11. What does the transaction "BBPGETVD" do?
a) It transfers the materials from the back-end SAP R/3 system into EBP.
b) It transfers the terms of payment of the vendors from the backend into EBP.
c) It replicates the vendors from the back-end system into the vendor organization (PPOMA_BBP).
d) All vendor master records are transferred from the backend and the business partner numbers are entered for these vendors in EBP.
Transaction BBPGETVD exists to download vendor information as business partner information from the back-end system into the EBP. You should take the following into account: whether the EBP is to assign numbers from the internal number range for business partners for the vendors to be copied; whether the vendor numbers are to be copied from the back-end system.
However, it cannot be scheduled to automatically synchronize vendor master data between SRM and R/3. Instead, in customizing for vendor synchronization, you define between which mySAP or R/3 back-end systems and the EBP you wish to automatically synchronize the vendor master data. This setting is necessary in order to start a job-based execution of the synchronization, so that the vendor master data that is newly created or changed in the backend is updated regularly in the EBP System (SRM IMG: SRM Server > Technical Basic Settings > Settings for Vendor Synchronization).
