Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management Work Center.
  2. Select Outbound Files.
  3. Search for all and ID XXX(XXX represents the ID of the outbound file).
  4. Download the file and open it.

Result: You will notice that the expiration date comes as "00000000".


The Data Source "Expiration Date of Payment File" in Business ByDesign is a field that was intended for usage in UK specific custom files, for BACS payments. This Data source will therefore only work when a custom BACS structure is created and assigned to the standard BACS payment format.


A potential alternative would be to use a different Data Source: "Expected Payment Value Date at Payer/Payee".
