    Did you maintain the selection parameter in the section Algorithm in FF.5?

    BELNR number interval: 1 - 9999999999

    XBLNR number interval: 1 -      ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    If you do not maintain these interval, algorithm 1 does ignore these number therefore only checks the amount.

    • Hi

      So your bank is sending the account document information in tag 61 - sub-field 7 (16 digits), which concatenate the account document number + Company code + FY.

      Would you please check first if your system has OSS note 396776 applied, which could easily be verified by checking FEBRE table to see if the above information is added with <REF> </REF>?

      If you have the subfield 7 information in FEBRe, you can use the search string functionality to retrieve only the first 10 digits number You can implement a search string for <REF>################</REF> to map the first 10 # and ensure that the target field is note to payee.

      Would you please try this?

      Hope that this helps.
