If you want to change only the accounting data in a vendor master record, proceed as follows:

  1. Choose Master records ® Change from the Accounts Payable menu.
  2. You reach the initial screen for changing master data.

  3. Enter the vendor account number and the company code.
  4. Vendor master records span several screens. Generally, you wish to change certain fields only. You can select the screens to make changes directly in the initial screen.

  5. Select which screens of the vendor master record to display by clicking in the field before the name of one or more screens.
  6. Choose ENTER.
  7. The master data from the account is displayed.

  8. Change the required data by overwriting it or adding to it.
  9. Save your changes by choosing Vendor ® Save.

You return to the area menu. The system generates a message, confirming that the data has been saved.


If you have changed master records in one company code and want to make exactly the same changes in other company codes, you can distribute these changes to the required company codes using the Send function. To access this function, choose Master records ® Compare ® Company codes ® Send from the Accounts Payable menu. For more information on this topic, refer to the Implementation Guide.
