Master data in accounts receivable and accounts payable modules are basic data for processing business transactions with customers and vendors. These data include information about business partners that are categorized into three organizational levels: general data, company data and purchasing data.
Even though standard master data records contain most important and recurrent information required for conducting business transactions, they are in some special business processes insufficient to model all partners’ information. In order to fulfill these special requirements, it is necessary to enhance standard master data with additional fields.
For this purpose, SAP provides dedicated enhancement spots that enable enhancing customer or vendor master data, without making any modification in SAP standard.
