Lockox - Very urgent

We are getting a BAI2 file from the bank and in record type 4 we are having the deduction amounts and for few invoices the bank is also including the negative “-“sign.

My question is what does the “-“sign represents and also how to deal with this scenario. As SAP BAI2 format is unsigned, how to deal with this situation?

I am in a very urgent situation.

I would be really thankful if someone could help me.

Points will be rewarded.

    In the BAI2 format there is space to incorporate deductions. In the file there should not be any "-" negative sign. Based on the location, system automatically reads it as a deduction.

      Hi Murali!

      In th file there are deductions specified in the spaces alloted for them. but in addition to that for some records I am also having these " -" negative signs. In a pwer point I have gone through it was said if there are deuctions on creditmemos from the customer the bank will flag these as negative amounts and thus puts the " -" negative sign. I have sent you an email with the sample file and details ... please have a look .. I can also send you the power point I am talking about,

      Thanks a lot
