Hi Sir,Ma'am,

I would like to ask if there is automatic blocking of vendor code in SAP using validity period/duration? Standard tcode XK01 doesn't have a field for validity period/duration.

Do we need to setup a custom tcode for these transaction including the standard tcode with the field validity period.?

Thank you

there is no such automatic blocking in the vendor master, there is also no validity date in a vendor master

blocking of vendors by validity periods can be done in the source list.

After you upgrade to S4HANA the XK01 transaction will be replaced with the BP transaction for Business Partner maintenance, where vendor is just a role of a business partner, and this role can be inactivated with validity periods (if I remember right from a presentation, as I am not yet on S4HANA)

If you can't wait until you upgrade then you need to develop it on your own.
