AP - DME File creation Process

We are in the new SAP Implementation. For this we have configured the F110 Automatic Payment Program.

We have now 3 Invoices ready for payment - one for Wire, Check & ACH

We want to create the DME files for ACH and Wire & Print the Check.

Would some one explain me the steps involved please?

Thanks a lot.

    In brief these are the steps. However, you will find these in themselves are just guiding points.

    1. In the payment method for country configuration, you maintain the Payment medium for each payment method. For DME, you would have to use Payment medium workbench and specify the Format and the Format supplement. For ACH in US, the Format would be ACH and supplement would be CCD or CTX, etc.

    2. Before assigning the payment medium you will have to maintain one specific for a DME file in the img node: Financial Accounting>Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable>Business Transactions>Outgoing Payments>Automatic Outgoing Payments>Payment Media>Make Settings for Payment Medium Formats from Payment Medium Workbench-->Create Payment Medium Formats

    3. Once you maintain the format key in step 2, you need to create the structure of the DME. You do that in transaction code DMEE. The structure would depend on how your banking institution wants it. Please create the structure for Tree type: PAYM - Data Medium Exchange for Payment Program

    4. The assignment of the structure in 3 above with the payment medium in 2 above is done by a check box in step 2 called: Mapping using DME engine.

    5. After this you need to maintain variant for program SAPFPAYM. Here you give the path where the DME file should be saved.

    6. You need to figure out the way you would send the file to the bank.

    I am sure you will have lot more questions.
