    hi Chandra,

    thiis not possible (i. e. technically possible, but this is a thing you should not even think about). Changing the length of standard domains, can lead to things, no one is aware about.

    why the client is asking for that? Is the field too short for chinese bank accounts? In this case SAP has to provide a solution.

    Hi,

    The situations where REGUH-ZBNKN (bank account number) is longer than 18 digits. in this case the bank account number continues on field REGUH-BKREF (reference).

    You have to implement OSS#96624 to solve this problem

    Regards.

    (Finding more detail in OSS Note)

    <b>Symptom</b>

    This note refers to business partner bank account numbers with more than 18 digits.

    Banks of certain countries use bank account numbers with more than 18 digits. Consequently, these bank account numbers cannot be stored completely in the bank account number field of the R/3 System, but are to be used for the payment transactions with the bank in the data medium exchange (DME).

    <b>Solution</b>

    Depending on the country of the bank of the business partner, we recommend that you enter that part of the account number which does not fit into the respective 'Bank account number' input field in the 'Reference specifications for bank details' field or in the 'Bank control key' field of the customer or vendor master data.

    We recommend that you use the fields in the R/3 System as follows:

    <b>China</b>- Various account number formats, some have more than 18 digits

    - Save the first 18 digits in the 'Bank account number' field

    - If the Chinese bank account number is longer than 18 digits, the

    remaining digits are saved in the 'Reference specifications for bank

    details' field.
