    Hi Venkata,

    I am not sure what scenario you are using for AR using DMEE. I will share my experience of what I did for SEPA DD, which is single european payment area direct debit (ar receipt) format for directly collecting money on AR. In this method, we use DMEE as a means of sending file to our bank (using F110), which then processes and collects from our customers. By using F110, we simultaneously clear our AR in the system as well. Below are the details:

    Direct Debit File Layout:

    The items [1..n] of this Payment Information (batch) are called Direct Debit Transactions; they are the payments (REGUH entries) in an SAP system. Each of them has as header data such as the paying party (Debtor, with Bank SWIFT code and IBAN), an End-to-End ID which the bank will forward to the Debtor, and the amount. In addition, there is remittance information, so that the Debtor can reconcile the direct debit with the open items in his system. In SAP Financials, the remittance information for the direct debit is drawn from the REGUP entries (cleared invoices) that belong to one REGUH entry (payment).

    Config Settings:

    OBPM1 --> Pick your payment method (for eg. ACH, SEPA_DD etc.), then select format output (SAPScript, XML, etc). Make sure to checkmark "Mapping Using DME engine", then select DME Engine and assign your DME file layout.

    OBPM4 --> Maintain your selection variant (most of these are standard delivered). Next assign it to your company code, house bank combo.

    FBZP --> Here maintain payment methods per country. Make sure of these settings: 1) Payment Method for incoming payments; 2) Payment method classification (Bank transf); 3) Required master data specifications (checkmark Banks Details, Account number required). For international inbound payments IBAN and SWIFT Code may also be required; 3) Payment Medium (Use payment medium workbench radio button checked), and assign your format here.

    Now enter AR invoices, use F110 for customers, assign your variant in RFFO****, and do proposal (make sure to checkmark of generate DME output in the dialog box). Go to menu--> DME administration........this should show you the file output.

    Please relay back with any comments or questions. There are also useful documents for a specific DME format setting. I am not sure what your payment method is, for eg. ACH, Wire etc. Do some online research on your specific topic as well.

      Yes, it is possible to use DME for inbound receipts. You use F110 the same way as AP, only this time make sure to use your direct debit payment method in the parameter tab.

      The first question is: As per your business requirement, what payment method are you expected to use? Usually you start out with that. For example, my project was to configure SEPA_CT and SEPA_DD. Another one was to setup ACH and Wires for USA. You need to know what AR payment method are you expected to work on?

      Payment method and DME format:

      Once you know your payment method, you will have to use OBPM1, OBPM3, OBPM4, and also possibly OBPM2 (if you want to maintain note to payee). These steps especially OBPM4 is very critical, as this will make you RFFO*** variant option popup in F110.

      FBZP: You will also need to setup your payment method in both country and company code and make your PMW/DME assignments there.

      If you are still not clear, please send me an in-mail
