Country-specific checks

Is there a process of loading country-specific checks for all other countries? We have the data loaded in SAP but changes may have taken place since the load. Do any patches or OSS notes cover all of the countries? We are running into issues where postal code is not the right length when creating vendors. Can checks be turned off so that we don't have to update country each time something comes up?

    SAP does not change your customizing. The most recent settings are delivered with the software, any country specific change over the time is your own task to follow up in your system. SAP may issue SAP notes in case that such change also requires coding changes.

    You cannot just change the customizing to some other setting without having a transition plan to correct all existing data to meet the new setting. If a country changes its postal codes from 4 digits to 5 digits like it happend 1993 in Germany then you need a project with probably several hundred man-days to achieve that transition.

    Of course you can customize your country specific checks to accept everything but this does not really elevate your data quality. And it would be in contradiction to your expectation that SAP should change the customizing via a patch or OSS notes.
