Translate and Download Receipt Orders from Batch File in another EDI format
This instruction explains how you translate a batch file with receipt orders. You do this if the batch file is received in
another EDI format than CREMUL, the format supported by M3.
The batch file is translated to format CREMUL. The file is then displayed in 'Batch Payment. Update' (ARS040), ready to be processed.
Verify and adjust any incorrect receipt orders before updating accounts receivable, that is, allocate them to invoice records.
You do this in (ARS040).
No transactions are created. The batch file receives status 0 in (ARS040), that is, it is ready to be processed.
Before you start
The starting conditions listed in Recording Customer Payments via Electronically Transferred Receipt Orders must be met.
M3 standards support files in EDI format CREMUL. If the file containing the orders is not in this format, the file must be
translated. Batch files are translated in 'Batch Payment. Download' (ARS600). This program can also be reached from 'Batch Payment. Update' (ARS040) by selecting option 11 = 'Download payment' before updating for the file in question.
Batch payment types are defined in 'Batch Payment Type. Open' (ARS075). The payment types contain information on accounting string, what detail record under FAM function AR40 should be used, accepted
payment difference, reference number to use at allocation (invoice number or other payment reference number such as OCR number
or credit card number), and exchange rate type. If the file is in a non-CREMUL format, the 'Read-in' check box must be selected
and a translation program specified on the E panel.

On the B panel, select option 1 = 'Create correction proposal' for one of the batch payment types defining what program should
be used for translating received batch files.
