You have a requirement to add new Payment Difference Reason Code while creating New Bank Payment Advice.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to Bank Payment Advices view.
  3. Perform the action New Bank Payment Advice.
  4. Enter the relevant information and select the option Posting Advice.
  5. Under Other Discounts/Credits select Payment Difference Reason.

You want to add a new option in the Payment Difference Reason Field, but the option is not available.


The reason you cannot add a new Payment Difference Reason Code is that these follow a standard list of codes that is taken from the standard UN ECE list:
This list is updated as and when the standard list above is extended. You cannot add a new reason code here.

As a workaround, you can choose an existing code and map it in Business Configuration to the respective ledger you want the posting to happen.
