Creation of EDI 820 for outgoing payments in SAP


Hi Experts,

We have a requirement where in we need to create an outgoing payment file in EDI820 with in SAP.

We basically need to create specifications in EDI820 format for the bank to print checks and make wires and EFT payments.

That EDI820 file will be created at the time of Automatic Payment Run(F110).

Right now our client is sending a flat file to external service provider and they are creating EDI820 files and sending to the banks. Going forward the services of this service provider will be decommissioned and an EDI820 file is to be generated in SAP and sent to the bank via SWIFT Net.

Bank has provided us a sample file and file format for EDI820. This file format contains ST, BPR, RMR, REF etc records. There records have different codes and qualifiers.

As far as we have analyzed, there are no standard SAP programs that can generate flat file in the EDI 820 format. Therefore we are heading towards developing a Z program for creating an EDI820 format.

We are facing problem in mapping this file with SAP fields. We need to know how exactly we can map this file in SAP so as to create a program to generate EDI820. If anybody has had a similar requirement (for creating outbound EDI820 in SAP) and can provide us some lead, it will be greatly helpful for us.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Best regards,
