Locations with the same identification(Master Data EWM)

Hello all,

If you are working with locations with same id(like customer 1001, plant 1001, vendor 1001, etc..) and when you CIF these from ERP to EWM, you get an error like;

Location XXXX of type 1003 (BSG XXXX) already exists in APO

Message no. /SAPAPO/LOM060

This means your CIF integration model failed to create locations.


Follow this navigation: SCM Basis>>Integration>>BAdIs for Specific Applications>>Location and Business Partner>>BAdI: Inbound Processing for Location.

Choose one of these BAdIs for your case:

APOCF001_SYSDIF Identical location numbers from different systems
APOCF001_TYPEDIF Locations of different type with similar names
APOCF001_TYPESYSDIF Identical location nos of different types from diff. systems

After succcessful implementation, your locations are created with an addition to seperate their ids.



You get ‘PL’ addition for all plants, ‘SP’ addition for all shipping points, ‘CU’ addition for all customers, etc.. You can check EXIT_/SAPAPO/SAPLCIF_LOC_001 for more information.

Note: There isn’t any OSS Note for this(please share if you find, i could not find any).

Best regards
