Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Go to Outbound Files.
  3. Select the affcted Outbound file.
  4. Edit the file.
  5. Click on View All.
  6. From the Attachments tab, download the XML file and you observe that the employee address information is not available.


There are two possible reasons:

  1. You have not maintained the address information for this employee in his personal profile.
  2. If you have maintained the above address information but still cannot see it in the XML file, it may due to the Business Partner also has an employee role. The Business Partner address is maintained as the "Main" Address. Therefore all the changes on employee level will be ignored. The system is always selecting the Main address which is maintained on Business Partner level.


You need to check the employee address in its Personnel Profile. Maintain the relevant address information under Personal Data tab, Private Contact Data sub-tab.

In the second scenario, if the Business Partner also has an employee role, please change the address on the Business Partner level as well to match the Employee and recreate the payment file.
