Open the View - J_1BBRANCV directly using tcode SM30 or follow the below shown IMG path to create
or maintain business place.

Create / Change / Display the business place as shown below, and in detailed view screen new field
(BRANCH_LONG) is added with length 5.
In the above screen (J_1BBRANCV) the field BRANCH_LONG will be only active for Thailand specific
Company Code.

During invoice posting F4 help will display the existing 4 character business place but during VAT
reporting, corresponding 5 character business place will be picked and reported.

In case of J_1BBRANCV-BRANCH_LONG (newly added field with length 5) is initial ( empty ) the
respective reports should reflect J_1BBRANCV-BRANCH values (i.e. the values maintained in the
document) else J_1BBRANCV-BRANCH_LONG value should be displayed.

In case of only 5 characters Business Place, field J_1BBRANCV-BRANCH_LONG (newly added field with
length 5) should be used; in case of 4 character Business Place, field J_1BBRANCV-BRANCH should be
used. No need to maintain BRANCH_LONG for 4 characters Business Place.
In RFUMSV00 report layout configuration, the newly added field Business place (USER_FIELD_C) should
be added to display the business place with length 5.

Consider the below example, where the 4 digit business place is mapped to a new business place with
length 5 and the same is reported below in report RFUMSV00 in the newly added field (Business place).
