Bank master data maintainance
As a part or vendor bank data maintenance, we are proposing to do the following changes in configuration:
Change the bank key format definition u2013 Standard SAP configuration has a specific format setting of bank key for a number of countries e.g. for Italy, the bank key should be numeric and 10 characters. We propose to change this to allow entry of alphanumeric characters of any length.
Change in bank Number configuration u2013 For a number of countries, system is configured to take the bank key as bank number and the bank number filed is not modifiable. We propos to change this to enter a user define bank number
Does anyone see any risk due to these changes?
Additionally, we are proposing to load a large number of bank records u2013 approx 20000 coming from a data file from standard external source.
Our vendor base is about 2000 and we may not be using all bank data ever. However, if we load this data, we have a complete reliable reference and there will be minimal data maintenance of this data. Is there any risk in having such a large bank master data table?
