Importing DMEE format mappings into Map Payment Format Data and DMEEX

SAP offers three different apps made for payment file mapping, DMEE on older SAP ERP releases, DMEEX on SAP S/4HANA OnPremise and Fiori Map Payment Format Data app on SAP S/4HANA Cloud. All those apps’ purpose is to manage definitions of your payment formats. In order to use older DMEE format tree in S/4HANA apps, a conversion of the format mapping is required.

In the past, it was only possible to convert DMEE format mappings into DMEEX and DMEEX format mappings into Map Payment Format Data (a guide on these conversions is available here). In SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1905 release, we came up with a functionality to import and convert DMEE format mappings directly into Map Payment Format Data.

 

DMEE to Map Payment Format Data

In order to open a DMEE format mapping in the Map Payment Format Data Fiori app, follow the instructions below.

  1. Download the XML file of your DMEE format mapping (through “Download XML file” in the top menu) and save the file into your computer.
  2. Open the Fiori Map Payment Format Data app
  3. Import the XML file (To import a payment format mapping, search or filter for your payment format mapping, select it in the hierarchy, then click the Import Select the format mapping file from your computer. The imported format mapping will open in the format mapping details screen.)
  4. After the tree opens, click check. 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.
  5. After modifying the tree into a correct format, click ‘Release’ to release the tree.

The format mapping is now active, and you can use it within the Map Payment Format Data Fiori app.

 

DMEE to DMEEX

To open a DMEE format mapping in the DMEEX transaction, you can either follow the steps below or follow the guide in this blog post (there is also a video guide available).

  1. Download the XML file of your DMEE format mapping (through “Download XML file” in the top menu) and save the file into your computer.
  2. Import the XML file into the DMEEX transaction.
  3. After the tree opens, click check. 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.
  4. After modifying the tree into a correct format, click ‘Activate’ to activate the tree.

The format mapping is now active, and you can use it within the DMEEX transaction.
