    Hi Burak

    Basically both the requirements are used for Bank transfer transaction for vendor payment etc ...these are the link between Vendor and your House Bank.

    As your bank having no International Status and not having these key only based on local status, you can use dummy key and IBAN just to electronic transfer if your Bank agrees to input them in their transfer file format just to link the interface program.

    Hi Burak,

    as mentioned. You can enter dummy bank key, but you need to be sure that your payment file will not include them. Otherwise the payment file is refused from the bank interface.

    There must be something for bank identification. This should be entered into bank key filed. You can also sometimes find the bank key on the internet when looking for your IBAN details...

    Hi Burak,

    we are preparing to move from ECC 6.04 to 6.07, so Enhancement Package 7.

    I noticed that it added an IMG activity called "Activate IBAN without Bank Account Number". I gave it a shot in our sandbox: it does what it promises, yet it still requires the bank key, which it derives automatically, given that your bank directory is up to date.

    Maybe you can add this feature from a SAP note as well, please have a look at the SAP Support Portal.

    Best Regards,
