Hi Community,

right now im trying to use the BAPI_BUPA_CENTRAL_CHANGE . Unfortunately it just works partly.

It just works for the information stored in centraldata and centraldataperson.

The information stored in the tables fax, email, uri, etc isnt changed at all although i dont have any entrys in the error tab after the function call!

to mark the x tables i use the following code

      ASSIGN COMPONENT sy-index OF STRUCTURE l_bapifax_x TO <fld>.

      IF sy-subrc NE 0.
  <fld> = 'X'.

I although do check wether the updateflag should be set to U for update or I for insert in the next step!

FC looks like this:

        businesspartner           = im_centraldata_ma-partner
        centraldata               = l_str_centraldata
        centraldataperson         = l_str_centraldataperson
        centraldata_x             = l_centraldata_x
        centraldataperson_x       = l_centralpers_x
         faxdatanonaddress         = l_tab_fax
         uriaddressdatanonaddressx = lt_bapiuri_x
         e_maildatanonaddressx     = lt_bapiemail_x
         faxdatanonaddressx        = lt_bapifax_x
         e_maildatanonaddress      = l_tab_email
         uriaddressdatanonaddress  = l_tab_uri
        return                    = l_tab_return.

To change the address of a specific businessparter i use the bapi BAPI_BUPA_ADDRESS_CHANGE

Here i have the same problem as in the bapi above... the change of adressdata works, the tables except bapiadtel didn't work at all.

        businesspartner              = im_centraldata_ma-partner
        ADDRESSDATA                  = l_str_addressdata
        ADDRESSDATA_X                = l_address_x
       BAPIADTEL                    = l_tab_phone
*       BAPIADFAX                    = l_tab_fax
*       BAPIADSMTP                   = l_tab_email
*       BAPIADURI                    = l_tab_uri
       BAPIADTEL_X                  = lt_bapitel_x
*       BAPIADFAX_X                  = lt_bapifax_x
*       BAPIADSMT_X                  = lt_bapiemail_x
*       BAPIADURI_X                  = lt_bapiuri_x
       RETURN                       = l_tab_return

It would be very nice if somebody could help me out. Is there any other / better BAPI for changing E-Mail, URI and FAX of a Businespartner?

Best Regards,

Hi Matthias

This is probably the best BAPI to change those fields... Could you please indicate what are you changing with regards to BAPIADTEL (insert or update or delete) and also how you are filling this table?

As per the documentation, the sequence number that does not exist in database must be provided for new entries (are you doing that?)...

0 Kudos

Well i do check if there is already a entry for tel number, email , fax of that specific businesspartner in database.

If not i set the updateflag to I that the bapi should insert a new telnumber.

if there is already a telnumber i set the updateflag to U that the bapi changes the existing number.

same for e-mail, uri and fax

the data which should be changed comes from a web dynpro context node to the modify method which im editing.

so all the data is available in import parameters.

the following fields are filled with data:

TYPES l_tab_phone_type TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF bapiadtel.
    TYPES l_tab_fax_type    TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF bapiadfax.
    TYPES l_tab_email_type TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF bapiadsmtp.

The Telephone number change isnt working with BAPI_BUPA_CENTRAL_CHANGE

but if i use BAPI_BUPA_ADDRESS_CHANGE it works!

email uri fax isnt working at all...

And i hand over exactly the same data as in central change... so i guess the data is correct?!?

which sequence number?

thanks for your reply!

If you look at the BAPI documentation for BAPI_BUPA_ADDRESS_CHANGE , you will note that CONSNUMBER is a key field (sequence number)... and it states that you have to enter the sequence number that does not exist in Database...

Also BAPI_BUPA_CENTRAL_CHANGE can update the address-independent telephone data of the business partner. Is your purpose to change the address independent telephone data?

At first thaks for your help!

As far as i know in this case it doesnt matter if the telephone number is address independend or not.

it just works to change the number with BAPI_BUPA_ADDRESS_CHANGE so its fine.

I tried to insert, modify address independend numbers with BAPI_BUPA_CENTRAL_CHANGE but it didnt work even though i entered the CONSNUMBER.

As address dependened telephone number works for me, i might try to fix the e-mail, uri and mail address problem at first.

Do you have any hints to this?
