We have banks in some countries which have issues processing special characters in our XML payment files from SAP. The feedback from those banks is that what is in the file needs to match the legal entity name which is problematic particularly with the & special character being prevalent in our legal entity names.

In our legacy environment we substitute with escape characters on the bank payment XML files so banks interpret the values appropriately like:



How can we do these same substitutions in the Payment Media format config? The only option seems to be to exclude the special characters completely which doesn't allow us to maintain the legal entity name accurately.
