3389522 - When importing bank statement items using general template, profit center is not identified correctly.


When importing bank statement line items using generate template, profit center is not identified correctly. The error message “Profit Center &&&& does not exist for Item 2. Select a valid profit center.” is raised.

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Bank Statements app.
  2. Create the bank statement.
  3. Provide the company code, house bank details, opening balance and closing balance.
  4. Click on Generate Template.
  5. Add bank statement line items to the template.
  6. Import the template.


If the profit center is all numeric, then an alpha conversion is required to add leading zeroes so it could be identified in the backend. For Profit center that is alphanumeric, the issue does not occur. 

This is gap in the standard system. The issue will be resolved in the upcoming release.


Work around:

  • Add leading zeroes up to 10 digits to profit center in the template(eg: 0000123456).


  • Manually select the profit center from the value help.
