Automatic Payment program using DME


Our client would like to generate ACH ,WIRE and Checks and transfer the data to Bank, so that bank will take care of payments to Vendors. As of now client is using Classical payment methods and we are configuring PMW for generating the files required for Bank

In OBPM Tr code I see the relevant Payment medium formats like ACH , CHECK etc but I dont see them in DME Tree type PAYR, even though I have activated the Check box Mapping using DME engine ( I read in the forums by activating this check box, automatically we see the Format tree in PAYR ) .

Is there a away to bring this ACH, CHECK formats into PAYR Tree type or Copy the existing Format trees ( SAP defaulted) in Payer table and create your own structure.

If ACH, CHECK formats are readily available we can copy and add or delete few fields as per bank requirements instead of developing from scratch.

Appreciate your inputs on this

    Standard ACH (domestic payment USA) is implemented using function modules, not Data Medium Exchange Engine (t-code DMEE). Thus you will not find it in DMEE unless you create your own from scratch. Before doing so I’d be interested to know a requirement from a US bank to which a standard ACH is unable to respond. We’ve recently implemented it with 2 different US banks and standard SAP format (with supplements CCD and PPD) worked well for both banks.

    In FBZP in your payment method/US you need to choose Use payment medium workbench radio button and assign ACH with format supplement if needed.

    • Hi,

      Vendors need some extra information in our ACH payment file.

      So we need to activate the addendum record in the XML file that is sent to the bank(Chase).

      The format used is ACH.

      I do not see ACH tree in DMEE.

      I saw in the forums that the standard ACH format will not be available in DMEE.

      Could you please direct me to how this can be resolved?.

      Your guidance will be very helpful.

      Thanks and Regards,

    The DMEE tree for such payments is of type PAYM. You can copy the SAP std. DMEE like SEPA_CT and make modifications as informed by bank(this may need multiple iterative unit testing). Note that both PMW and DMEE name should be same.

    Hi Madhavi,

    Based on your SAP instance have you considered using the format / DME tree CGI_XML_CT or SEPA_CT ? This should work for the checks WIREs & ACH payments. The DME tree may need few adjustments based on the bank needs.
