Set Up Export Protocols

Before you can use electronic banking, you must set up export protocols. Export protocols define the file format that is generated when you export payment history to be processed by the bank. Each line contains an export protocol identified by a code and a description. You can set up as many export protocols as necessary. You must set up an export protocol for domestic payments, international payments, SEPA payments, and non-Euro SEPA payments.

With export protocols, you can assign the codeunit that defines the check that should be performed before exporting the payment lines to a file and the report that defines the payment format. For example, you might have an export protocol named DOM1. This export protocol contains the Check Domestic Payments check codeunit and the File Domestic Payments report. Each export protocol has both a check codeunit and a matching report, as shown in the following table.

Check Object ID Export Object ID
2000002 Check Domestic Payments Report 2000001 File Domestic Payments
2000003 Check International Payments Report 2000002 File International Payments
2000004 Check SEPA Payments Report 2000005 File SEPA Payments
2000005 Check Non Euro SEPA Payments Report 2000006 File Non Euro SEPA Payments
If you do not want this option, set to zero, otherwise select another option. XMLport 1000 (SEPA pain.001.001.03 Payments)

After you have set up export protocols, you can use them in your electronic banking payment journals.
