File lines missing 'Customer ID at Supplier' field information.


This is caused due to the assigned Payment Medium Format that is SAP delivered 36 - UK BACS Domestic Payment.

The behavior occurs due to the Payment Medium Format special coding that might skip some of the more generic code, as this is not a usually needed information for this particular format.


Create a new customized Payment Medium Format and assign this new Format to the customized Payment File Format, this way the field will be correctly derived on the Payment Files.
