    Hi

    This is a standard field length and unfortunately should not be changed. There are wider implications in terms of data posting and reporting. The field is used across modules. If however, the concern is on the recycling of tax codes, the below blog might be of help to you to reuse some of the existing tax codes.

    Hi,

    You can not create a tax codes more than 2 digits. It is a standard design. As a work around, in the previous replies there a blog which explains to run the program for check the tax codes which are created but not used for posting. So go through it and find out the tax codes and change the description & rates accordingly.

    Regards,
