MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
1. Introduction
The Multi-site and International Organizations concept refers to a parent or holding company that uses
one business software system, which is integrated with the systems used by its individual subsidiaries or
divisions (the sites). This document describes a business scenario involving a parent company and its
sales offices (sites). In this scenario, the parent company and the sales offices have a vendor-customer
relationship. The sales offices purchase at the parent company and keep stock as a buffer for their own
sales. The end-customers receive deliveries directly from the sales office.
The parent company runs SAP R/3 while its sales offices register sales and other business activities in
Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The business transactions between parent and sales office are supported by
the exchange of messages. The content of this document is focused on the step-by-step
implementation of business processes and integration between SAP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV. It will
deal with both functional and technical issues. The business processes are explained in the first part of
the document; the second part has a more technical nature and describes the Microsoft BizTalk Server
and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Commerce Gateway interfaces and custom SAP R/3 ABAP programming.

A demonstration environment has been set up to implement the scenario . The business scenario can
be simulated using a demo script that describes the transactions from the user’s point of view in both
Microsoft Dynamics NAV and SAP. Please refer to this document for practical information concerning
the use of SAP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV application components in relation to the scenario. This
document describes a single sales office setting. In order to build up a similar scenario, the reader is
assumed to have basic knowledge of SAP and/or Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
1.1 Business Transactions
The parent company sells products to the sales office. The basic elements of this order-to-stock
transaction between sales office and parent are shown in the figure below.

with release 5.0.

MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
In this scenario, the SAP parent and Microsoft Dynamics NAV sales office essentially have a vendorcustomer relationship. Information is exchanged; goods are shipped.
1.1.1 Purchase Order from Microsoft Dynamics NAV to SAP
In this scenario, demand planning is done locally at the sales office, and therefore, internal business
rules in the sales office trigger purchase activities. A purchase order containing quantities, prices and a
required delivery date is sent from Microsoft Dynamics NAV to SAP. A standard SAP sales order is
created upon receipt of a purchase order received from Microsoft Dynamics NAV. A SAP sales order
number is automatically created if the transaction is successful. The sales order captures the Microsoft
Dynamics NAV purchase order number, which is used as a tracking reference number both by SAP
(parent company) and Microsoft Dynamics NAV (sales office) throughout the business process.
A custom-made program and a standard SAP BAPI for sales order generation are used to transform
the inbound Microsoft Dynamics NAV purchase order into a SAP sales order.
1.1.2 Shipping Notification and Delivery from SAP to Microsoft Dynamics NAV
When the complete order can be delivered, a delivery is created after which a goods issue is done in
SAP. Both transactions are manual. The delivery note created in SAP acts as a pick request for the
warehouse to pick the order. The picked quantities are then manually updated in the delivery note. A
goods issue in SAP depletes the stock levels in the system and makes a financial posting to reduce the
value of the stock. This usually happens when the actual physical goods leave the warehouse to be
delivered.
A goods issue process results in material and accounting documents being created in SAP. The
creation of the delivery note, updating the pick quantities and goods issue can be done directly in the
delivery note (one transaction in SAP). When the goods issue is done and the delivery note is saved,
the shipping notification message is automatically triggered and sent to Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
The shipping notification creates an Inbound Microsoft BizTalk Purchase Receipt document in
Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This receipt automatically updates the Expected Receipt Date in the Purchase
Order indicating when the complete order (total quantity of all requested items) will arrive at the sales
office. The SAP shipping notification document number is also captured as the Vendor Shipment no.
in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Purchase Order.
The mechanism for the interface uses a standard SAP IDOC. The IDOC is generated via the print
program in the order document as soon as the document is saved.
1.1.3 Invoice Document from SAP to Microsoft Dynamics NAV
Since the sales invoice is delivery-based, the outbound delivery and goods issue will first have to be
created in SAP before the sales invoice can be created. The sales invoice message consists of the sales
price for each item that has been ordered from the Microsoft Dynamics NAV sales office. The total
amount to be paid to the parent company is calculated in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The Microsoft
Dynamics NAV purchase order number is also recorded in the sales invoice.
The invoice triggers the creation of an Inbound Microsoft BizTalk Purchase Invoice document in
Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This invoice automatically updates the Due Date in the Purchase Order
indicating when a payment is expected from the sales office. The SAP sales invoice document number
is also captured as the Vendor Invoice no. in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Purchase Order.
The mechanism for the sales invoice interface uses a standard SAP IDOC. The IDOC is generated via
the print program in the sales invoice document as soon as the document is saved.

