Alternative payee in the document


In one of the vendor account group field status, I have made "Alternative Payee in document" as option. This populates "Permitted payee" field along with "Individual Spec" field XZEMP(check box) in the vendor master.

I want to use only the Permitted payee field because a vendor can have multiple address for payment remittance, but I don't want the individual spec field. Because this field if check marked, will populate "Individual payee" field while posting invoice (FB60), and the user can check mark this field box, which help populates an additional screen (like for one time vendor) and user can provide any name and address for the payee. This is against the internal control.

Since "Individual Spec" field XZEMP can not be suppresed using field status, we can possibly use functional module EXIT_SAPMF02K_001 to create a vendor master validation which will not allow any value in this field


We can possibly use line item level valiation which gives an error if the field "Individual payee" REGUL is check marked (or has a value). But this field REGUL is not available in BSEG for validation.

Please advice if there is any alternative solution through which we can validate field REGUL at line item level..
