Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the app Maintain Business Partner
  2. Find and open the Business Partner ID
  3. Maintain the data of Business Partner
  4. Select Save
  5. System throws the error


In the Address Overview tab of the Business Partner, there are additional addresses for which there is no data maintained for the City field.


For all the addresses that exist in the Business Partner, the data in the City field needs to be maintained. Therefore, double-click each of the addresses in both the Address tab and the Address Overview tab to ensure each Address is maintained with City data.

In the Maintain Business Partner app, the City field will be made as non-mandatory with the 2302CE release which is tentatively scheduled in February 2023.
