Customer is a supplier

One of our customers has few customers who are also suppliers to him. I know there is a report in AR ' Customer Supplier Netting Report'.
Is there any work around where by I can reduce manual work?
Can I have separte clearing a/c for these customer a/c and I use same a/c for the same suppliers at Payables?
Thanks & Regards

Yes you can definitely use the work around -
You must however remember that you cannot use the customer account in Payables, but you can choose the supplier account in receivables.
Please define a different transaction type wherein you can choose the supplier account for receivable account in place of normal receivable accounts. This is basically for better control over such supplier cum customer vendors.
However still the customer or supplier balances will not be reduced as far as AR /AP is concerned. One can see the effect only in GL of all debit and credit entried so this account. Hence one must definitely run the transfer to GL program to see the exact balance.
I hope I am making things clear.
Thanks & Regards,

  • Set Metadata for custom fields on Supplier (BUPA)

    I have to add a new field to BASIC DATA view of Supplier. I have appended the field in the required structures. Now, I need to set the properties of field to make it as visible and enable.
    How can we set these properties? Is it through implementing Implicit Enhancement points in method, /SAPSRM/IF_PDO_META_CONSUMER~GET_FIELD_METADATA of class, /SAPSRM/CL_PDO_META_MO_SUPP or is there any other way to set metada instead of using enhancement spot? Kindly guide me.

    Typical, I spent 2 hours trying to find it and could not, so I posted this thread, then I found the answer straight after.
    You need to assign screen 1215 in SPRO, not 700.

    Hi Krishna,
    To solve your issue, you need to know the linkage between the WF and event.
    You can go to t-code SWE2 to find the event linkage between Workflow & Business Object event.
    You can also open t-code PFTC, select the task type as Worflow Template and give the TASK / WF number without prefix WS, then go to EVENT tab to know the event.

  • Supplier not visible in the Purchase Order Menu

    Hi All,
    I have created a Supplier and a Supplier Site from the back end using Supplier Conversion.
    It was successful and I am able to see the customer in the Supplier menu in Payables and Supplier base menu in the Purchasing, but the supplier is not visible in the Purchase Order Menu in Purchasing.
    I have Enabled the following flags in the Supplier Site Level,
                   l_vendor_site_rec.purchasing_site_flag := 'Y';
                   l_vendor_site_rec.pay_site_flag := 'Y';
                   l_vendor_site_rec.rfq_only_site_flag := 'Y';
    What else do I need to enable in Supplier level for the Supplier to be visible for Purchasing.
    Please give me a solution so that I can resolve my issue.
    Thanks in advance.

    You will have to achieve this through APIs, Please do some google and refer Oracle docs.

  • User Error Needs Help Correcting - Repeatable Tag on Custom Section Attribute

    OK, I have v.6111.  Today I am manually putting the supplier_eq_create tag on all the the existing attributes in our custom sections so suppliers can add them when we send eQs. Unfortuately, I accidently clicked on the Repeatable tag instead of Supplier_EQ_Create in a couple of instances in our Export/Staging Environment.  When I try to remove the Repeatable tag, I get the error that says " row's Repeatable status cannot be altered after the row has been activated" ... we have not actually used the repeatable functionality of the tag.  I need to know how I can remove this tag from active attributes due to human error before I import to PROD.  Can the forum help me?
    Best, Beckie

    Hi Beckie,
    As long as you are sure that no-one has consume this you can remove this tag with a database script.
    As with every script make sure that you backup your data.
    With the following script you can find the rows that contain repeatable tag for a particular section template
    select rowTemplate.* from eaSectionDynamicTagJoins rowTTagjoin
    inner join commonEARowTemplate rowTemplate on rowTemplate.pkid = rowTTagjoin.fkEAS
    inner join commonLookups tag on tag.pkid = rowTTagjoin.fkTag
    inner join commonEASectionTemplate sectionTemplate on sectionTemplate.pkid = rowTemplate.fkSectionTemplate
    where tag.Name = 'Repeatable' and langID = 0 and Category = 'EASRowDynamicTag'
    and = '<custom section id>';
    Tags are linked to custom section row templates using eaSectionDynamicTagJoins table.
    You can remove the tag from a specific row using the following script
    delete from eaSectionDynamicTagJoins
    where fkEAS = '<pkid of the row>';
    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions,

  • MDG BP(role=Customer) vs MDG Customer

    Hi All,
             As I understand,using the Supplier MDG,it can  create a BP either as a Vendor or a Customer depending on the Supplier role chosen.
    When EHP6 MDG comes with a Customer object,what will be the overlap between MDG-Supplier(role=Customer) vs MDG-Customer.
    My questions:
    (1) I am unable to understand the difference between creating a customer only and creating a customer via a BP(using BP-Customer CVI Integration)
    (2) If I can create BP as a customer in the SAP provided MDG-Supplier package(ERP6 EHP5) ,why its always referred to as Supplier in SAP documentation.

