LSMW Idoc method

0 Kudos


I have one question regarding the migration of vendor master data using LSMW idoc method.

The vendor id is automatically created by SAP.

I am generating idoc to create the vendor master data, if one idoc is in error ( status 51) and if I reprocess it, do you know if it will pursue the numérotation or it will create the vendor

Idoc 1 => status OK => create vendor 1

Idoc 2 => status KO

Idoc 3 => statuts OK => create vendor 3

If I reprocess the idoc 2, it will create vendor 2 or vendor 4 OR as the idoc 2 is in error the idoc 3 should have created vendor 2?

Not sure if it's clear.

If you have the vendor number in your IDOC then it will create the vendor with this number, if you have no vendor number in the IDOC then it will take the next available which is 4 in your example
