Master Accounting Entity

Master Accounting Entity (Master AE) functionality allows the publishing of one BOD for a company regardless of how many divisions the company has. Master AE is represented by the M3 company value, for example, 770. It is not the same as the M3 blank division in the company, which is a real accounting entity and is represented, for example, by 770_.

This functionality is introduced to limit the number of BODs generated. Without Master AE, one BOD per activated division will be published, but with Master AE, only one BOD per company will be published.

Currently, M3 supports Master AE for these Sync BODs:

  • ItemMaster
  • SupplierPartyMaster
  • ShipFromPartyMaster
  • RemitToPartyMaster
  • CarrierParty
