read check number from Field86 problem in MT940

Hi all.

My MT940 EBS have the check number in field 86, and i think my problem is FF.5 is trying to read it from field 61 (NCHK)

Here is an example of my EBS:


:86:002?00COBRO CHEQUE NUMERO?20/EI/4684

CIP021014TU8 .

my check number is 4684

but in FEBEP I get NONREF (From NCHKNONREF) in the field CHECT and ZUONR

How can I configure the ff.5 to read the correct information?

    Hello Rene,

    The standard algorithm which is being used will read line 61 in this case, so if you want to use line 86 for reading the check number then you need to go for custom interpretation algorithm. Also if you are going for user exit make sure to provide the exact details for the developer with respect to the check number length for reading from the note to payee line.

    Hope this clarifies.

      Hi Srikant, I tray with algorithm 13, and check number still is NONREF, and ZUONR is empty.

      If I want to use the ustom Intepreation alogirthm where or how can I implement (I am the ABAP Developer) or where can I see an example.

    Hi, Rene, have you asked the bank to populate the field you want (in this case where it comes NONREF) with the check number?

    I had this problem in a company and the bank changed the information for us.

    If this is not an option, you can also try using search strings for EBS to solve your problem.

    Best Regards!
