Purpose of Payment Codes in DME file

0 Kudos

Dear Experts,

Can some one review my business requirement and validate proposed solutioin.

I would like to know if there is any other standard solution to suffice this requirement.

Business Requirement:

Currently in my client, there is custom DME File format.

Recently for country UAE, the local banks are requesting for purpose codes to be input in DME file to be processed by banks, otherwise banks do not process payments.

Below are the some of the purpose codes provided by banks, just for reference.

ACM Agency Commission

AES Advance payment against EOS

ALW Allowances

ATS Air transport

BON Bonus

CCP Corporate Card Payment

CHC Charitable Contributions

CIN Commercial Investments

COM Commission

Propsed Solution:

1. Activate the Payment Method Supplement in FBZP - All company codes step

2. Create the list of Purpose codes as Payment Method Supplements 2 digit code (example:

01 - CCP Corporate Card Payment

02 - COM Commission) and so on

3. Map the vendor master data with required 2 digit Purpose code/Payment Method Supplements

4. While posting invoice, the purpose code can be changed by user if required

5. Add the logic in DME format to bring purpose codes using atoms

(creating atoms and putting conditions to populate constant 3 digits purpose code in dme file)

(if in document purpose code found as 01, in dme file CCP will be populated)

Thanks and Regards,

We are looking at a solution for purpose codes for Abu Dhabi as well. SAP suggested using the Payment Ref field but we use that field for the actual purpose it is intended for.

I'm in the process of creating a custom field so user can enter purpose code when entering the vendor invoice. I am curious to know how this solution is working for you and if it is worth going back to the drawing board and implementing your solution.


Dear Jill,

The solution which i mentioned working good, users have accepted this one.

We are going live with this following week.

We are using UZAWE - payment method supplement field to capture the payment purpose codes.

User can input payment purpose codes in uzawe field while invoice posting.(FV60, MIR7, FB01, F-47 screens)

Let me know if you need any inputs on this.

Thanks and Regards,
