Can F110 payment medium be configured to not to include special characters?

A bank does not support special characters that are included into our company name. Can the payment medium be configured to change the special characters to normal characters? From & to AND ? How tricky is this to do, and where can the payment medium be modified?

    Hi,

    You are free to control the output of your payment messages sent to the bank. You'll have to modify the program for its generation, taking the rectified company code description, substituting special characters by ones you need; not a big deal.

    • Hi,

      You should speak to your ABAP team; all messages are generated via ABAP program and, most probably, you have developed your own. You can see the program called, when you introduce the parameters for payment medium.

      P.S. Customer data can be equally modified. I'd suggest your ABAPer to create a generic function to eliminate special characters and call this function for all text data, you are putting in your payment message.

    Hi Helena

    In DMEE Config, you can specify what Special Chars are allowed. If you dont allow &, it wont be included in your file

    But if you want to convert & to AND, you will need ABAP help, as Eli said

    Hi Helena,

    you can prevent this at the time of generating DME file or payment file. If youR requirement is about country specific DME structure file then at the header level check properties of DMEE tree wherein you will find the File Data Tab into that Character Definition here you can enter those character which want to be ignore while generating this file.
