When an inbound purchase order is received, we might need to take the N104 value and resolve to a JDE address book number. There are multiple ways to look up the address book #, in EXTOL.
One such way is to chain-out to the F0101 (address book) and look at the ABALKY field. This can be a headache to maintain when we have multiple customers with the same address location value. Another option is to maintain a table in EXTOL. This can be easy to set-up but back-breaking to maintain. Non-IT users would not have access to the EXTOL tools to perform updates.
Am optimal EXTOL solution that might give us the most flexibility and allow non-IT users to maintain a customer location list, is utilizing the JDE Who’s Who table (F0116).
This table is keyed with the address book value (WWAN8) and can be maintained by customer service reps.
