Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to the Inbound Files view.
  3. Click New -> Inbound File.
  4. Enter data required data, such as Company and Bank ID (Import Format ISO20022 Bank Statement will de derived).
  5. Upload respective XML file.
  6. Click Start File Upload.
  7. As a result, notice that system has created one bank statement from the file, while there was two bank statements contained in the XML file.

For example, in the respective XML file there is two occurrences of line <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?.



Combining various files into one will create an issue in SAP Business ByDesign. Every bank statement has to be uploaded separately.

When the bank complete bank statement is copied or combined with another one, including all document elements this will create an invalid XML document.


Each file should be uploaded separately. If it is the bank providing the file in this format then it might be advisable to ask if the bank can separate the bank statements (might even be a setting if it is a self-service portal).
