Hi Syed,

<b>**remember to reward points if this helps you**</b>

Firstly, both EDSDC and EDPAR are used for inbound sales processing only. They are not considered by the purchasing module of SAP.

What you can do with EDPAR is map the customers external partner numbers (their plants/ship to addresses) to your own internal customer numbers in KNA1. Thus if the customer calls its delivery address ABC, and you have a customer record for this ship to address of 123, then you can put the mapping in EDPAR. This will be translated by the IDOC_INPUT_ORDERS FM when the idoc enters your system. This prevents you having to "hard code" customer number mappings in your EDI translation software.

With EDSDC, however, you are simply automatically allocating a sales area (sales org, distr. chan., division) to an incoming sales order from a customer. You enter the internal SAP customer number, and the vendor number (the number by which the customer identifies your company) and then specify the sales area and the document type against which the sales order will be created. Again, this is processed in the FM IDOC_INPUT_ORDERS.

Thanks for Brad for his expert opinion.
