Displaying a Vendor Master Record
Both the accounting and purchasing departments can have access to a vendor master record. You can display either the general and company code data (the accounting data) or the entire vendor master record (with purchasing data). Personnel in the purchasing department can display the data about purchasing, invoice verification, and inventory control for a vendor.
This topic describes how you display a vendor master record either centrally or for accounting. You can find further information on the purchasing functions in the MM Materials Management documentation.
Display a Vendor Master Record Centrally
If you have purchased, installed, and configured the MM Materials Management application component, you can display a master record centrally as follows:
The system displays the initial screen for displaying master data, Display Vendor: Initial screen.
Depending on the data you want to display, you can omit the company code or the purchasing organization.
A vendor master record spans several screens. If you want to see particular data only, you can select the screens you want to see in the initial screen. The system then shows you the corresponding screens only.
The vendor master record is displayed.
You return to the area menu.
Display a Vendor Master Record for Accounting
If you want to display only that vendor master data required by the accounting department, proceed as follows:
The system displays the initial screen for entering a vendor master record.
A vendor master record spans several screens. To display particular data only, select the screens in the initial screen. The system then displays the corresponding screens only.
The system displays the next screen that you have selected in the vendor master record.
This returns you to the Accounts Payable menu.
