Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to the File Management > Outbound Files view.
  3. Open File ID AAA.
  4. Click View All.
  5. Open the ISO20022 XML file.
  6. Notice that the Payment Reference Number - Norway is not mapped to the payment file.


Norway is a pre-localized country and as thus, localized payment formats are not supported.


If the aim is just about getting the Payment Reference Number - Norway into the ISO20022 file and not in a particular field, there are two options:
1) Enter the Payment Reference into the External Reference field of the supplier invoice.
This will end up being populated in the <EndToEndId> Tag of the ISO file.
2) Enter the Payment Reference into the Memo Line of the Payment. This will end up in the <RmtInf><Ustrd> Tag.

Also, if you consider creating a custom payment file structure and custom payment medium format (hence not using standard ISO20022) you can create a field with data source Scandinavian Payment Reference ID.

This data source will display the Payment Reference Type for Norway.
