    In SAP you cannot have an account code that is the same as a BP Code, this is probably the issue here

    Please answer couple of these question

    Are you trying to create a new Business Partner Master Data ? Or Are you trying to create a new G/L Account in Finance module .

    Have you had that business partner before and was deleted ?

    Hope this will help to narrow down

    Business Partner Code must be unique. Run a query:

    SELECT * FROM OCRD Where CardCode = '[%0\]'

    Then you can check if the code is already used or not.

    Thanks,

    Thanks to everybody for your answers. I found the problem, i have a corruption in the OCRD table. There is a record with no primary key, the code of a BP is in blank. So now this issue is on Sap side. Thanks again.
