When using DEBMAS/CREMAS IDOC to create customer/vendor in S/4HANA system, since Business Partner (BP) is a leading object in SAP S/4HANA, system always try to create BP first, the system logic to determine BP grouping is complex, with this blog post I would like to bring some light into this topic.

Step 1, determine BP grouping

Firstly system will try to determine BP grouping


Step 2, determine customer/vendor account group

Then system will determine customer/vendor account group by view V_TBC001 or V_TBD001


In conclusion:

  1. System always try to use the customer/vendor number which provided in idoc 
  2. Customer/vendor account group which finally get created maybe not the same as the one which provided within IDOC
  3. System only checks view V_TBC001 or V_TBD001
