SAP S/4HANA: Copy Feature in Customer Master and Supplier Master Apps
The Copy feature in Customer Master and Supplier Master apps in SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud helps you to create new master records by copying an existing customer master that have similar data.
You can select a master data record and click the Copy button to copy it. This opens up the new master data record in draft mode, so that you can make necessary changes before saving the new record.
There are two types of copy: Copy all data and Copy with Preselection.
- Copy All – After selecting the master record to be copied, when you choose the Copy button, all the data get copied and a new customer/supplier master record opens up in draft mode.
- Copy with Preselection – When you choose the Copy with Preselection option, only the predefined data (based on a backened function module) get copied. The predefined fields include Company Codes, Sales Area (Customer Master), Purchasing Org (Supplier Master), Roles, Liable for VAT, DME Indicator etc.
