Reproducing the Issue

  1. Configure Payment medium format In Manage Your Solution -> Configure Your Solution -> Application Area: Financial Accounting -> Sub Application Area: Accounts Payable: -> Step Name Map Payment Format Data  - ID 100558 - (See links below on structure and guidance for payment medium format)
  2. Execute Manage Automatic Payment (App ID F0770)
  3. Download file in app Manage Payment Media (App ID F1868)


Node is executed when the result of the condition defined on it is true and it is not when the result is false.


Check conditions of node itself or nodes above



This condition results in no execution(=false) of node as Type Constant Left Argument 1 cannot be equal to Type Constant Right Argument Space

See Condition


When a file is generated, the app processes the payment format mapping hierarchy and checks each node for conditions. If a condition is met or no condition exists, the system processes the node; if it is not, the node is ignored.

If a condition for an upper-level node is not met, all subnodes are also ignored during processing.
