Find attached detailed document for Customizing this setting. I hope this will help.

    Thanks,

    Hi david mavi

    In your cases, If you want to disconnect existing connection of Customer 3000012 and BP 38,

    and you want to recreate and connect Business Partner with Customer 3000012,

    You can try to execute t-code 'BUPA_DEL', then Business Partner will be deleted.

    But This Connection data between BP and Customer will not be deleted. so you must try to delete this connection in the table ('CVI_CUST_LINK') by manually.

    If you want to apply this procedure by programming, you can apply this functions by 'Enhancements (BAdI)'

    Hi David,

    I have an issue where I am able to create a BP using external data transfer but my customer master tables are not being updated. The BUT000 table shows the record but the synchronisation doesn't seem to work. Any guidance/help is much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Rohit.

    Hi Mavi

    What happens is if you set automatic creation of customer in the direction BP -Customer, the system will automatically create customer and the point of saving a BP in e.g role TR0600. This means that when ever you want to link a already created customer to any BP in role TR0600 the system will give you an error.

    Also you automatically create BP from customers.

    In the case when you want to link an already existing customer to a BP which is to be created, you need to deactivate automatic creation of customer from BP.

    This allows you to create a BP without creating a BP.

    For you to click customer to the BP the setting to creation in direction Customer to BP should be made.
