DMEE Currency amount conversion not working


I have been trying to get the currency conversion function in DMEE to work and I cannot get what I want.

Here is what I want: right justified two decimal places (with decimal) total length 11.

So if my data is 100, I expect: 100.00

I am just using the DMEE test facility. If I put in 100, I get this:


Is this just a fluke of the DMEE test, or when I actually run this in the PMW, am I gonna get the results I expect?

Does this have something to do with providing a CUKY?

Length = 11

Type = P Currency Amount

Conv Function = AR.2 (but I have tried many more).


System Info:

ECC 5.0

FPAYP-WRBTR is an amount field, which needs to be associated to a currency (in the DDIC definition of FPAYP you can see that it is associated with FPAYP-WAERS). Without an association to a currency, the system doesn't know how to interpret this amount.

Therefore to get a correct formatting of a value in FPAYP-WRBTR, you will also need to fill the FPAYP-WAERS. Please include this field also in your DMEE tree. When you test the tree and enter the amount you should get the correct output.

In the real payment run, the fields will be populated by the application So, even though the currency does not appear as an element in the tree, you will still get the correct formatting of the corresponding amount.

I hope this helps.
