Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open a Business Partner with Grouping CPD.
  2. Click on Edit.
  3. Change the account group.
  4. Click on save.
  5. The system raises the error.


The CPD Customer Account group is a "One-Time" account group, so it is not possible to make changes to customer account group. This is hardcoded into the system.


  1. Archive and then delete the CPD Customer Business Partner. 
  2. Re-create the Customer Business Partner in the desired new account group.