3. System set tings and Master data
The business transactions described above depend on system settings and master data. The system
settings form the organizational and technical structure, and the master data is the basis for content in
the business transactions. This section describes the system settings for both SAP and Microsoft
Dynamics NAV concerning the integration of their processes. The starting point for the SAP
configuration is a running IDES (Internet Demo and Evaluation System). The Microsoft Dynamics NAV
setup details begin at the installation of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database and client.
3.1 SAP Customization
In SAP, configuring the system is called “customizing.” This functionality provides all the means to
configure the system and make it fit to an organization and its business processes. In other words, the
customization does not concern operational data, but rather, the business structure and business
process definition. Customizing in SAP is done in the Implementation Management Guide (IMG) and
has a tree-like structure. Screenshots of the relevant areas in this structure have been included in the
text below.
3.1.1 Customizing the Organizational Structure in SAP
A standard SAP IDES environment has been customized to incorporate the Microsoft Dynamics NAV
sales office on an operational and financial level. This paragraph describes the elements that have been
customized to create the scenario.

Description
Financial Accounting
Define company code 2500
Create a company code for the parent company.
This is the smallest organizational unit where
accounting transactions are registered. There
is one single, standard company code for the
SAP parent for which a chart of accounts has
been defined. All financial transactions which
involve the parent company are registered in
this company code.
Define company code 2510
The Microsoft Dynamics NAV sales offices are
represented as separate company codes in the
SAP system. The reason for this setup is that it
facilitates the financial consolidation of the
sales offices. (This is explained on page 25)
Define plant 2500
Create a site which represents the operating
area of the parent company.
Define division 00
A division is an organizational part of the
sales area through which products are sold to
customers.
Define Sales Organization 2500
All sales are registered on this organizational
level.

Credit control area 1000 is the standard IDES
control area for Europe.
Controlling
Assign company code 2500 to
controlling area 1000
Activate cost accounting functionality for the
company code. Controlling area 1000 is the
standard IDES controlling area for Europe.
To make postings to cost elements possible
(for example, to distribute the costs to a cost
center, or to make an internal order), you
must assign a company code to a controlling
area. For this demo, we used account
792000, which is also presented as a cost
element in controlling
(because of the SAP standard setup). Of
course, the decision to include a controlling
area depends on many factors, which are not
really relevant for this demo.
Logistics – General
Assign plant 2500 to company code
2500
A plant belongs to one company code.
Sales & Distribution
Assign sales organization 2500 to
company code 2500
Link financial accounting (company code
level) to the sales activities.
Assign distribution channel 12 to
sales organization 2500
Distribution channels and divisions are
linked to sales organizations. The sales area
can then be set up using combinations of
sales organizations, distribution channels
and divisions. For the scenario, a single sales
area is used, as there is just one sales
channel for intra-company sales.

