    Duplicate Suppliers Prevention
    Establish Supplier Relationship for Existing Parties

    We want to create a supplier who is already defined as a customer in the application. When we create the supplier with the same Tax Registration Number, the system displays an error and does not allow us to proceed. How do we register this party as a supplier?

      The Tax Registration Number validation is performed to ensure that there are no duplicate parties in the application. The recommended approach to handle this is to use the supplier de-duplication feature. When you create a supplier, the application will present the potential matches of current parties and let you decide whether an existing party can be used or a new supplier needs be created. When you find the customer party that you also want to create as a supplier, the system will help you to establish a supplier relationship for the same party instead of creating duplicate parties in the application.

      For detailed information, you can refer to the Supplier De-duplication feature in the Supplier Data Quality Management release training.
