The new Business partner in SAP and NewGL
Posted by Eva-Maria Fahrer on 11/12/2019 05:24
The Business Partner Model and the General Ledger has to be changed prior to the move to SAP S/4HANA.
Start with creating the sandbox environment with at least a good extract of production data and no old test data.
The Business Partner
- Run customizing consistency, to resolve issues via SAP Note: 2344034
- Run master data consistency, to resolve issues via SAP Note: 2743494
- Run transaction MDS_LOAD_COCKPIT to synchronize customer, supplier, and contacts data to business partner.
Run Master Data Consistency Check Reports:

And/Or, read this blog "How to convert existing Vendor/Customers while doing system conversion from ECC to S/4HANA" with other notes and other recommendations. If you get the question during the process, make your life easy and let the Business Partner ID and Customer-ID /Vendor ID be the same in the S/4 HANA System.
For the NewGL there is a Migration Cockpit
To start the Migration Cockpit , call transaction CNV_MBT_NGLM. See this link
SAP also provides SAP General Ledger Migration Service, two remote service sessions, one to validate and analyse and one session to test. For more information, see SAP Service Marketplace
To my surprise I realise the move to the combined Business Partner is still a topic for many members as well as the NewGL and I therfore publish userful links etc.
Do you have ideas or wishes or comments?
