English [Auto] Let's do a quick hands on BP, so transaction code is easy. What BP business partner over here, you can search for existing customers. See, for example, you can search for existing customers, like just type in Wal-Mart and click start so it will search for all customers with the name Wal-Mart. And it has found two business partners and both those business partners are listed here, partner number 11 and 12. You can search by name, you can search by search term, you can search by number, you can search by address, so many different criteria. Now let's create a new customer. Right now, don't try to understand all of this stuff right now, take some time, so we'll go step by step. There are three ways in which you can create a customer. Or rather a business partner. For now, we are not creating a customer yet we are creating a business partner first. Remember, business partner is that shell where the basic data like address and stuff like that exist. And when you want to create a customer, you extend that business partner to create a customer will see an example of that. So we want to create an organization. This is called BP category. There are three categories and there's hardcoded person or group. We'll talk more about that later. For example, let's just now create an organization, what organization do we want to create? Say, gee. It says, choose the role, OK, and choose their own little for now, let it remain as zero zero zero zero zero and tiepin. De. Aerospace. Right. And the search term is a. Geet. The address is a one thousand. Denise De. And zero eight eight two zero. That's the zip code, Edison. US. And Angie. US. Right, and anything else that you want to enter, you can enter, if not, you can just click save. Just with the basic data is that we should be able to create a business partner for you. 61, so 61 is our business partner. Now, 61 business partner. Can now be extended to create, say, a customer and the same business partner can be extended to create a vendor also. How do you do that? Sixty one is there and it's in display more. You can't change anything, it's all great on. We'll click on the change button. All the polls open up. Now, you got to add a rule. The role to be added to create a customer master. E, f, l, c you 01. And zero zero, for example, let's just say FLC, USERRA one. This gives us. A new set of buttons here, you see that this was not there before. You could just rewind the video if you want. This wall is extending the business partner to a sales, you know, if you go to sales and distribution, click on this button. I've already created some S.A. US 09. 01. 01. And you're going to tell the rest of the data, like SEALs district, everything that is mandatory has to be entered, right? So enter sales district. And Enterprise Group. What else is missing, shipping? I think you need to enter the shipping conditions, right? Let's not enter it for now and just see what happens and do billing. But, uh, tax. Jurisdiction here. And. Partner functions, let's pick what is there by default, we don't care, Syrett. Area general data contains errors. Now, the difference that I wanted to point out here is with customer master Redesdale, one zero one. Every time. That you enter data in has to be complete, right? You can't go to the next data if you hit enter. But business partner is a really smart. It marks the corresponding tab with red dot, that means that something is missing, but you can still move on to the next step, you see. The red dot indicates that there is an error in that. So let's go, Philidor. All right. The languages in. OK, the redox gone, let's see what else is missing, civet. Now, how about the finance for the finance view is available in? This role, FNQ 00. OK, now you see the company code has opened up. So click on the company called Tab. And what's the company called, I've created a company called a zero nine. So that. Enter. And then you can pick up a recon account on any other data that is necessary for the customer master. The. Customer receivables, domestic. Enter. And see. Changes have been saved. All right, so so what have we done just now, we have created a business partner. Using the transaction, BP. And extended it to create a customer and to extend that, we have used to use our rules. If l see you zero zero. If l see you zero one. This rule extended the BP to create the finance data of the company called data. This rule extended the BP to create the SEALs use. Now, can you do the same with a vendor? Let's create a new beebee and extend it as a vendor with. This time, they're going to create a new BP and extend it to a vendor. And we'll see what are the rules that are required to extend the BP to over. All right, what's the transaction, BP again? Which shall we? Let's say create a window for target. OK, so new organization. Lecoq. And we're going to create target. Think and the system is target. And you can put some street address, say, a two thousand. Zero eight to zero. It is an. US. New Jersey, and then you can put in some phone numbers, fax numbers, so. All right. So this guy so we have created Target as a business partner. That's it. It's neither a customer nor a vendor yet. Number 62, now we can go to change. And give it a rule. Or if we are in a zero zero. All right, now, a company called. So like that. And which company could sell you a zero nine? Right, and then somebody can't account because that's all we need in the company, CAVU. Trade payables, domestic say he's a domestic customer. And then if you want to enter any other data, just go ahead and enter and just observe this field when there is internal and then see. So it is area general data contains errors. So what's the error? The error probably is with the language, right? So go there. And the English. And. Company Chordata. US 09. You're reconnecting decentered click savegame. Changes have been saved, 62 business partner is now a vendor with a company called Data Extended. But what is the other view that the weather has? Purchasing. You might go to purchasing. Select F.L. will be in a zero one. That's the rule for creating the purchasing below the vendor, right. So where does the purchaser of creative approaches are you, one zero nine? Right now, you can enter the data that's relevant for purchasing like currency or any other purchasing data that you should enter. And Black Sea changes have been saved. Now, if you go back to display mode. And then see the drop downs here, it will only list the draw downs that have been maintained, meaning the rules that have been maintained. Right, gentle partner. Don't worry about the financial services gentle partner when vendor company called Vendor Purchasing View. So what have we done here? We have created a BP number 62. And made it a vendor by giving it tools. F al v in zero zero, this gave it the finance view or company called View. And then f al we in 01, this gave it the purchasing view, so far so good, right? We have created a business partner, extended it to create customers, and for that we have used Tootles, FLC zero zero and FLC USERRA one. Same thing with the vendor, we have started with a blank business partner and then made it a vendor by giving it tools of 11 00 effluvium 01. In the Hanah world, this is the only way to create customers and vendors, you cannot use the standard old codes. Now, in the next chapter, we'll see some examples of how really BP is different from the customer, master, inventor, master, and what kind of tables are used behind the scenes, so on and so forth.
