Hi Professionals,

We maintain Bank Account in IT0009 for employees. Our company requirement is to unique a field Bank Account P0009-BANKN. This means same Bank Account number cannot be maintained for same employee. Can this requirement be handled without using ABAP?

Hi Sami,

No. This isn't possible without using custom ABAP coding.

Best Regards,

Isn't it already unique by subtype? or are you not wanting them to be able to use the same bank account for 2 (or more) different subtypes? (and if so, why would you put this constraint on them? I mean....if I have "main bank" with account 1234....what does it hurt if I also have "other bank" as account 1234? The money would just go into the same account.

Hi Christopher,

I mean to say bank account should be unique for each employee number. If a bank account is maintain 1234 against an employee number 100, the same bank account number should not be maintained for employee number 101.


Ok....even THIS does not make any sense. Here is why......what if a husband and wife are both employees and both share a bank account they want their pay check (or part of) deposited into? That is NOT uncommon.

Also, if using concurrent employment/global assignment, it is very possible that an employee has several PERNRs and may use/have the same bank account on different records.
