Hello Gurus,

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between Payment Medium Workbench and Classic Payment Medium (RFFO*) Program in F110?

My question is -

If there is a requirement to customize Classic Payment Medium , why there is a separate Payment method - PMW ....are there any disadvantages in using this Method.........

Waiting for your reply. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

In the Classic Payment Medium you cannot make changes as per business requirements in the payment medium file generated during F110. But in PMW it has the flexibility to define your own payment file format.

Advantages of PMW.

The ability to adapt formats delivered to be customer or bank-specific easily and without modification, including separate selection parameters on the payment medium program.

Simple tools for creating new formats (programming knowledge is not a requirement for using the DME Engine).

Customizing for the layout of the note to payee

Standard creation of payment advice notes with the new program RFFOAVIS_FPAYM.

Improved performance, especially when you have large payment runs

Regards

SM

Thank you for the inputs....I got to know the advantages and purpose of PMW....but my question is -

Currently, we have customized the classic payment medium and for all customized classic payment method is being used and my doubt is -

bold Instead of customizing RFFO*, why should not we use PMW (Payment medium workbenc). Are theere any disadvantages in using PMW!!

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Hi,

There is no disadvantage by using PMW.

I repeat it is a tool for which we can create the file format as per our requirements.

You will create the file format in t.code DMEE.

You can create different format files for each payment method with a variant defined.

The user can decide on the layout of the note to payee, and select differing notes to payee according to origin (vendors, customers, personnel, travel expenses, Treasury, online payments.

There is no technical knowledge required to use this tool.

Please refer below documentation for more.

Hi,

About PMW.

"The payment medium workbench was created to replace the classic payment medium programs. The main benefits of using the PMW are as follows;

- It separates format specific parts from the more complex general part

- You can easily create new formats with customising and mapping functions or mapping with the DME engine"

Also please read the IMG documentation and review the below note which has basic information how to use it, which customizing set up is necessary etc.

Hope this helps
