In the standard DMEE TREE format SEPA_DD, the German umlauts or the national special characters are replaced.

The translation takes place by use for the function module SCP_REPLACE_STRANGE_CHAR.

For example

German umlauts

Replaced with

Ä

Ae

Ü

Üe

Ö

Oe

ä

ae

ü

ue

ö

oe

This conversion might leads to get the DME file rejected by the bank or some organization have HASH value or CHECKSUM value generated based on the standard table like REGUH etc  from where the details like Customer Name or Vendor Name are fetched.


Predominantly Customer or Vendor Name is one for the key fields based on which the HASH or CHECKSUM values are generated.

So when the DMEE file is sent to the bank or uploaded into the banking web site, the HASH or CHECKSUM value generated will differ.

Let take a case and look into the same.

Customer Name :  JäüüÖ
