when creating vendor in sap EWM it is redirecting to transaction BP, as transaction XK01 is absolute. Please tell me what to do in order to stop redirecting.

Welcome to the SAP Community! We're glad you've come here to get answers to your questions. If you're also interested in connecting with community members, please pay a visit to our Welcome Corner. You'll need to sign up, but it's a great way to interact with peers and connect with other experts!

Since you're asking a question here for the first time, I'd like to offer some friendly advice on how to get the most out of your community membership and experience.

First, please see, as this resource page provides tips for preparing questions that draw responses from our members. Second, feel free to take our Q&A tutorial at, as that will help you when submitting questions to the community.

You should also make sure your e-mail notifications are turned on for "Comments and answers to my questions and questions I follow" at #communications -- so you won't miss any replies to your question.

In addition, I recommend that you include a profile picture. By personalizing your profile, you encourage readers to respond:

Now for some specific suggestions on how you might improve your question:

* Outline what steps you took to find answers (and why they weren't helpful) -- so members don't make suggestions that you've already tried.

* Make sure you've applied the appropriate tags -- because if you don't apply the correct tags, the right experts won't see your question to answer it. That also means making sure you don't include unrelated tags. Members frown on over-tagging if the content isn't relevant to their interests, as the post will show up in their Q&A feeds and they get annoyed when the question isn't really about a tag that they follow.

Should you wish, you can revise your question by selecting Actions, then Edit.

I hope you find this advice useful, and please let me know if you require any additional guidance!

All the best,

Hello sanhithgouravelly

There is nothing you can do about that. Start using the BP transaction. It can do all what XK01 does, plus much more.

Notice, that redirection to BP happens in online mode. You can still use XK01 in batch inputs.

The redirection is due to introduction of business partner management by SAP - see the note 2832092 - Central Note for Business Partner Customer and Supplier Master Data in S/4 HANA

If you don't like the message, you can suppress it as described in the note 2402872 - Status Message During Redirection to BP Transaction from obsolete transactions That doesn't disable the redirection itself.

Best regards
