1808826 - Is it Possible to Maintain Two Academic Title for a Business Partner?

Symptom

You have maintained the below configuration for Business Partner Name Format, expecting that to have two academic titles: one in front of the name and one after the name.

1. Academic title in front of the name
2. First Name
3. Middle Name
4. Last Name
5. Additional Last Name
6. Academic title after the name

But the Academic Title is displaying only in front of the name.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Open the Activity List from the available project.
  3. Go to Fine Tune chevron.
  4. Search and open the activity General Business Data.
  5. Select Name Formats link.
  6. Maintain the Name Format sequence as above.
  7. Save the changes.
  8. Now, while creating or edit a Business Partner, the Academic Title field  is visible only in front of the name.

Resolution

As per the settings in the Fine Tuning activity General Business Data, You are trying to maintain two academic titles: one in front of the name and one after the name. This is currently not possible in our solution because there is only one academic title! This is why you did not find the second field in the screen.

Regarding the fine-tuning screen Name Formats

You has choose the following order:

1. Academic title in front of the name
2. First Name
3. Middle Name
4. Last Name
5. Additional Last Name
6. Academic title after the name

The position of the title depends on the title itself.

For Example:

Title: "MBA" Formatting is "Sandra Mohr MBA"

Title: "Dr." Formatting is "Dr. Sandra Mohr"

This means the entry on position 1. in the customizing screen determines the position of those titles which are normally written in front of the name like "Dr." and the entry on position 6. in the customizing screen determines the position of those titles which are normally written after the name like "MBA"
