Who is an Alternate Payee in SAP?

A customer who pays on behalf of another customer is known as an ‘Alternate Payee’ (or Alternate Payer). Though the alternate payee pays on behalf of another, the system maintains all the transaction details in the account of the original customer.

There are three ways to ‘select’ the alternate payee when an invoice is processed: Read more

BDC Concept in SAP

BDC is used to transfer data from SAP to SAP system or from a non-SAP system to SAP system.It uses the normal Transaction codes to transfer the data. This method is used to transfer large amount data that is available in electronic form. There are two types of methods offered by SAP for BDC:

First method is called the “Classical Method”. In this method, the data that is read by the BDC program from a sequential dataset file is stored in a batch-input session. To run the transactions in the session, you need to execute the session. This method uses the function module BDC_OPEN, BDC_INSERT and BDC_CLOSE to generate the sessions