Therefore, we would only like to see the
consolidation accounts in the financial
statement version. A new financial statement
was needed.
Change reconciliation account for
vendor
Reconciliation accounts for a vendor or
customer are setup in SAP for automatic
posting only. Therefore, you cannot post
directly to these accounts. Account 165000
needed to be changed to make manual
posting possible for this demo. Therefore, we
connected 165000 to a general ledger
account group without the check for
automatic posting. NOTE: This is a necessary
setting, without which posting is not
possible.
SAP Transaction FS00
The resulting system setting/customizing consists of organizational structures that allow:
•
General ledger accounting for company code 2500 (parent company)
•
Cost accounting for company code 2500 in controlling area 1000
•
Sales activities in sales area 2500/12/00 (Sales Organization/Distribution Channel/Division)
3.1.2 Customizing “Sales & Distribution” in SAP
Two sales documents are used in the scenario:
•
Sales order confirmation
•
Sales invoice
Both the sales order confirmation and the sales invoice used in the scenario are standard SAP IDOCs.
There are no modifications in the way the documents are generated as the scenario is based on
standard SAP functionality. All the parameters described below are available in a standard SAP IDES
environment.
The first step for sending a sales order confirmation is the Output Type definition for the sales order.
Output type BA00 is the standard type for sales order confirmation and can be accessed in the path
shown below. The sales invoice is set up in the same way, but has output type RD00. The rest of this
paragraph describes the process of setting up the sales order confirmation message.
8
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
The output type does not define one single medium used for creating the output. The image below
shows that there are various methods to output a sales order confirmation. (Printer, fax, EDI) Medium
six allows us to send IDOC messages and will be explained in the next step.
In the second step, the system can link the output type and specific medium to a business partner.
This is useful because you might deal with some business partners who want to have paper forms
while others prefer electronic messages. The condition record created below shows that sales order
confirmations for business partner 2510 are created using medium 6, which means that an electronic
message is created as soon as the sales order has been saved in the SAP system. This is not part of the
customization but is closer to transactional/master data and thus accessed in the standard SAP user
menu as transaction W11.
9
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
An actual sales order document (transaction VA03 – display) contains the reference to the output type
and shows the status of this output (whether it is paper or otherwise). This is illustrated below. The log
for sales order 9366 show that output type BA00 (order confirmation) has been created in the form of
an IDOC message that has been forwarded for transmission.
At this point, we turn to the configuration of the IDOC subsystem where partner profiles are created for
every business partner, with which the system needs to exchange electronic messages. Partner profiles
are accessed using transaction WE20.
Note: for paper output, the process would stop right here.
10
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
The sales office is represented as a standard customer. A corresponding partner profile has been
created to define that the system will allow three types of IDOC messages to be sent to this particular
business partner (outbound parameters):
Message Type
Description
Basic Type
DESADV
Advanced shipping notification
DELVRY01
ORDRSP
Sales order confirmation
ORDERS05
INVOIC
Sales invoice
INVOIC01
In the details of each message type, there are further configuration settings like the basic type and their
message control. A basic type is a hierarchical division of messages types. While a message type is a
generic name for EDI messages, a basic type is the message itself. In other words, a message type
groups one or more basic types. The message control parameters define for which specific output type
an IDOC can be created. For the sales order confirmation, this is output type BA00.
This concludes the setup for the sales order confirmation and invoice messages. The configuration
above allows the automatic creation and transmission of IDOCs and uses standard SAP functionality.

