Does any one knows how to change it? IS this somethign that must be done thru IMG or the user can do it. I don't need to create new Bank just change the Bank Key

    Go to IMG...

    Financial Accounting, Bank Accounting, Bank Accounts, Define House Banks...

    here is where you add the new bank key.

    You also have to go to the following...

    Financial Accounting, Bank Accounting, Business Transactions, Payment Transactions, Electronic Bank Statement, Make Global Settings for Electronic Bank Statement...

    here is where you have to assign bank accounts to transaction types

    Our bank recently changed their ABA number. The problem we had were checks that were issued under the old number had problems when we uploaded the bank BAI files that contained the new ABA number.

    I would advise going into a test environment and evaluate the results of making the change so that you understand how it will impact the process of importing and posting the files received from the bank.

    Go to OY17, change the value in 'Bank Key' field to 4 (for the country in question), and save the change. Then it should be possible to change the bank number in FI02. Once done, go to FBZP -> House Banks and check at least one house bank which is linked to this bank country and bank key, to make sure things good look over there. I'd suggest doing this in a sandbox kind of system first.

      I did what you said and it works fine, however I am having problems uploading the BAI file from the bank to clear checks under the old bank key #. Do you have any suggestions as to what to do?

      Thank You for your help
