Converting DMEE formats into DMEEX and Manage Payment Formats

 

SAP offers three different apps made for payment file mapping, DMEE on older SAP ERP releases, DMEEX on SAP S/4HANA and Fiori Manage Payment Formats app on SAP S/4HANA Cloud. All those apps’ purpose is to manage your payment formats.

In order to use one app’s format tree in another app, a conversion of the format tree is required. In this article, I will explain how to convert trees from DMEE into DMEEX and from DMEEX into Fiori Manage Payment Formats app.

DMEE to DMEEX

Let’s start with the DMEE to DMEEX conversion. I will demonstrate all steps needed to take in order to open a DMEE format tree in the DMEEX transaction starting with importing the payment format structure into DMEE.

First, open the DMEE transaction. Define a tree type name the tree in the Format Tree field. To import the tree, click ‘More’ in the top menu, select Format Tree and select the ‘Upload XML File’ option.

Click Save in the right bottom corner, then click on the Activate button in the top left corner. Then open the same tree in the DMEEX transaction. But beware, after opening the tree in DMEEX, the tree will no longer be accessible via the DMEE transaction.

After the tree opens, click check in the top menu. After clicking the ‘Check’ button, errors may appear due to incompatibility.

You must remove those errors in a way that upon using the tree would act in the same way as in the DMEE transaction.

After modifying the tree into a correct format, click ‘Activate’ in the top menu to activate the tree.
The tree is now active and you can use it within the DMEEX transaction.

Watch the video below demonstrating the whole process. 

DMEEX to Manage Payment Formats

Now, let’s move onto the DMEEX to Manage Payment Formats conversion.

First, run the DMEEX transaction. Fill out the tree type and the Format Tree name field, then click the on the Change button.

In the administrative data tab of the tree properties, check the ‘Fiori Extensible’ option.
Before checking the ‘Fiori Extensible’ option, make sure there are no user exits used since they are not supported by Fiori.

Activate the tree from the top menu then go back to the initial screen of DMEEX.

Then click on the Download XML file in the top menu and save the file into your computer.

Now open the Fiori Manage Payment Formats app.
In the Payment Formats list, find an XX_Empty_XML_File format, which is a base template format for XML files.

Since the tree ID of the imported tree must correspond with the one into which you are importing the tree, you must rename the tree ID in your XML file to XX_Empty_XML_File. Read more about the empty formats here.

After saving the file, import it into Manage Payment Formats by clicking on the Import button in the top menu.

Then display the tree and simply activate it by clicking the Activate button in the bottom menu.
You have now successfully imported an DMEEX tree into Manage Payment Formats.

Watch the video below demonstrating the whole process. 

 

Note: The possibility to make the tree Fiori Compatible is only present in the DMEEX transaction which is only available on SAP S/4HANA 1709 On-Premise release and newer.