3.2 SAP Master Data
Besides the customizing described above, the SAP environment needs master data to process the
business transactions. The following paragraphs describe the master data needed to set up the multisite and international organization integration.
3.2.1 Sales Offices as Customers to Parent Company
Customer master record
2510
In an ‘all-SAP’ solution where both parent and sales offices operate within a SAP landscape, the sales
offices would be separate plants and/or sales organizations depending on whether they carried
inventory or not. This setting would make it possible to register the individual sales activities of every
sales office. However, the multi-site and international organization scenario demands another
approach where end-customer sales are registered at the parent company as monthly net figures
provided by the sales office. The replenishment of stock at a sales office takes place in a vendorcustomer relationship. This allows the parent company to capture its intra-company sales and isolate it
for financial consolidation purposes at a later stage. In order to create this scenario, the sales office is
set up as a standard customer master record in the SAP system. This customer master is referenced
when creating sales orders for the sales office. For this scenario, customer master record 2510 has been
created using transaction XD01.
12
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
3.2.2 Sales Offices as Company Codes in SAP
Company code
2510
Sales offices are set up as company codes in order to create financial postings for the consolidation at
the end of the month. Company code 2510 has been created for this purpose in the same way as the
company code 2500 for the parent company.
3.2.3 Products Used in Transactions
Material master records
P-100 up till P-108
Material Masters P-100 and up until P-108 have been set up for selling to the sales office. They are
finished products (type FERT) with a standard cost price. These material masters are part of the IDES
system and have not been changed for this scenario. Access the material master using transaction
MM03.
3.2.4 Price Lists
Currently two types of price lists have been setup in SAP with the help of transaction VK31. One price
list is an “Inter-company Price List” that provides transfer prices, which are prices that are agreed upon
by the parent company and its sales offices as a purchase price. The other price list is a “Retail Price
List” that consists of prices that the parent company has set as the suggested retail price when sales are
made to end-customers. The price lists have been created using the standard SAP price list with no
modifications. Only the sales prices (no taxes) are listed. The mechanism for interfacing is using an
IDOC. Only the “Inter-company Price List” is sent to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for this scenario since
end-customer sales are outside the scope of this scenario.
3.2.5 Chart of Accounts
The standard SAP international chart of accounts (INT) is used to do G/L accounting in the parent
company code 2500 and sales office 2510.
Chart of Accounts
INT

MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
3.2.6 End-Customer Masters
The end-customer master data will be interfaced between SAP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The
standard SAP customer master data has been used with no modifications. The mechanism for the
interface uses a standard SAP IDOC. Each end-customer will have a SAP customer, and this same
number will be used in Microsoft Dynamics NAV when an end-customer sale is made. End-customer
master data is transferred for demonstrational purposes but is not used in actual sales transactions.
C1_2510
C2_2510
End-customer 1 for sales office
End-customer 2 for sales office
3.3 Setting up Microsoft Dynamics NAV
The organizational structure in a Microsoft Dynamics NAV sales office is simpler when compared to
SAP. There is a company definition with an area of activity represented by a division. This division sells
to end-customers in this scenario and generates sales revenues which, at a later stage, are consolidated
in the SAP Company.
The next paragraph provides the installation steps for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The setup is based on
the FOB file bundled with this document (Microsoft Dynamics NAVRelease_MBS.zip).

3.4 Microsoft Dynamics NAV Database Modifications
The following paragraphs give a summary of what has been modified in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV
database as compared to standard functionality.
3.4.1 Import Overall (NAS startup)
•
Added fields to the Company Information table, which represent the import folders of the
different kinds of data.
•
Created a "NAS Code unit" which initializes a timer to process the import folders.
•
Added logic to Code unit 1 to use the NAS with parameter HUBSPOKE.
All data will automatically import.
3.4.2 Import of Microsoft BizTalk Inter Company Product Catalog [Items and Purchase Prices)]
•
Created new Microsoft BizTalk Product Catalog Schema for new fields, i.e. Costing Method,
Standard Cost, Item Category Code, Product Group Code and Ending Date.
•
Added functionality to Auto accept inbound Microsoft BizTalk IC Product Catalog.
•
Added “Start date” field to the Vendor Price Table (Item Card -> Purchases -> Prices).
3.4. 3 Export of Microsoft BizTalk Purchase Order
•
Standard Microsoft BizTalk Purchase Order used.
•
Fixed some Microsoft BizTalk PO fields that were not correctly mapped to the corresponding
XML fields.

