SPS Cloud EDI references trading partner (Business Partner) items by the following:

  1. Item Code: Exact match of the Vendor Part Number on the 850 with the Item Code in SAP Business One.
  2. Business Partner (BP) Catalog Number: Exact match of the Buyer Part Number on the 850 with the Catalog Number for the Trading Partner customer number in SAP Business One.
  3. Consumer Package Code (CPC): Exact match of CPC code on the 850 with the CPC Code in SAP Business One.
  4. 850 will not load if none of the above checks is met, or if there are multiple items in SAP Business One for the CPC code.

1. Item Code

Item Code is a direct (one to one) reference to the Vendor Part Number. This can be viewed on the Item Master Data: Inventory > Item Master Data.

2. Business Partner Catalog Numbers

The Business Partner Catalog Numbers section (accessible from Inventory > Item Management > Business Partner Catalog Numbers) is used to map trading partners’ item numbers (Buyer Part Number) to SAP Business One item codes.
