Master Data (Intro)
Vendor Master Data, Material Master Data, Purchasing Info Record
Master data refers to information stored in system generic codes for a material, vendor, or purchasing info record. This information can be called up at any time when transactional data is being created in the system by putting in the vendor, material, or PIR number. It is important because it saves an enormous amount of time that could be wasted when trying to complete the purchasing document fields manually.
