Regions - Country

Dear Gurus,

I am trying to upload a customer master data .txt file using the LSMW transaction. This file contains 15 foreign customers. It has been checked for Batch Input Session. However when I am trying to upload the data into my client's system, I have a message of error because the country to which the customer belongs to is Serbia. Now Serbia country code is CS, and the system request a region to be input.

The problem is that there are no regions into the main ECC6 for such a country.

I have 2 questions:

1- How can I create those regions myself?

2- How can I instruct the system to bypass this, and make the regions for such a country not a mandatory field and therefore carry on my uploading?

Your input is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards

    In OBD2 account groups remove the region from required and make it optional.

    1. New country code

    The code elements CS and SCG representing "Serbia and Montenegro" are obsolete.

    Proposal for the maintenance of new country "Serbia":

    (IMG-Transaction SPRO -> General settings -> Set Countries

    -> Define Country in systems)

    -Country RS

    2. New currency code

    3. New regions

    The new regions can be added by following this path:

    IMG-Transaction SPRO -> General settings ->Set Countries -> Insert Regions

    RS 002 Branicevo District

    RS 003 Jablanica District

    RS 004 Kolubara District
