Hi S/4 HANA Experts,

I would like to inquire if you already have encountered the same error (attached) while creating Bank in Fiori (Manage Bank - Basic).

In old (ECC) GUI, the maximum characters of Bank Key is 15 characters while in Fiori, it's just 11.

Appreciate your help to answer this query. By the way, I'm using S/4 HANA 1610.

Thank you!

Hi Dryan,

In ECC 6.0 bank key code length is defined by country

IMG: SAP NetWeaver -> General settings -> Set Countries -> Set Country-Specific Checks

Check S/4 HANA

Kind Regards

Hi Gustavo,

Thanks for taking time to answer my query.

Actually S/4HANA and ECC GUI has nothing to do with the maximum number of characters for Bank Key and Bank Number.

I found out via Table BNKA that Bank Key is a different field (with data element BANKK) from Bank Number (with data element BANKL) because in other countries, they can have both bank key and bank number as different identifier. But in our case we only have one. Thus, we'll be using the max. 11 characters.

Again, thank you!
