3223727 - Unable to change the company code for the user.


  • Company code assignment cannot be changed using "Import employee" application.
  • Empoyee XXXX:CompanyCode cannot be changed.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open "Import employee" application.
  2. Upload .csv file by changing the company code.
  3. Execute the file.


Company code re-assignment is not supported.


Company code change is not supported by the simpler approach of Import Employee App (error Employee: XXXX - CompanyCode cannot be changed). In case a company code change is required in this scenario one alternative would be to delete the employee and recreate it again in correct company code (for more details see KBA 2702011), another alternative could be moving to use the Public API or SF replication which both cover this possibility.
