Automatic Vendor Replication from ECC to SRM

Former Member

Hi Gurus,

I can't find the right settings to make the automatic vendor replication from ECC to SRM.

I think the problem comes from the "VendorRole" field. I don't know which data to type in. How I can know which vendor role is the right one ?

Thanks !

For replicating the vendors from R/3 to SRM you should have a vendor root org.

You have to use <b>BBPGETVD</b> transaction for replicating vendors from back end.

In that you have to mention the Vendor Organizational i.d. The role has nothing to do with the vendor replication.

If you want to replicate the vendors automatically just schedule the back ground job for this transaction using <b>SM36</b>

Hope this will make you more clear.

Thank all !

Each time I create a new vendor in ECC, I would like it to be automatically replicated in SRM, without having to use the BBPGETVD transaction.

I think there are some settings to be made in the SPRO transaction in SRM:

SAP Implementation Guide -> Supplier Relationship Management -> Technical Basic Settings -> Settings for Supplier Synchronization -> Define settings for each backend system

I have to type in a VendorRole but I don't know which one. Can someone help me on this please ?

You will need to do the following

1) Set up BBP_VENDOR_SYNC Job to run regularly (every 1 hour or so) using SM36

2) Create a new variant of BBP_UPDATE_PROG and setup this task as part of the Vendor sync job

Once the job runs run SE16 and look at table BBP_NEWVD_LOG. This table shows the vendors that were replicated.

<u>Your user must have role SAP_EC_BBP_PURCHASER.</u>

<u><b>Also look for SAP OSS Notes below :-</b></u>

Note 910621 - Problems with vendor synchronization in ERP systems

Note 914126 - Error in the vendor update with BBPUPDVD

Note 823629 - EBP Vendor Replication from R/3 BBP_VENDOR_SYNC

Note 1028641 - R/3 Vendors flagged for deletion not updated in SRM

Note 1029497 - BBP_VENDOR_SYNC: vendors cannot be updated

Do let me know.
