MT940 format on Statement Number/Sequence Number

Hi Expert,

I have the following EBS source file, which has 2 sequence numbers:

As you can read that the section of :28C is the section of Statement Number/Sequence Number. According to MT940 standard, as follows:

-


This field contains the sequential number of the statement, optionally followed by the sequence number of the message within that statement when more than one message is sent for one statement. The statement number should be reset to 1 on 1 January of each year.

The sequence number always starts with 001. When several messages are sent to convey information about a single statement, the first message must contain '/001' in Sequence Number.

One SWIFT message may contain up to 2000 characters.

-


My source file's Statement Number/Sequence Number is correct, which caontains 1 statment (00006) and 2 sequence number which are: 00001 and 00002. But during EBS upload using FF_5, system only managed upload first portion of the source file, and when come to second portion, 00006/00002, it always says ERROR: EBS (00006) already exist.

But, based on MT940 standard, it should be OK.

Therefore, does anyone have any idea why SAP FF_5 cannot handle the EBS source file upload? Any further settings / configuration in order to hanlde Statement Number/Sequence Number?

Thanks in advance

      Hi Prem Kumar,

      If you read my post carefully, you will find that I attached MT940 standard in my first post. And according to the standard, the section of :28C: is statement number/sequence number ...

      -


      ...

      ...

      The sequence number always starts with 001. When several messages are sent to convey information about a single statement, the first message must contain '/001' in Sequence Number.

      -


      Therefore, as per the MT940 standard, my statement number 00006/00001 and 00006/00002 should be accepted by FF_5.

      Please read though my problem (first post and second post).

      Thanks and regards,

      sbmel

      Hi Keng Hua,

      Thanks for your suggestion, but upload failed also with the following error:

      ERROR: Termination in statement no. 00006 of acct .... ; closing record 62F missing

      I read that your suggestion of M is 62M=Intermediate closing balance; but too bad, it seems not working.

      Thanks and regards,

      sbmel

    Hello,

    I have encountered the same issue on MT940 with statement number/sequence number in field 28C.

    Our bank sends us MT940 into 17 separate files with sequence number for the same statement number (i.e. 13040/0001, 13040/0002..... and so on) while following the rule as below

    • intermediate closing balance must have code :62M:
    • and intermediate opening balance must have code :60M:

    • finalclosing balance must have code :62F:
    • and initial opening balance must have code :60F:

    However, the upload of first file in FF_5 terminated with error FV151 Termination in statement no.acct .... ; closing record 62F missing and subsequent files are with FV150 missing beginning record 60F.

    Would you please share your expertise on how you managed to make FF_5 accept these MT940 files with sequence number?

    Thanks in advance for your help on this.

    Regards

    Taro

      Hi Henri,

      Thanks for your answer I have just seen it right now. I did resolve the issue...It was due to the file name. When the name is too long it falls into error... It took me a lot of time to discover that.

      Thanks.

      Regards,

      Kaci.
