3146113 - Modify Outbound File Resulting from Standard Payment File Structure


You are using the standard delivered payment file structures to generate outbound files, however your bank has requested some modifications to the file structure to comply with their bank-specific software. Rather than manually editing the file, you would like to copy the standard payment file structure and make manual adjustment via payment flexibility tool, however there is no option to copy the standard structures.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view.
  3. Open the activity list.
  4. Open activity Outgoing Bank Transfers.
  5. Click Edit payment file structures.

You see that there is no option to create a copy of the existing structures.


This is the expected system behavior. Via Edit Payment File Structures, you are able to create and copy only your own structures.


As an alternate solution, you can evaluate the feasibility of editing the resulting outbound file (generated with standard payment structure) via a custom add/PDI.

From the Studio, it is possible to update the file content of the generated file through the following path:  CompanyPaymentFileRegister (BO) --> OutgoingFile (Node) --> OutgoingFileAttachmentFolder (Node) --> Document (Node) --> FileContent (node) --> BinaryObject
