Replicator for DATEV SDD

The installation of a DATEV Pro workstation including a master data service capable of running is required for using the DATEV SDD replicator.
DATEV manages communication connections in a dynamic list of Telephone Numbers, Email, Fax and Internet connections. MetaDirectory uses statically assigned field for this purpose. The order of communication connections is not preset in DATEV Pro. For that reason, the fields will be assigned as they appear.
If the communication connections for a DATEV recipient cannot be assigned to a MetaDirectory contact, an additional copy of the record will be created, which will contain the additional communication connection data.

Thereby, the MetaDirectory fields will be filled sequentially as follows:
Communication connections by phone: PhoneBusiness, PhoneBusiness2, PhoneHome, PhoneHome2, ISDNTelephoneNumber, CallbackTelephoneNumber, AssistantTelephoneNumber, PhoneMobile, CarTelephoneNumber, RadioTelephoneNumber, PagerTelephoneNumber and TTYTTDTelephoneNumber.
Communication connections by fax: FaxBusiness and FaxHome
Communication connections by email: EMail, EMail1 and EMail2
Communication connections by Internet: WebPageURL


Detailed information:

The communication connection records, including their comments, will also be stored in an XML structure in the Custom0 field, with the exceptions of the specifically assigned Default and Management fields, whose comments will be written in the Custom1 or Custom2 fields.

An example entry in the Custom0 field:
The phone number fields should also be correspondingly enabled in the Search Wizard through the sequential population of the contact's telephone numbers.


Please read the basic notes for setting up a replicator on the Replicator Wizard page.
