Problem removing banks

Hello all,

I am having some trouble removing banks from Business Partner Master Data - Payment Terms Tab. It won't let me remove bank from this list. The fields are greyed out.

Regards, Luke

    As I understood, you are trying to remove the bank name from the Vendor/Customer master data. If this is the case, we can always change the bank name as it is used for the customer/vendor is always to be paid by the same house bank. The bank selection of the payment program is cancelled with this entry. If the bank field the grayed out then you can refer the link which I provided in my last post.

    Else.....

    If you want to delete/remove the house bank completely then probably you might get the error message as you mentioned in your last post.

    Can it still be removed if there are G/L journal posting tied to the bank? This sounds like it would be an accounting issue.

    Kindly refer the below link.

    If you still want to delete the House bank, follow the below steps:

    Before deleting house bank you need to consider below things.

    • Do not delete the house bank directly.
    • Make the GL account balance as zero for the house bank.
    • Then block this GL master
    • Then remove all the assignments of house bank and account ID in FBZP.
    • Close the check lot information for this house bank.

    Then this house bank will become ineffective. If you delete this house bank, the effect will be that for check information, it will show with incorrect house bank.

    If you are not concerned about these things, you can delete house bank.

    Regards,

    Thank you, Kondala

    I will try that. If I do this will the journal postings still be available to view on SBO or will they be deleted?
