China bank account Infotype 9

Post by janroovers » Tue Jun 19, 2007 8:17 am


We want to upload bank accounts into infotype 9 for China (molga 28).
As the bank account field is limited to 18 digits, we cannot enter bank account that are longer than that. And in China it is used to have them!

SAP gives a note for that, you should use the field 'Reference specifications for bank details' (P0009-BKREF). I tried to configure it in table T588M and it is marked as a input required field. But it is only visible on a subscreen that is used for IBAN numbers. They don't use IBAN in China! And even when entering this subscreen, the field reference SAP spoke of, is not changable!

Does anybody has a suggestion for this? Any ideas? Or people who have the same problem?

Thanks in advance!

Just in case anybody out there still has this problem, look at table T521A. The field may be marked as not relevant for your country.

I can't take any credit for this - thank Vincent ( ... an-3738972) who gave me the clue. I had the opposite problem as the field suddenly appeared after an upgrade and we wanted to hide it again.
