Bank master data is archived,
deleted, and reloaded using the FI_BANKS archiving object.
FI_BANKS consists of a single segment: BNKA for the bank master
Note the following when archiving
bank master data:
Bank master data is only archived if it is no longer used
(referred to) within Financial Accounting (FI). Bank master data
may be used for example when you enter the bank country and bank
key of the appropriate bank in a customer or vendor master record.
Similarly, bank details may be entered in documents posted to
one-time accounts. You define your house banks by defining the bank
country and bank key per company code and bank ID.
You can set a deletion flag in the bank master record. When
archiving bank data, you can then select whether to delete banks no
longer used in the system or keep the deletion flag set in the bank
The bank master data that is archived can be further controlled
by entering a minimum number of days in the system. This minimum
number must be greater than the number of days that have elapsed
between the date the bank master data was created and the date of
the archiving run).
The archiving program can only check whether a bank is referred
to for the Financial Accounting (FI) application component. If you
refer to bank master data in Human Resources, you must set a delete
indicator in that set of master data, and when archiving, you must
then specify that only bank master data with a delete indicator
should be deleted.

master data, refer to the FI - General Ledger Accounting
