How to generate a payment medium per vendor for a single payment run?

I'm currently faced with a somewhat strange requirement. My customer's bank takes a single payment medium and splits it into multiple lines (one for each vendor) in their bank account, which makes automatic clearing in the electronic bank statement impossible when trying to clear against the single payment medium.

Example: One payment run pays 10 different vendors, SAP generates in standard a single payment medium but the bank separates these into 10 different lines on the bank statement when it should only be one.

Is there any way to modify a DME-Tree so that way I can generate a payment medium for each unique vendor (or vendor's bank account) within the payment run?

    There is a setting in FBZP where you can generate a single payment for all the vendors while configuring the payment method.

    Hi There,

    It is very usual that customer comes with these kind of payments. In SAP Payment Engine you have to do the following.

    1. Define an SLA where you have an option to add as many customer segment accounts as possible (/PE1/SLA)

    2. Define a suspense account

    3. Take the payment from DMEE as it was received and process the Customer payment to the Suspense account

    4. Now I guess you know where I am coming from. Write a Small program in PE to run in the Intraday or EOD according to the customer needs, where the program will read the payments processed in Step3 and create the contra posting (ORP to Suspense account and RCPs to the multiple vendors - the RCPs are split based on the File Handler data from DMEE and SLA defined)

    Easy. Peace.

    Thanks,

    Yeah BTW, you also have an option to split the Payments into multiple recipients from DMEE, you can do that in the DMEE Inbound Converter.

    If you go the the DMEE Inbound Converter class, the framework itself is defined to split the payments in the MODIFY_DATA method.
