Creation of Master Data in SAP
Customer Master is created by using two Transaction codes. One transaction code is XD01 through which you can create the master with sales view and the other transaction code is FD01, used to create master record with FI view.
The concept of vendor account group and general ledger account groups is similar to customer account Group. The only difference between these groups is that these are created from different transaction codes.
