2879389 - Error "Please do not enter bank data for payment method XX" (RP568) for Bank Transfer payment method


When creating or updating some employee data using the Import Employee App (or the API WORKFORCEPERSONMASTERDATAREPLI or the Integration with SF), the following error appears in the Monitor Employee Imports App:

Please do not enter bank data for payment method XX ( Message no. RP568 )

Pernr XXXXXXXX: Infotype 0009, subtype 2 with error ( Message no. ECPAO_IN_PROCESSING022 )

The "payment method XX" corresponds to a "Bank Transfer", payment method = "T".


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




The configuration of the bank details is wrong. For the Payment Method for a Bank Transfer, the Account Number is required always. For non SEPA, the minimum configuration is “Allowed for personnel payments” and “Account Number required”.


  1. Go to the tile Manage Your Solution
  2. Go to Configure Your Solution
  3. Go to the Application Area: "Finance", Sub Application Area: "Accounts Payable"
  4. In the Configuration Steps, select, for example, the Step name: "Set Up Payment Methods per Country for Payment Transactions" (SSCUI 101972) and click on Configure
  5. Double click on the affected Payment Method for that country and Mark the following flags: (The bank transfer has to be "Allowed for personnel payments" and "Account Number Required")



  1. Save the changes

If any configuration is changed, please test it before deploying the change in PROD system.