3.4. 6 Import End-Customers
•
Created inbound table for the XML data.
•
Created new Code unit which uses XMLDOM to import & validate the material data.
•
Used XMLDOM because of some problems with namespace tags which are in the XML
document
•
Import is done in 2 steps
•
Import into inbound table.
•
Process of the inbound table.
•
This is done because it is now possible to split the process in two: importing and processing,
which can be done by 2 different NAS.
3.4. 7 Export of Financial Consolidation
•
Created menu option to start the export.
•
Created new form from which the user can enter start date, end date and filename. After this,

3.5 Microsoft Dynamics NAV Setup Remarks
Preprocessor: A pre-processor has been built because there are some documents that are imported
through the same XML Ports as other documents are exported, and there were problems with the
namespace.
22
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
File system for transport between SAP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV: The file system for transport is
used because this is a very easy transport. It is also the only one that is fully integrated into Microsoft
Dynamics NAV. Another possibility would have been MSMQ (communication components), especially
when both systems are not at the same location.
Costing Method for Items
The costing method is set as “Standard Costing” in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Expected cost posting is set to false for inventory of items
This is done to show that General Ledger postings generated by Microsoft Dynamics NAV for inventory
are the same as those generated by SAP, and thus not to complicate the consolidation. Financial
postings for inventory are generated only after goods receipt and invoicing of purchase orders.
Purchase Receipts and Invoicing
Invoices exported from SAP are imported into Microsoft Dynamics NAV as confirmation only.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV posts the purchase orders to invoice based on data available in Microsoft
Dynamics NAV and not on imported “Purchase invoice from SAP.”
For the purpose of this project, the vendor pricing of items, imported from SAP to Microsoft Dynamics
NAV, is presumed to be valid for one year. Only new prices are added for new items that are created in
SAP for export to Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
23
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
4. Master Data Upload to Micros oft Dynamics NAV
Certain SAP master data will need to be uploaded into Microsoft Dynamics NAV to facilitate the
business processes. This master data needs to be present in Microsoft Dynamics NAV before any
sales/purchase activity can take place. There are four sets of master data to be uploaded to Microsoft
Dynamics NAV:
Chart of Accounts
The chart of accounts as it is defined in SAP will be mirrored in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. A Microsoft
Excel file with all the BS/P&L accounts will be integrated in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This makes endof-month financial bookings and consolidation more straightforward. The file is transferred directly to
Microsoft Dynamics NAV for manual integration and does not pass through the SAP XI server. This was
done because it is a one-time setup and would be relatively time-consuming to process through the
SAP XI server.
Product Master and Product Pricing
The standard SAP product master structure is used for purchasing and sales activities.
Two sets of price lists for the products are created. One contains the inter-company pricing
agreements and the other contains end-customer pricing recommendations for the sales offices.
For this scenario, the Product Master and its inter-company price only are interfaced with Microsoft
Dynamics NAV.
The product master with pricing is exported to Microsoft Dynamics NAV using the standard Material
Master IDOC MATMAS03 extended with an additional segment to include the product’s inter company
price.
End-Customer Master
This master data is transferred for technical/demo purposes mostly. End-Customers have SAP sales
offices (the sales offices) assigned to them. Customer master records C1_2510 and C2_2510 represent
two end-customers for sales office 2510 for example. Exported to Microsoft Dynamics NAV using
standard IDOC DEBMAS06.
Message Type
Description

Customer master data distribution

4.1 IDOC Setup for Master Data Transfer
The outbound IDOCs are set up in a similar way as the inbound IDOCs discussed earlier. However, the
difference is that the partner profile for the outbound IDOCs is linked to a logical system and not to a
customer profile.
The logical system is the Microsoft BizTalk server, which is the ‘logical’ destination of the outbound
IDOCs. Second, there is no business trigger for the distribution of master data; this is done manually
using standard SAP transactions. The process of uploading master data is described in detail in the
demo script document.

MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
5 Financial Consolidation
End-of-month consolidation will take place in SAP and is done by uploading the total purchasing
amounts from Microsoft Dynamics NAV in an XML file to SAP. Both Microsoft Dynamics NAV and SAP
have the same chart of accounts with identical G/L accounts, so therefore, every account in Microsoft
Dynamics NAV is mirrored in SAP.
5.1 SAP Specific Settings/Financial Statements
In SAP, two company codes have been set up: 2500 and 2510. Company 2500 is the parent company
and uses financial statement version 2500 for the end consolidation. This financial statement is defined
by using the total inter-company accounts. Company 2510 serves as the financial connection between
Microsoft Dynamics NAV and SAP. Company 2510 uses a different Financial Statement Version: 2510.
This is a standard SAP financial statement version.
5.2 Interfacing with SAP
In order to post the purchasing-results from Microsoft Dynamics NAV to SAP, you must use a SAP
posting interface. This creates an official SAP posting. Therefore, we need to use standard BAPI
(Business Application Programming Interfaces). The interface used is BAPI_ACC_GL_POSTING_POST.
BAPIs in SAP allow us to post SAP standard postings with all the normal posting checks we need.

NAV.
•
Finished goods inventory are the totals of the standard cost price of the purchased goods.
26
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
•
Loss freight variances are the total of the calculated difference between the standard cost price
and the transfer price.
Showing the results on company 2510 in SAP
The results on company 2510 will be shown when running Balance/Financial Statement named 2510.
Report RFBILA00 is standard functionality used to display the Balance/Financial Statement. This
Financial statement is a standard statement.
Showing the consolidation results on company 2500 in SAP
In order to see the financial consolidation In company 2500, you must run RFBILA00 with Financial
Statement 2500. This financial statement is made with the inter company accounts to show the total
amounts of the consolidation.

6. Microsoft Bi zTalk Server
The SAP Exchange Infrastructure (XI) is used in the multi-site and international organization scenario as
an integration broker between SAP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The communication between SAP
and XI is carried out by IDOCs (SAP standard interfacing documents) and BAPIs (SAP Business
Objects). The picture below shows the interfaces.
6.1 Interfacing to and from SAP
There are two interfacing methods used:
•
IDOC
Outbound IDOCs are documents that can be created by SAP. For example, when a sales order
has been created and saved (trigger) an IDOC with all information of the sales order is sent to
another system.
•
For SAP inbound IDOCs, it is possible to trigger an action, e.g. creating a material. Another
system can send an IDOC with material master information, and SAP can create a material
based on this information.
•
BAPI
BAPIs contain functions that can be executed from outside SAP by using RFC connections.
There is an RFC to create a material. The structure to call this function is far less complex than
sending an IDOC with the same information.
Choice between BAPIs and IDOCs
28
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
Due to the complexity of IDOCs, the scenario uses BAPIs for the inbound SAP-interfaces. The
structures and tables as input for the BAPIs are less complex than for IDOCs. For the outbound SAP
interface, IDOCs are implemented because these are created by SAP and contain far more data than
BAPIs can return.
6.2 Interfaces
The interfaces for the multi-site and international organization model are summarized below:

6.2 1 SAP Interface Definitions
All document definitions required for the SAP interfaces are based on SAP BAPIs and IDOCs
information. For the BAPIs, there are input/output definitions, which can be imported in Microsoft
BizTalk using the Microsoft BizTalk SAP Adapter. The IDOCs are messages defined in SAP. The structure
of an IDOC can also be automatically imported in Microsoft BizTalk using the SAP Adapter.
29
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
6.2.2 Microsoft Dynamics NAV Interface Definitions
The document definitions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV are available in Microsoft Commerce Gateway.
The definitions of the documents that are not available in Microsoft Commerce Gateway (customer
master and financial consolidation) are added to Microsoft BizTalk Server manually.
6.2.3 Interface Mappings
All mappings are included in the Visual Studio package provided. The functional descriptions of the
mappings are included in the mapping documents (See the package).

