1843224 - Incorrect Industry is Displaying in Some of the Accounts


In some Accounts, the Industry is showing technical name instead of actual name.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go Account Management work center.
  2. Select Accounts view.
  3. Select and Edit an Account.
  4. Go to General tab.

Here the Industry is showing technical name.



The cause for the issue is that the industry sector XYZ which was assigned to those Accounts were deleted from the Fine tuning activity General Business Data.

Therefore for the accounts which still have this industry sector value (XYZ) no proper text could be shown anymore.


If you really don't need industry sector XYZ anymore, please change the corresponding accounts accordingly (maintain a different industry) or you can also restore XYZ again via the Business Configuration finet uning activity General Business Data.
