Hi Moni,

we cannot say that the GUID is specific for linking R/3 and CRM tables. The GUID is a unique combination of chars and digits with different types of output (16, 22, 32 chars). It's created using function module GUID_CREATE and - especially in CRM - used as a primary key for database tables. E.g. field PARTNER_GUID in table BUT000 is used to link the data in this table with the BPs fragments tables (for example CRM*FRG0041).

GUIDs are used in the R/3 plugin as well, e.g. table CRMPARNR.

However, you could easily use another unique identifier to map this table. For example, in R/3 customer master data the customer number (KNA1-KUNNR) is the identifier and primary key in all dependent tables (e.g. KNVV).

Kind regards.
