Define Sensitive Fields for Dual Control (Vendors) /(Customers)

Dear All,

We are using Dual control functionality for vendors, configured following fields as sensitive fields.

LFB1-AKONT Reconciliation acct

LFB1-BUSAB Accounting clerk

LFB1-ZTERM Payment terms


LFBK-BANKN Bank Account

I would like to know is this settings is a client level or company code level or account group level? when we activate this functionality?

Is it possible to activate this only for certain companies? If so can you please tell me how can we do that?

Many thanks for your inputs.

    This definitions are client level.

    S_ALR_87003179 Vendor

    S_ALR_87003378 Customer

    You have to develop a user exit to defined a Company Code validation.

    Best Regards

    sensitive field setting is client level. It is not possible to define for specific company code.

    Note: Vendors are created at client level. So any change made will affect all company code in the client. If you want to manage vendor master record more restriction, you may use T code OBD3, OB24, OB23

    Hi Krispy,

    Sensitive fields are client level. According to me not possible to restrict the same through User exit also.

    Vendors are created at client level. Regarding restriction of the vendors according to the companies, this I think can be done through user exit in the way that a field which is free for selection from the vendor master like 'Minority Indicator' can be taken and then some entries in the master is to be done for the minority indicators. Then the same is to be maintained in the vendor master through mass change and user exit or validation is to be writtened to when system checks for sensitive fields by which 2 indicatos to be created one when the sensitive fields is to be taken care off and other when its to be ignored and then code can be written, This requires decent amount of efforts and whether it will work or not is to be checked and thorough testing is required.
