The business partner creation and maintenance contains several tables that are updated. Each field in the transaction code BP is maintained in specific table and field. In this document some of the fields pertaining to the control section and their relevant tables, field entries are provided.
In this document, a sample business partner is created. BP ID – 1000035241. In Fig 1 below the fields are blank to show before and after change to the fields.
The table BUT000 corresponding to the above screen is shown below before change in Fig 2.
Fig 3 shows the BP transaction control section after change.
Fig 4 shows the fields after change in the BUT000 table.
The dictionary entries for the table in transaction code SE11 provides information under Short Description to be able to help with identify the fields.
Once should remember that although the description provides information it is best to test and compare the entries in order to be sure of the table-field combination for each field in the BP transaction screen.
I will update this document or add more documents to provide more information on this area which is very useful when doing development and analysis activities.
