I am trying to load data from a flatfile. i have distributors', resellers' information and some key figures in my file. The idea is to find out relevant SAP defined objects. The functional team says it is business partner. On further information they say that based on the business partner type they would be able to differentiate between a distri and a reseller. I am not clear like what infoobjects i need to use for these two. My question is how can one infoobj(Bus Partn) be used for both in my data modeling. Please advice me on what to use or how to go about this problem.
centrino , this depends on the data you have. If you have all distributors , resellers together and also any other field that will help you distinguish between the three like Customers will have say status as 1 , resellers as status 2 or someting like that then you can use the same in object otherwise it is better to use different infoobjects.
welcome on board!
You can use the same masterdata object if, besides your IDs (especially if these are the same and shared!), you create and load an attribute in which you have to say: if D is distributor and if R is a reseller...
Otherwise you can also create 2 distinct IOs...
As you prefer (and as yoo need on the basis of your datamodeling requirements!)
Hope it helps!
(and reward the answers if you want...)
