Hello gurus,

When I want to create customer master data(business partner), SAP gives me message.

You can see message following. Is this customizing error or Is this Basis Issue?? This is SAP S4 HANA 1610 version. How can I solve this message?

Customer master data could not be updated (CVI_API-003). See long text.

Message no. CVI_BDT_ADAPTER050


During saving the customer master data the following error message was raised:

Language Key: Is a required entry field

Did you try searching in SAP notes with the message as criterion (CVI_BDT_ADAPTER050)?

I did that (3 hits) and the first is 2472778 - BP_CVI: Information dialog box "Customer/vendor master data was not changed" (CVI_API-003) See long text." after saving a customer or vendor business partner.

I have no access to S/4 systems at the moment to find out why the text that you mention in the dialog box is slightly different from the one in the note, but the note should be a good starting point for troubleshooting.

Hi Veselina,

Thank you for your response. Of course I looked at sap notes but I couldn't find solution for this message.

Also I couldn't solve this problem. I searched a lot everywhere but There is not any solution.

Is this bug related to basis? I thought that there is not customizing for it.

Hi Ahmet,

Are you getting this error while you save the customer master? If so, can you check whether language key is selected in the general data.

When I save it, the message come. I check language. It is not related to language.

Hi guys

I faced the same problem it was solved checking the fields in the aaccount group under Logistics - General-->Business Partner-->Customers or vendor-->Control-->Define Account Groups and Field Selection for Customers and checked the files by General data/ Company code data/ Sales data.

SAP has not centralized the values by BP wihch you can also make these fileds Opt. entry/Opt. entry in just one screen in S/4 HANA in Cross-Application Components/BP and also in the Logistics - General-->Business Partner.
