SAP Business ByDesign 2308

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Overview view.
  3. Find and open Global Settings for Payment activity.
  4. Click Prioritize Supplier Bank Accounts for Automatic Payments.
  5. Click Add Row.
  6. Enter data in all fields, including field IBAN/Account Number.
  7. Click Save and Activate.
  8. Error is thrown:

'Value exceeds maximum length 25'.


Even though there are country specific logic implemented in the system for IBAN number verification, when it comes to Prioritize Supplier Bank Accounts for Automatic Payments, under Global Settings for Payment activity, some business rules are configured in the system. Under such rules, IBAN number field is restricted to 25 characters. This is how system is designed so far.


You have to accommodate the IBAN within such limitation.

SAP Product Management Team is discussing regarding addressing such limitation in a future SAP Business ByDesign Release.
