Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to the File Management view.
  3. Select the Outbound File sub view.
  4. Show All Outbound Files and search for the ID: XXX (XXX stands for the ID of the file).
  5. Download the file.

The file format is ISO20022 payment format. The file type is Pain.001.001.03

The file is missing the field 'NbOfTxs' on 'PmtInf' level.


In the current release, for ISO20022, SAP has only offered the generic country-independent implementation.

In this generic country-independent implementation, for the ISO20022 format, file type: pain.001.001.03, the fields <NbOfTxs>, as well as fields <CtrlSum> and <PmtTpInf> on <PmtInf> level are not mandatory and have not been implemented by SAP.


This is the normal system behavior.

For ISO20022 format, file type: pain.001.001.03, the fields: <NbOfTxs>, <CtrlSum> and <PmtTpInf> have only been offered on GroupHeader <GrpHdr> level.
