F110 - FTP Specifications, File Specifications

Guys,

I want to use F110 but to use it, the following information of either credit union or bank is required:

file format

file type (file extension)

file layout

file standard

ftp path (ftp folder)

ftp login credentials

I have many accounts worldwide. Different countries. Contacted several banks, different departments, also technical ones. However noone understands me what I want. I am asking for those details. Noone has ever heard for any of those details. Every bank must have them. One employee even told me in his 20 years banking career he has never heard of anything like that. Tried to send them some URLs with explanations what I need. Not even this helps. Noone has those details. Noone understand what those details are for. Noone is able to provide them. I asked over 50 banks in at least 20 countries ( ! )

How else can be those details obtained? Kindly tell me. Being aware contacting them is needed. I am trying to explain, using a lot of technical AND NOT technical terms but still noone understands what I want. Explained them exact procedure how the bank message file is being created, not even this helped. Contacting them all the time. In the past month, I spent like 5 hours per day, contacting them. I also asked in the branch. Not a single employee understood me. Noone knew what I am talking about.

I think every single credit union, every single bank have those details. How can to get them? How else to explain what is need? I said EVERYTHING in every possible approach of description. Still noone understands. I even provided SAMPLE OF THE FILE. Contacting them seem to not make any progress, even technical department employees didn't understand me or didn't know what are those details.

Claudia.

    Hi Claudia,

    What is the file format that we are referring to? For example in UK, it is BACS, in US it is ACH. Like in your country, what is the generally accepted file format. Most of the banks usually accepts that general file format.

    Look at OBPM1 and SAP has provided standard PMW structures for majority file formats or country. I do not think this is not a rocket science. Bank should be able to give the file format they would accept for payments.

    If the technical team is not able to provide the answers to your questions, you should ask your cleint.

    How is the current payments are made other than cheque?

    You need to be more specific regarding,

    Bank Name

    Country

    File Format

    People would be able to advise you what needs to be done.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind Regards,

    Ravi

      Hi Claudia..

      Your problem or issue is more about connectivity to the bank FTP location. plainly you need to have a coonectivity access to be able to place the file on the bank ftp location. The banks cannot give you their ftp location. i.e if you are sending this mesages via swift connectivity you will have this information provided to you by swift. send me a private email at networktelexeu@gmail.com

      I might be able to help with some solution.

    Hi Claudia,

    the FTP file is an internal file isn't it, do u have the access. i believe they wont give u the FTP path and Login Credentials to u.

    For the

    file format

    file type (file extension)

    file layout

    file standard

    just ask them to send their file to you, and you sort it out by yourself based on the file given by them.

    Thanks

      Mohd how could I ask them for a file if noone knows anything about this? Noone has ever heard for ''Bank Message Files'' and I contacted over 20 banks. Contacted technical department, IT department, customer support, etc. Noone knows anything. I was getting answers that they have never heard about that. I think you misunderstood the meaning of the content, could you please read it again?

      FTP and FTP's login (if login is needed) is a part of F110 requirement in order to use it.

    F110 simply clears your invoice and updates payment details in REGUH, REGUP etc which you are already aware of.

    Dont use F110 like words in your discussion.

    Ask them

    1) How will you get payment information from our company?

    2) Where you want to receive the information

    3) Which format you want to receive the information.

    4) Generally there is a different team which takes care of File handling and FTP details.

    5) In Europe they have DMEE format , ACH , txt files are also various formats used in countries like US, India. you will be doing testing with bank so ask them what formats they want etc.

    Hope this helps.
