External Business Partners to be loaded


We are working on CRM 4.0. We want to upload some external business partners into CRM. These business partners would be used in MSA.

For uploading the business partners we want to do an ABAP development instead of using ELM or LSMW.

Our Assumptions are as follows

1> When we create a business partner(Sales customer,Ship to party,Sold to party) or a business partner of type contact person through transaction "bp" the entry for the same is made in but000 table on CRM.

2>When we define relationship between the contact person and the business partner by editing the contact person in transaction "bp" an entry for the same is made in table but050.

3> While creating the business partner (Except type contact person) we mention the R/3 account group under tab "Classification". However we found that this entry is not made in either table but000 or but050 on CRM side.

4> On investigation we found that an entry for the account group is made in CRM table "crmm_but_frg0041" when a business partner is saved.

5>Since we have activated the mobile bridge the entry for the business partner/contact person is replicated in the CDB table smokna1.This table contains a field for account group.

We are going for an ABAP development wherein the entries of business partners from the csv file in the required format

would update tables but000,but050 and crmm_but_frg0041 of CRM. Once these tables are updated by our program the mobile bidge would update these entries in the CDB table smokna1 so that the business partners/contact person are available in MSA when the contrans is run.

This activity of loading Extrenal business partner is a one time activity.

We would like to know if there any other tables that need to be updated to make this functionality work.
