CRMXIF_PARTNER_SAVE, how to fill the creation date of the business partner

Former Member

we are migrating from a legacy system to CRM 5.0. We have the problem that the creation date of the migrated business partners is always set to the day of the migration. The customer wants that we also migrate the creation dates of the legacy system. Is there a way to do this using CRMXIF_PARTNER_SAVE or is a correction program needed that corrects this date after migration?

This problem is really going on my nerves as it also creates problems with the validity dates of relations, address usages, ...

I hope you can help me.

Kind regards,

I did some checking into the business partner functions module that exist below the XIF adapter and this change does not appear possible. You can look at the function module:

BUPA_CREATE_FROM_DATA which is eventually called by the XIF, but I could not find an exit in the function module that would allow for override of this data.

The only thing that might work is using the badi BUPA_GENERAL_UPDATE, and calling a function module to update the memory segment of BUT000, but I don't know if it can be pulled off.

Good luck,
