Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management Work Center.
  2. Click on New Bank Payment Advice under Common Tasks View.
  3. Select a Company.
  4. Choose Advice Type: Bank Debit Advice.
  5. Tick the box for Posting Advice.
  6. Now select a Payment Method.

Result: The message No items found appears.


It is due to the scoping question regarding direct debit not being scoped. The system is therefore not able to fetch the Payment Method as Direct Debit in case of Bank Debit advice.
