SAP BP: Data Line and Telebox fields
I'm on NW 702 SAPKB70211, IS-UT 605 SAPK-60508INISUT, and I'm trying to remove/hide the following fields on Business Partner Address screen for partner types Organization and Group:- Data Line and Telebox (EXTENSION1 & EXTENSION2 from ADDR1_DATA structure; Dynpro
And for the life of mine, I can't actually find those fields in any BDT Field Group for Application Object BUPA, and I don't see them offered for configuration in any of the BP Field Attribute configuration transactions - neither the ones available in SPRO, nor BUSJ, nor BUSO... If I double-check TBZ3R using SE16, EXTENSION1 & 2 fields are not assigned to any BUPA field group...
In my desperation I even tried to include the fields in BUPA Group 89 myself... didn't help, I still can't see them in the Field configuration transactions.
If you are using BP in your ERP system, could you do me a favour and check using SE16 what do you have in TBZ3R for FLDNM = EXTENSION* please?
I have searched OSS for EXTENSION1 and implemented all three recent notes related to the fields:
Excuse me for wenting my frustration this way, but... dear SAP, you appear to not really be in control of this particular monstrocity you created anymore, if simple sounding tasks like configuring something on a dynpro can cause a mini-avalanche of notes numbering more than there are fields to configure... Either the know-how is not in the house anymore, or the right guys are busy with HANA and the guys getting assigned to simple sounding tasks don't really know what the hell they are doing and whom to ask what to do! And there is too little quality control... and no amount of "HANA communication" can change any of that.

Ok, there is OSS Note 2074554 - SAP BP: EXTENSION1 and EXTENSION2 fields are not customizable available now, and after rolling back my own enhancements and customizing, doing the manual pre-implementation steps, implementing correction and switching off the fields in customizing, the things are still ok.
I wish SAP could find a way to autmatically deliver all the new BP fields in a preconfigured state "Invisible". That way, the notes like 1749827 - Few address fields editable even in the display mode would never be possible, I believe. But that's something beyond the scope of corrections for this particular problem...
