Proactive listing and correction of the customer / vendor master data eases the synchronization (BP/CVI) process, thereby enabling a smooth migration from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA.
In SAP S/4HANA, Business Partner is the leading object and single entry point to maintain business partner, customer and supplier master data. As part of the conversion from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA, customers have to first synchronize their existing customer & vendor data records to the Business Partner. High volume of master data errors during Customer/Vendor to BP Synchronization phase results in laborious iterations of the synchronization cockpit to fix the errors.
As of ECC EhP8 SP12(*), SAP has delivered a standard Master data consistency check report that can be run pretty early in the conversion process (as part of the Preparation phase) that provides an exhaustive listing of the errors / inconsistencies in the existing customer & vendor master data records (with respect to BP data model).
The report gives the flexibility to identify the errors for a range of customer / vendor records To overcome performance issues in case there are millions of customer / vendor records, there is also the possibility to additionally filter by account groups and execute the checks The report provides options to choose from a list of business checks or execute all checks Forward navigation to XD02/XK02 is possible to fix errors for one-off customer / vendor records Outlook: As part of the future roadmap, there is a planned development to perform mass correction with direct / inline navigation from the error log to the respective customer / vendor mass maintenance transactions
(*) The report is also made available for customers in lower releases (until ECC6.0) via NOTE (2743494)
Launch the Master data consistency check report via transaction CVI_PRECHK You can execute the checks for Customer / Vendor (one at a time) Specify other details: Customer Number Range Account Group Select the relevant business checks to be executed (Select-All if all checks are relevant) In order to ensure faster processing, specify a Server Group (as defined by your Technical / System Administrator) Specify a description for the run; The description also serves as a reference to check the log at a later point in time Execute the report by clicking on the "Execute" button at the top A new RUN ID would be created which can be seen at the bottom section "Run History". Click on Refresh until the run is finished You can then view the log by clicking on the "Run ID" hyper-link As the name suggests, the "Run History" shows history of all the previously executed Runs
The log gives the details of the Run with respect to the Object (Customer / Vendor), #records processed & #records in error The ALV result table could be filtered / sorted by the Business check / Object ID to see all errors per Object ID or all Object IDs per Error category There is a possibility to navigate to the Object Details by clicking on the Object-ID (hotspot) which will navigate to the maintenance screen of the Customer / Vendor There is also the possibility to download all errors into an excel / spreadsheet and carry out a mass maintenance via XD99 / XK99
With the Master data consistency check report, you can get a quick overview or summary of all errors at a very early stage of the conversion from ECC to SAP S/4HANA. Fixing the errors at this stage will enable a smooth conversion by eliminating the errors to be identified at a much later stage during synchronization to BP.
