Bank account number is removed when IBAN is entered in IT9


I have an issue when I populate the IBAN number in IT9. The 'already entered' Bank Account Number is removed due to the message "Bank data are overwritten by the bank data contained in the IBAN". I am able to 're-enter' the Bank Account Number again and can successfully save however, is there a way to stop the IBAN from removing the Bank Account Number so as not to have to keep re-entering it again?

I believe this Bank Account Number removal issue is affecting my structure file that I am trying to create. Also note, the Bank Account Number is not removed if I use the "Propose IBAN" button but this button does not exist when I am trying to perform a recording via SM35 for my structure file creation.

I have found an SAP Note that I thought might apply however, this is for an older version than what I am using.

My version:

- SAP ECC 6.0

- Release 604 Level 0047

Any and all help much appreciated.

    • Hello Andrea,

      Thank you again for your reply and suggestions. My team however, did find and implement another solution that appears to have resolved our issue. Our resolve was to 'create' another table entry in T77S0 as shown below. The first enter is standard to enable IBAN but the second was manually created to keep bank account details from being removed (account number is actually overwritten by what's in the IBAN).

      If you find this resolve useful or correct would you mind indicating so? I am not sure how these 'points' work.

    Hi Steve,

    it seems your system is not set up to derive the bank key from the IBAN - or maybe it's not possible for Canada at all. But it tries to do it, once you cpature an IBAN.

    In that case the field BNKEY in table T005 should be set to '4', so the system knows it is not supposed to even try it and then clear it, because it can't. (In the normal config view for T005, this field is towards the top of the screen). This is normal procedure for soem countries and also used by many customers, who manually capture bank master data and don't use the SAP standard conventions.

    If it is set on 4 and still doesn't work, please check, whether note 1869180 is applied in your system.

    hope this will do the trick. Did it for quite a few customers in Luxembourg and various non-SEPA countries.

    • Thanks for sharing Steve,

      I seemnto remember there was a manual T77S0 entry depending on patch level. Is that following that SAP note?

      Anyway: fine as long as you don't have subsidiaries in the Eurozone on your system, as this switch is not country specific and would therefore switch the sepa logic off for all countries, enen those, who actualky want the IBAN to create the bank number.

      But if it's just the one country, you should be fine.

      Kind regards
