Problem with SEPA DMEE-Tree Pain.008.001.02

Dear all,

We are currently struggling with the DMEE format-tree pain.008.001.02. I'e managed to solve quite some problems, but this one just reoccurs and reoccurs:


Ist always empty no matter what I do.

The XML-Checker says:

Recommendation The recommended element "<id>" is missing. (CGI Guideline)

The Bank (Spain) say, they need the OrgId and the Id.

From the structure I find in the internet I believe this node has to be:






InitgPty, Id, OrgId and Othr are set to no mapping. And the last entry (Id) ist set to structure field with source = FPAYHX and Field name = SND_DEBTOR_ID.

Can somebody please help me to solve this problem? I cannot see what's wrong.

Any help or hint is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance,


Problem solved: Hello everybody, Solution: The node is: InitgPty ->Id -->OrgId --->Othr ---->Id But that really doesn't matter how the node is called. If it is more then one level. Pls. only add the next level, then save and activate the tree. Add the next level, save and activate. And so on. Even if the node do not have a mapping to them. I suggest proceeding this way. It solved my problem with emtpy nodes. Sometimes it is as easy as this (took me a long time to figure that out!). Hope this helps others, too. Jessica

    Hi Jessica,

    I found this very helpful as I'm having the same issue. But was wondering if you can expand a bit
    more on maintaining the levels. I think I'm on the right path but just need clarification
    to make sure that’s the case.

    Thanks in advance,
