P0030A Bank Account Number-Customer (CBNK) size


hi all,

I've a problem in P0030A. CBNK (bank account number - customer) field size is 20.
So I can't enter a bank account number more than length 20, there is no IBAN info.
I don't also want to change CBNK size .

E1. 9.1
What do you recomend to solve that issue?
Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

You say there is no IBAN info so you can use that field which i think is greater then CBNK. Never heard of account# going bugger then 20. Are you sure that you haven't merged both routing and acoount #?.



Hi Chan,

We are using IBAN info for domestic banks account and some foreign banks. Some bank accounts have no IBAN info so we need CBNK. Also you're right I have never see that CBNK is bigger than 20 length before. But there is a China's bank that bank account info greater than 20 (actually:22). We're using that CBNK info many reports and forms. I think I will create a new additaional table to store that number and change all reports and forms. I wonder is there any other method for solution?

We have come across a single instance of a bank account being greater than 20 characters. That is with one of our off-shore campuses. They do not use the transit number (TNST) (our main campus does), so we put the overflow characters in that field. The only things I had to do were:

1) Modify a custom validation for TNST to exclude the off-shore campus users
2) Modify the custom EFT file creation for the off-shore campus
