What is the different SRM between trans BP and Manage Business Partners?
Please can someone explain why two screens exist for maintaining vendor codes in SAP, I.E. transaction code BP and the web menu option Manage Business Partners. What is the difference between the two or are they for the same function?

check the documentation under SRM IMG
>SAP Implementation Guide>Cross-application components >SAP Business Partner>Business Partner >Basic Settings>Number Ranges and Groupings-->Define Groupings and Assign Number Ranges
if your R/3 vendor code falls in the no range EB , & you choose R/3 vendor code in BBPGETVD
SRM will retain the ECC vendor code as BP no also
but if it falls out SRM will give internal BP no
you can create yr own no range and try to map all ECC vendor codes
