Change payment file name

Hi All,

Is there any way I can define the file name (or at least part of the file name) of the file generated from a payment media run? We are required to have a specific piece of text in the file name for our bank.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi John,

    the naming conventions of the generated file name are fix. Nevertheless you have to download the file and here you can save the file with a new file.

    Best regards,


    PS: Can you please share, what informationyou have to encode in your file name.

      Thanks Marlene, I expected that this was the case.

      The bank in question has the following requirement for the file name of SEPA files:

      "The file name must contain the following reference ‘PAIN001’. This may appear at

      the beginning or within the filename."