    Hi Premjit,
    First, if you use MDG, you'll always create a business partner record (table BUT000) on your MDG hub. If CVI is active and you've chosen the appropriate BP roles for creating a customer and/or supplier, the system creates entries in the ERP specific customer (KNA1) and/or supplier (LFA1, LFB1, LFM1) tables, too. So you're right, choosing the customer role in MDG Supplier in EhP5 can create a customer record via CVI, too. But there are some impacts if you do this that you should keep in mind:
    1) Checks
    EhP5 does not yet support the checks for the Customer (e.g. required fields and so on). This can cause some trouble when CVI tries to save the data. Saving a customer might fail due to invalid data!
    2) Data Maintenance
    You cannot maintain customer specific data in EhP5. The out-of-the-box UI supports supplier specific fields (general data, company codes, purchasing organization) only. This features comes for the customer with EhP6 in a customer specific UI.
    The data that a customer would receive in EhP5 is the common data that customers and suppliers share with the Business Partner (addresses, bank details, and so on). Customer specifics like general data, company codes, sales orgs, cannot be maintained in MDG EhP5 (without custom enhancements).

  • Integration of customers and vendors- customer exit for renaming

  • Add custom field in SOCO search

    i checked in webdynpro component of SOCO search screen
    i got below info
    Structure       /SAPSRM/S_CLL_WKL_SEARCH
    View            V_WKL_SEARCH
    now there is already cuf fields structure in /SAPSRM/S_CLL_WKL_SEARCH and its clearly seen that on adding more fields here it will get mapped to context of the above view then i could add the fields on the view and map them
    the question is where is SPRO metadata config to enhance the above structure ?
    i dont want to enhance it manually bcoz earlier i did in other structures and faced lot of problems
    SPRO - SAP supplier relation mgmt -- cross appl basic settings -- Extns and field control -- Configure customer fields. shows below options
    Append for Customer Cross-Document Database Fields on Header
    Append for Customer Cross-Document Non-Database Fields on Header
    Append for Customer Fields on Auction Header
    Append for Customer Fields on Supplier List Header
    Append for Customer Fields on RFx Header
    Append for Customer Fields on Confirmation Header
    Append for Customer Fields on Contract Header
    Append for Customer Fields on Invoice Header
    Append for Customer Fields on Purchase Order Header
    Append for Customer Fields on RFx Response Header
    Append for Customer Fields on Shopping Cart Header
    which of these is for the SOCO search structure ?
    also, once these fields are added, there shud be no need to do anything in the method /SAPSRM/IF_CLL_DODM_WKL_SEARCH~SEARCH i assume.
    its pretty strightforward code, looks like accomodating the custom fields in search criteria
    my doubt is main about the meta data config for this search structure
    i checked couple of threads
    my doubt is why they are talking about different structure than   /SAPSRM/S_CLL_WKL_SEARCH ?
    any inputs are welcome

    Hi Dan,  
    Thanks for your post.
    As far as I know the full-text search on support field data type of PlainText and
    HTML and the Title field. Please refer to the Full-text and partial word searches section in this document:
    For this custom string field, we suggest you search it using work item query. To change work item field index, you can execute the
    witadmin indexfield command line to do that.

  • Can I use one Business Partner repository for Vendor and Customer?

    Can I use one Business Partner repository for Vendor and Customer? or do we have to use Vendor and Customer Repository separately. How can we do that? What are the pros and cons? can any one provide some examples:

    Hi Deepak
    The key purpose of SAP "enabling" the facility of multiple main tables in a repository is to primarily "manage" those master data objects that are related to each other. Typical examples will be a) Customer - Material, b) Supplier - Material, etc.
    While, it is pretty easy to add multiple main tables in a repository, it is also important to understand the purpose of doing so based on the business requirements.
    Besides, you got to be aware that in case you are "fixing" any issues with one main table (master data object) for which you have to unload the repository, the users will not be able to use the repository that has a main table defined for other master data object. Hence, there are pros and cons of using this capability of multiple main tables.
    So, it is really important to understand the "W's" - What, Why, When, Where, Who of Data modeling before actually working on the "H" - How to in the SAP MDM tool.
    Hope this helps.

  • When a context node use non-singleton, how to invoke the supply funtion eve

    when a context node use non-singleton, how to invoke the supply funtion everytime the lead selection is changed ?

    Hi wei,
    <b>Non-singleton nodes:</b>
    Web Dynpro allows you to define non-singleton nodes. Each non-singleton node has one node instance for each node element of the parent collection at runtime. The advantage is that each instance can be accessed directly. When using non-singleton nodes, the nodes are only created when the node values are retrieved. This can save resources that otherwise would slow down the performance of the application.
    <b>Supply function:</b>
    The Web Dynpro tools also automatically enhance the corresponding controller class with a supply function including the user coding area contained in it
    Supply functions are implemented as methods of type
    <b>public void supplyChildNodeElements(SomeChildNode node,
    in a Web Dynpro controller (view controller or custom controller). Supply functions and context nodes have a 1..1 relationship, that is, supply functions are specific for individual context nodes. Under certain conditions, supply functions are called by pages in the Web Dynpro runtime environment.
    Hope this helps u,
