Changing organizational structure in SRM

Hi All,

We are in production with SRM 4.0 since 1.1.2006 and using R/3 since 2003.

Our company intends to change the organizational structure (delete, merge, move

organizational structure).

We are going to copy our PROD systems (both R/3 and SRM) to other systems to be able to apply and check the changes.


1. How is it possible to replace “LogsysXXX” to that of the new backend for each attribute in the organizational structure, for every organizational unit? The attributes are not inherited data because they differ from one another, and there are many of them within the org structure (for example the attributes “plant”, “purchasing org and group” have the “LogsysXXX” defined as part of the parameter. There are about 600 users with 50 attributes each in all the org structure; therefore a manual process would not be acceptable.

Note: We didn’t copy the HR organization to the SRM org structure.

2. Documents which are being processed and at the time of “copy client” and were already created in SRM (PO, POR, SC), point to the old backend (“LogsysXXX”).

How do we change this pointer in existing documents to the new backend system?

Best regards,
