Reason of payment in invoice document for all vendors

Dear All,

I'm trying to find the SAP standard field/functionality to accommodate 5 digits of number as a purpose of payment in vendor invoice document (FI, MM, DP, etc). This purpose of payment is applicable for both local and foreign vendors (all countries). It is for the government information and does not indicate anything on how the bank perform the payment to vendor. It is not related with data medium exchange purpose.

What would be your recommendation? Please advise.

Thank You

    Please check in OSS Note, if there is a standard OSS Note from SAP for the same for localization under XX-CSX-"AA" where AA represents your country ISO Code. If there is no note, you can use one of the fields XREF1, XREF2 or XREF2 to store this information. You can write a validation exit to check that only a 5 digit numeric entry is filled in for your vendor document
