FI-BL: PMW/DME: One payment method with different file formats


Dear SAP experts,

We are implementing the PMW/DME for various countries. For each country we shall use ONE payment method (=international bank transfer) for multiple house banks (all do have different bank file structures).

The determination of the relevant house bank and the creation of the postings can be handled by SAP standard.

The challenge is that the payment method can be assigned to ONE PMW-file format only (regardless of the house bank).

Unfortunately the identification via SAP table T042Z is "Country" + "Payment Method" -> "File Format" (Field " FORMI"). It rather should be "Country" + "Payment Method" + "House Bank" -> "File Format"...

Of course it would be possible to use e. g. BTE "P-00001810" to change the payment methods during the payment run/proposal but that wouldn't meet the requirement of using ONE payment method only.

However it is not possible to store the relevant format in the various report variants ("TFPM042F-FORMI/FORME") as the format has to be identical to the format stored in "T042Z- FORMI".

It seems like there is no appropriate BTE or exit available.

Do you have any ideas on how to use one payment method with multiple house bank file formats?

Thank you
