How to suppress vendor bank account for vendor types


I'll bet this has been asked a few times before but I'm struggling to find anything relevant in theforums. This really isn't a security issue as there is the option to suppress the bank account field in SPRO but I just wondered if anybody had found a work around or proper SAP standard S&A to resolve please?

The perennial "We need to stop people seeing vendor bank account details for our employees but still can see the 'real' vendors' bank account details!" question has been raised, I've offered the suppress bank account details field (load blunderbus and fire option) but is there anything I can do to refine this?

This is a fairly old 4.6D system due to be upgraded late next year and there's been no XK03 custom transaction mod made so far as I can see.

Vendors have been define as EMPLOY,..., etc so the split is there if needed...

Thanks for your attention - just wanted to see if this was possible?

    Hi David,

    It's not much help but by far the most common approach I have seen/used is to strictly control access to see any part of the employee vendor. That way you use F_LFA1_BEK + F_LFA1_GRP to completely restrict employee vendors to the responsible team and avoid issues with visibility of bank data and other key data that could potentially fall under the DPA (too many people being able to access address data etc - very subjective of course).

      Hi Julius

      I'm looking at the CALL SCREEN entries returned when searching program SAPMF02K and I'm lost 😔 - backed away and hid under the desk...

      We just batted back the Z tcode request we got verbally as I still think this is an SoD however the tcode is hacked to reduce the bank data.
