Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Liquidity Management work center.
  2. Select the view Inbound Files.
  3. Select New -> Inbound Files.
  4. Select File Type: Bank Advice
  5. Enter company and Bank ID information to the relevant fields.
  6. Add Attachment.
  7. Select Upload File.

Error appears.


Japanese banks provide two types of flat files (*.txt), 'Bank Advice' and 'Bank Statements'.

Both use a similar structure and the best way to tell them apart is by looking at the first 3 characters of the file, for a

Bank Advice starts with '101'

Bank Statement starts with '103'

The error is appearing because you have selected File Type: Bank Advice, however the attachment that you had added is for Bank Statements.


Confirm the file type that you want to upload and ensure that both the attachment that you upload, and the file type selection are correct.

Error will no longer appear.
