Bank Account number is not valid. Error Message AR124

Hi Experts,

While updating vendor master bank account number we are getting error Bank Account number is not valid. Error Message AR124.

Vendor country is Great Britain. There is already one account for GB and we are adding one more for Finland FI. At the time of adding account number for Finland we are getting this error.

I have checked in OY17 for the length and maximum value without gaps. Account number is correct but couldnt save the changes.

Is there any SAP notes to applied for this inconsistencies. We are using SAP ECC 6.0

Help in this regard is highly appreciated.

Thanks & regards

    Dear Nara,

    please take care of the SAPnote 109589.

    The reason of the problem could be either incorrect bank account number

    (you should check this first with your business partner) or

    that the check routine implemented in SAP is not up-to-date. The problem

    which we have to deal with is that there are many banks using another

    check algorithm which is different one or there are some exceptions

    which were not published. In such a case I

    recommend switching off the check to be able to save the account number.

    If you are sure, that the given account number is the correct one,

    you can deactivate the country specific check routine for a while:

    transaction OY17, deactivate the further check 'Bank data', goto vendor

    master data and enter the bank account and go again to OY17 and activate

    'Bank data' check again, as probably You did.

    There is another possible workaround:

    - You can customize this message as a warning (W) instead of

    error (E). Use transaction OBA5.

    I hope this helps.