7. Custo m Abap in the R/3 I DES s ystem
The demo requires custom ABAP programming in R/3.
7.1 Introduction
All the custom ABAP is described in this section. Of course, we are assuming that
you are logged on to the SAP R/3 IDES system.
7.2 Custom BAPIs
Start transaction SE80.
Create a new Function group with the name ZMICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV.
You have now created a container for the two custom BAPIs that will create the sales order and
perform the financial consolidation.
7.2.1 Z_BAPI_SALESORDER_CREATEFROMD2
This BAPI is creating a new sales order in the SAP system. It is a wrapper for the standard BAPI
BAPI_SALESORDER_CREATEFROMDAT2.
We use a custom wrapper in order to do explicit assumption about the business scenario and generate
an implicit database commit, so the update is made without an explicit call of a second database
commit.
Create a new function with the name Z_BAPI_SALESORDER_CREATEFROMD2.
Check the radio button “Remote-enabled module.” This enables the BAPI to be called from external
systems. Then, go to the Import sub screen and fill in the following data:
31
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
Go to the Tables tab:
Now go to the Source tab and follow the menu:
32
MULTI-SITE AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS: INTEGRATION OF SAP AND MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV
Utilities->more utilities->Upload/Download->Upload and upload the file
Z_BAPI_SALESORDER_CREATEFROMD2_SOURCE in the folder ABAP Source
7.2.2 Z_BAPI_ACC_GL_POSTING_POST
The next BAPI we have to make is a wrapper for the standard BAPI
BAPI_ACC_GL_POSTING_POST.
In order to make things simpler and to avoid having to call a second BAPI to do the commit end for
making the functional assumptions explicit, we created a custom BAPI.
The steps are the same as in the previous one.
Start transaction SE80 and open function group ZMICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV (if not already open).
Go to the left navigation tree:
Mark Function Modules and in the context menu, create a new function module with the name
Z_BAPI_ACC_GL_POSTING_POST. Now, go to the Attribute tab and again mark the radio button
“Remote-enabled module”.

8. EXTENDE D MATERIAL MA STER IDOC
The Standard MATMAS03 IDOC was extended to include Segment: ZE1KONH. This segment consists of
the material purchase price. The export program was updated to ensure that the Extended MATMAS03
IDOC with the pricing segment could be exported to Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Below are the steps to extend MATMAS03 IDOC with a new segment for prices.
To create a new segment with the necessary fields for material purchase prices, go to Trx. WE31 and
enter the Segment Type: ZE1KONH – Price list conditions.
Then, select the relevant fields below to be added in this segment. Save and release the segment when

•
Apply the following patches to the Microsoft BizTalk .NET Connector (in this order):
KB 884553
FIX for: The receipt is not successful when you use the Microsoft BizTalk Adapter 2.0
for mySAP Business Suite to receive an IDOC in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004

KB 894182
FIX for: The Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for mySAP Business Suite incorrectly converts a
Unicode IDOC message stream to single-byte characters (ANSI)
SAP R/3 Modifications for the Microsoft BizTalk SAP adapter
The Microsoft BizTalk SAP Adapter generates an xsd schema from an IDOC. The SAP Material Master
schema generation for MATMAS05 is incorrect. Microsoft BizTalk uses the SAP RFC
“IDOCTYPE_READ_COMPLETE” to generate the xsd schema. The function module
“SEGMENT_EXTERNAL_NAME_GET” of the RFC “IDOCTYPE_READ_COMPLETE” needs to be modified
so that it always uses the latest version of the segments independent of the SAP release.

10.3 Custom Modifications in Standard SAP
Sending materials
Although we put price information in the standard IDOC MATMA03, the standard BD10 transaction
ends with an error message. Therefore, use standard BD10 to send a message, and we use an extended
IDOC type ZPRICES. The reason is that the transaction BD10 always checks the generated IDOC, which
is ZPRICES, against MATMAS05; this is “hard coded” by SAP.
In order to modify SAP so that it checks against ZPRICES, the following modifications need to be
applied to the function module “MASTERIDOC_CREATE_MATMAS.”
Please go to SE37, fill in the name of the function module and change to edit mode.
You are now asked to fill in a modification key (if not available it must be required from SAP OSS).
Insert the code between the INSERT tags.
