Posting MT940 without document reference


Hello all,

I am currently implementing the electronic bank statement functionallity and found a trouble that do not know how to solve.

For payments from customers in our accounts, the file received by the bank will be MT940, but it will not be related with any open item on the system. Customers will just put lump amounts on our accounts without specification to an open item. That lump amount should be posted into the credit of the customer in our accounts.

Then additionally we are developing a program which will pick the amounts on the credit side of the customer and clear the items by FIFO methodology.

So my question is, how can the system recognise from the MT940 file, to which customer the posting will be made into AR Credit wihout document reference?

Thanks in advance,
