SAP FI - Block a Vendor

You can block a vendor account for posting. You have to block a vendor master record before you can mark it for deletion. You would also block a vendor that you use only as an alternative payment recipient, so that nobody can post to it by mistake.

You can apply the following blocks −

  • Posting a block for certain company codes or for all the company codes.

  • Purchasing a block for certain purchasing organizations or for all the purchasing organizations. This is of course only if you have purchased and installed the purchasing application component.

Use the T-code FK05 or go to Accounting → Financial Accounting → Accounts Payable → Master Records → Display Changes.
