The difference between Map Payment Format Data, DMEEX and DMEE.
You may have noticed that we currently have three apps for payment file mapping. Those are Map Payment Format Data, DMEEX, and DMEE. There are numerous reasons for it.
You’re probably asking yourself – which app should I be using? Well, if you are on SAP S/4HANA Cloud, you should use Manage Payment Formats. If you are on SAP S/4HANA you should use DMEEX. And if you are on an older SAP ERP release you should use DMEE.
For our SAP S/4HANA Cloud customers, you can use Fiori Map Payment Format Data app. It’s able to process mapping of payment formats and its functionality has been enhanced to a level where you don’t need to use programming in order to modify a format.
What about our OnPremise customers? What is the difference between DMEEX and DMEE?
For start, DMEEX, which stands for Extended Data Medium Exchange Engine is the newest version on SAP S/4HANA, currently developed and being innovated which replaces DMEE (Data Medium Exchange Engine).
As for why are there still two apps for you, the reason is that while DMEEX is advised to be used by our on-premise customers for outgoing payments, it does not possess the functionality of managing incoming formats, therefore, we advise to use DMEE for incoming formats at this moment.

Thank you for the brief and clear explanation. It’s been a while since you have posted this blog, I’d like to clarify a point here. Still DMEE is the only option for incoming formats for S/4HANA on-premise?
we are working on a new incoming solution on S/4HANA. Currently it is integrated in Treasury Correspondence where we are processing MT300, MT320 flat file formats, and in the Advanced Payment Management where we are processing incoming csv files. Plan is to integrate also to payments (bank statements,...) and also process xml files for the future. But there is currently no fix time plan.
Please follow our Treasury Correspondence Format blog to stay up to date.
Thank you for the prompt response. Another question which comes from our customers nowadays is that “Is Advanced Payment Management compatible with Central Finance?”. It’d be great if you can shed some light on this.
