Procedure documentation Blocking a Vendor Account for Payments  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

To block a vendor master record for the payment program or for manual payments, you have to change the vendor master record. When you block the vendor account for the payment program, the payment program still processes the open items in the account during the payment run, but it does not pay any open items from the blocked accounts. You can display a list of vendors blocked from the payment program.

To block a vendor for the payment program, enter a block key in the vendor master record. These keys represent reasons for blocking. You use them to show why an account was blocked.

Block the account for the payment program as follows:

  1. Choose Master records ® Change.
  2. The system displays the initial screen for changing a vendor master record.

  3. Enter the vendor account number and the company code.
  4. Select the payment transaction data screen in the company code data area by clicking in the appropriate field and then selecting ENTER .
  5. To block this vendor for the payment program (or manual payments), enter the appropriate blocking key in the Payment block field.
  6. Choose Vendor ® Save to save the vendor master record.

The system displays the initial screen and a message that confirms that the data has been saved.
