2780367 - Bank Branch is Incorrect After Migration of Suppliers


You migrate the bank data of supplier ABC(ABC represents the ID of supplier) by Migration of Suppliers. In migration template, you maintain Bank ZZ(ZZ represents the ID of Bank)'s National Bank Code 1234567(1234567 represents the number of National Bank Code) and Bank Branch ID 1. However, after the successful migration, the Bank Branch under the Supplier ABC master data is not Bank Branch ID 1 of the bank ZZ.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to Bank Directory view.
  3. Select Bank ID ZZ and click on Edit.
  4. View Assigned Branches tab.
  5. You can see, Branch ID 1, Brank Code 567(567 represents the number of branch code), Branch Name AAA(AAA represents the name of the Branch ID 1 of Bank ID ZZ).
  6. Go to Payables work center.
  7. Go to Suppliers view.
  8. Search ABC.
  9. Select Supplier ID ABC and click on Edit-> Financial Data.
  10. View Bank Data subtab.
  11. You can see, Bank ZZ, National Bank Code 1234567, Bank Branch 1-BBB(BBB represents the name of the Branch ID 1 of Bank ID YY).


If manny banks with same branch IDs are maintained in the system, migration script would not be able to pick the correct one.


You can enter Brank Code 567 in the migration template, rather than Branch ID 1 (which is not unique). You can adjust the migration file, entering branch codes instead of ID's and rerun the migration. This will correct the assignment of branches.

  1. Open migration file.
  2. View Bank Data spreadsheet.
  3. In the Bank Branch ID of the supplier ABC line, enter 567.
  4. Save the migration file and re-run the migration.
