Duplicate Vendor Master

Hi Experts,

I am purposing vendor master to be created centrally to the client. How can I make it sure the same vendor is not created duplicate. What are the primary fields which i maintain so that system pops up a message for duplicate vendor entering. I checked with VAT number, Tax number nothing works. even the same name you can enter with all details same. What is the mechanism to prevent the creation of duplicate vendor other than the Zprogram or any exit.

Thanks in Advance,

1.If the vendor master record is created by the internal no assignments, then you can control thro' Messages F2144 - Vendor found with same address & F2272 - Vendor's with same VAT Reg numbers.

2.If it is an external no assignment, then control by User exits as posted in this thread.
