With the 2005 upgrade, a change was made: The Account Holder name should be deleted and only used if it varies from the Supplier's Name in the Bank Details( Legal entity to whom the account is assigned).


You need to remove the Account Holder data: You can access the Supplier Master Data from the Payment Monitor where you can see the problematic Payment (Refer to Reproducing the Issue to navigate to this part).

  1. Next to the concerned Payment, click on the Field Business Partner Name.
  2. Click on View all and then Navigate to the Financial Data tab.

  4. Remove the data and Save.
