Vendor account group definition

Are the delivered vendor account groups and their number ranges considered best practice or is this field one that the users decide on the number ranges and which vendor account groups to use.

What is the SAP recommendation on vendor account groups we don't plan to use?

Thank you.

    The standard configuration provided by SAP AG in OBD3 for vendor account group creation serves as a template to copy and create your own account group with differnt number ranges and field statuses. The reason for not using standard vendor account group is mostly field status customization for various fields (e.g VAT Regs number in vendor master data) as per your legal requirment.You should create your own vendor account group by copying standard template provided by SAP and ammend them as per your need. Hope this will help you.

    • Hi,

      you can create number range for vendor account in XKN1, and assign this number range to vendor account group in OBAS.

      account group : number range = N:1, in other words, one number range can assign to difference vendor account groups. the customizing should be maintained by your own business requirements.

      Best Regards,
