Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payment Management work center.
  2. Go to the Payment Allocation view.
  3. Find the relevant Payment Allocation.

The Payment Method is showing as Other Incoming/Outgoing Payment.


As per system specifications, if the Country Code is DE, for instance, and proprietary-code is available in the file, then system will derive the transaction code from the proprietary-code.

For example, if file has the tag <Prtry><Cd>XXX</Cd>, that is the information the system will use, and the information maintained in the tag is <SubFmlyCd>ABC</SubFmlyCd>.

This is why even though you maintained the mapping of the code ABC to use, for example, the Bank Statement item gets created with Other Incoming Payments and not as per maintained in Fine Tuning.

(XXX - Relevant Proprietary Code).

(ABC - Desired External Transaction Code).


Please maintain Proprietary Code in the Business Configuration so the system will provide the desired Payment Method in the Bank Statement.

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Overview view.
  3. Find Automatically Generated Bank Statements.
  4. Click Open.
  5. Click Edit import formats for automatic generated bank statements.
  6. Select relevant Import Format.
  7. Click Add Row.
  8. Maintain information for External Transaction Code XXX.
