After the S/4HANA Migration departments who typically create/maintain customer and vendor accounts will now create a new account called the Business Partner (BP).
Impacted Users: Central departments who create and maintain Customer or Vendor accounts (e.g., Procurement Services, FSD, Telecommunications).
IMPORTANT: The Business Partner will NOT impact how user process transactions or run reports in FIS, since it will NOT appear or be required in any FIS transaction screens (e.g., FB60 – Invoice, FB50 – G/L Account Postings). It is only relevant for particular central departments who create/maintain them. Divisional staff who process in FIS will continue to use the same accounts (e.g., vendor/customer accounts) as they did prior the S/4HANA Migration.
This article focuses on how these central users can display Business Partners in the S/4HANA system.
In S/4HANA, the transactions below will redirect users to the central BP transactions:
Display Vendor: XK03/FK03 – Redirects to S/4HANA ‘BP’ Transaction Code.
To Search and Display a Vendor Account (Business Partner): T-Code – “FK03/XK03 – Display vendor”. FK03 Transaction will redirect to ‘BP’ Transaction.
***Note that all the existing search tabs will be available in S/4HANA as well.
Business Partner Screens– ECC Vendor Master Record to S/4HANA mapping.
Note: ‘Individual Entries’ field in ECC has been renamed to ‘Payee in Document’ in S/4Hana Business Partner.
Note: Personnel number for non-YERD vendors will be moved to the Search Term 2 filed. (To be confirmed).
