In vendor master you will enter vendor bank details with bank key and vendor bank number. Set up bank key in FI01. You can set up house banks for payment (customer bank account) in FI12. Check with your FI consultant.

Bank Key:

In this field, you specify the bank key under which bank data from the respective country is stored.

When you define the country key, you also specify the country-specific definition of the bank key.

Normally, you manage banks using their bank number. The bank number in the control data for the bank is then displayed twice, that is, as the bank key too.

In certain countries, the bank account number takes on this function; then there are no bank numbers and the bank data is managed using the account number.

For data medium exchange, you may find it useful to be able to enter foreign business partners without a bank number, even if there are bank numbers in the country in question. In this case, the bank key can be assigned internally.

To manage bank data using another key, for example, the SWIFT code, external number assignment can also be used.

Bank account number

This field contains the number under which the account is managed at the bank.

Account Holder Name

Here you can enter another name that the payment program can use if the name of the account holder is not the same as the name of the customer or vendor.
