One BP is mapped to a Plant & a Supplier

Hello Experts,

We have a situation in our production system, A plant's description was kept on changing frequently to an unwanted description.

To repair this we used to run Plant replication program. But it was again getting changed to unwanted description. On more investigation we found that, The same BP which is mapped to Plant is also mapped to a Supplier from same back-end ERP system. Hence because of vendor sync Job, it was replicating the vendor description to the BP.

Now we need to repair this scenario. Kindly suggest us, as it in production system from more than 6 month.

Thanks lot.

Regards,

Nitin

Hi Nitin,

We faced similar issue, where in the vendor replication was not happening as the vendor# (in ERP) was already used in the SRM's organizational structure unit.

I guess in your case the vendor_sync program is updating the BP details (name) with the vendor details from ECC.

Since the vendor number cannot be changed in ECC system at this point, I would recommend you to search for the program "BBP*LOCATIONS*DELETE" to delete the plant in SRM system and replicate it again from the ECC side.

Test this thoroughly in DEV system by deleting a plant and then do it in the PROD system.

Kindly revert if this works.

Hi Raghu,

Thanks for the reply. We have resolved this issue. We were lucky that we didn't have any open document with that vendor. We unmapped the BP mapping to the vendor. Once again we replicated the vendor and it got replicated to a new BP.

Nitin
