Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to the Outbound Files view.
  3. Show All Outbound Files.
  4. Select the respective file ID.
  5. Press View All.
  6. Go to the Attachment tab.
  7. Download the file.

The Customer ID at Supplier field is missing in the file.


The new payment file format is assigned to the  SAP delivered Payment Medium Format 36 - UK BACS Domestic Payment. Due to this standard Payment Medium Format's special coding some of the more generic code, such as the Customer ID at Supplier field, might get skipped, as this information is not usually required for this particular payment medium format.


Create a new customized Payment Medium Format and assign this new format to the customized Payment File Format. This way the Customer ID at Supplier field will be correctly derived in the generated Payment Files.
