Importing DMEE formats into Map Payment Format Data and DMEEX

SAP offers three 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 your payment formats. In order to use one app’s format tree in another app, a conversion of the format tree is required.

In the past, it was only possible to transfer DMEE formats into DMEEX formats, and export DMEEX formats and import into Map Payment Format Data (a guide on these conversions is available here). Since SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1905 release and OnPremise 1809 release SP3, we offer functionality to import DMEE formats directly into Map Payment Format Data and to DMEEX as well.

 

DMEE to Map Payment Format Data

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

  1. Open your DMEE transaction.
  2. Download the XML file of your DMEE format tree (in the top left menu choose “Format Tree” then “Download XML file”) and save the file into your computer.
  3. Open the Fiori Map Payment Format Data
  4. Search for your payment format mapping (or create a new one), select it in the hierarchy and then click the Import button at the top right corner.
  5. Select the XML file from your computer. The imported format mapping will open in the format mapping details screen.
  6. After the mapping opens, click on ‘Edit’ at the right corner and then ‘Check’ at the right bottom of the screen. Errors may appear due to some incompatibilities of DMEE with Map Payment Format Data app.
  7. For the mapping to act the same way as in the DMEE transaction you must correct those errors.
  8. After modifying the mapping into a correct format, click ‘Release’ to release the mapping.
  9. In order to move your mapping to the productive system, you must deploy the whole project.

 

The tree is now active, and you can use it within the Map Payment Format Data Fiori app and it as well remains active in the DMEE transaction.

 

DMEE to DMEEX

In case you want to move a DMEE format tree in a DMEEX and keep the tree working in DMEE, follow the instructions below.

  1. Open your DMEE transaction.
  2. Download the XML file of your DMEE format (through “Download XML file” in the top menu) and save the file into your computer.
  3. Open your DMEEX transaction.
  4. Import the XML file into the DMEEX transaction. In the top left menu choose “Format Tree” then “XML” and then “Upload XML file”. After the tree opens, click check. Errors may appear due to some incompatibilities of DMEE with DMEEX. For the tree to act the same way as in the DMEE transaction you must correct those errors.
  5. After modifying the tree into a correct format, click ‘Activate’ (Ctrl+F3) to activate the tree.

The tree is now active, and you can use it within the DMEEX transaction, and it as well remains active in the DMEE transaction.
