  4. Depending on the type of number assignment (internal or external) used for the account group, you also enter an account number.
  5. Enter the company code and choose Enter.
  6. The first screen for entering master data appears.

  7. Enter your customer data and then save .


The system returns to the initial screen and displays a message to confirm that the master record was created successfully.


If you have created master records in one company code and require exactly the same master records in another company code, you can distribute the newly-created master records to other company codes by comparing the company codes with one another. To do this, choose the following path from the Accounts receivable menu: Master data ® Compare ® Company codes ® Send.
