DMEEX Upload XML File

Select Yes when asked if you want to continue assigning the tree to the SAP namespace.

Format mapping is in SAP namespace


Step 3: Adapt and activate format tree

The last step is to check the automatically created format tree, if necessary adapt and activate it. In the format definition file, you always receive all the elements in the maximum number of occurrence allowed (for example, 7x element AddrLine) as well as a pre-defined mapping of many fields to SAP standard table fields and User Exits in the FinSystems namespace (/FINSYS/). If certain items are not used in the maximum number or not at all, they can now be deleted. An addition of (non-technical) elements is not allowed, as this would affect the correctness of the format.

Format Check Successful

In order to avoid a warning because of missing documentation, it is recommended to copy the name of the format tree into the documentation field. However, this does not affect the functionality or activatability of the format tree - it works with and without documentation. These simple steps completely define your DMEE format tree structure. Now you can use the activated format tree in your outgoing payment customizing.
