3216251 - MT940 FR Bank Statement Upload: Inbound File Remains In Process and No Bank Statement is Created


No bank statement is created and the inbound file remains In Process while uploading a bank statement file with format MT940 FR.


SAP Business ByDesign 2205

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to the File Management --> Inbound Files view.
  3. Click New Inbound File.
  4. Enter File Type Bank Statement, Company, Bank ID and Import Format MT940 FR.
  5. Click Add --> File, browse the file and click Add again.
  6. Click Start File Upload.

As a result the inbound file remains In Process, no bank statement is created and no message (either error, warning, etc) is raised.


The parsing logic is having an issue in case the last line of the file is tag :62F: (empty/blank lines are ignored).


As a workaround, please add a line with just "-" (simple minus) at the end of the file before uploading it.

SAP Business ByDesign development team is working on enhancing the parsing logic for the next releases.
