2. Clearing Interface – DTA Messages
2.1
Introduction
All the customer payments (normal) and direct debit notes within Germany will be handled in DTA
format. Oracle FLEXCUBE handles the DTA messages through the clearing interface.
There is usually a single file, one for credit notes and one for debit notes, transfer containing
mass data. It is called EMZ (Electronic Mass Transfer).
2.1.1 File Format
The DTA format is as shown below:
A – Header
C – All the payment records
E – End
2.1.2 File Name
DTAUS (in HDR1 Field 3). The file name must invariably appear at the start of Field 3 of the
HDR1. The entry of additional information (maximum 11 positions) after the file name ‘DTAUS’ is
permissible. Such additional information should be separated from the file name ‘DTAUS’ with a
point (X ‘4B’).
2.1.3 Structure and Specifications of DTA Messages
The structure and specifications of the DTA messages are explained in the subsequent sections.
2.1.3.1 A – Header

2. Variable part
The variable part forms one unit together with the constant part. It is only present
if the data fields in the constant part are insufficient for recording information. A
maximum of 15 extension parts can be appended to the constant part of the data
record C, taking into account the ascending sequence of the extension sign. The
following may occur: one extension part for “ “beneficiaries ” or “party liable to
pay” (01); up to 13 extension parts for “purpose of payment” (in each case 02)
and 1 extension part for “remitter” or “payee” (03).
In the case of return remittances, the content of extension parts cannot be given
by the banks. All the ‘purpose of payment’ details required for the processing of
such return remittances and reverse debits should therefore be included by the
payee or the client in the constant part of the data recorded C (see explanations
concerning Field C 16).
This means that when the payment/direct debit is initiated by the customer in DTA
format the customer should not use any of the extension part for describing the
purpose of payment. This is because if the bank rejects the same for any reason
bank will use the extension records to give the reason for rejection, date of
rejection etc. So there is a risk of purpose of payment getting over written by the
rejection message if customer uses the extension part. The purpose of payment
should be intact as much as possible even in the rejection message. Also there is
a specific format in which the rejection details need to be written which is given in
Section 4.

There is no obligation on the part of the Bank to enter the text code supplement ‘888’.
2
If the remitter / payee is a non-resident within the meaning of the Foreign Trade and Payments
Ordinance, the text code supplement ‘000’ should be supplemented by ’888’ if the payment amount
exceeds 12,500 Euros. The text code supplement ’888’ should be changed by the bank of the
beneficiary/the paying agency while printing out the account statements or the debit / credit vouchers in
the indication text “Follow AWV Disclosure Requirements; Information under 0800/1234111”. As for all
remittances, it also applies to remittance of a non-resident to a resident, there is an identification
obligation if there is a negative check-digit calculation or a missing target account number: in the case of
a negative check-digit calculation, the payment exchange record must be identified with the text code
supplement ‘444’ for payments up to 12,500 Euros; for payments exceeding 12,500 Euros, the text code
2-26
supplement ‘844’ should be used. Remittances in which the beneficiary account number is not
mentioned should be marked with the text code supplement ‘445’ (account number missing) for
payments up to 12,500 Euros. For payments exceeding 12,500 Euros, such remittances from a nonresident to a resident should be identified with the text code supplement ‘845’.
3
The alphabets ‘nn’ should be replaced by the original text code of DTA payments that have been
executed twice by mistake. Thereafter, the reverse entry for the accidental double DTA entry should
be identified with ‘05519’.
4
The alphabets ‘nn’ should be replaced by the original text code from Field 7 a of the BSE/GSE data
record. The alphabet ‘X’ should be replaced by the relevant number of the encoded Ground for
Return:
‘0’ for “RETURNED CHEQUE”,
‘1’ for “ACCOUNT CANCELLED”,
‘2’ for “ACCOUNT NO./BANK CODE NUMBER WRONG”,
‘5’ for “STOPPED CHEQUE”;
‘6’ for “DATA ERROR TRAVELLER’S CHEQUE”,
‘7’ for “GSE DOCUMENT NOT PRESENTED”.
5
The alphabet ‘X’ should be replace by the relevant number of the encoded Ground for Return:
‘0’ (no entry),
‘1’ for “ACCOUNT CANCELLED”,
‘2’ for “ACCOUNT NUMBER FALSCH” or “SAVINGS ACCOUNT.” “ACCOUNT NO/NAME NOT
IDENTICAL” (the relevant text constant is to be allocated)
‘3’ for “NO PAYMENT PRE-AUTHORISATION” or “NO DIRECT DEBIT AUTHORISATION”,
‘4’ for “RECALL”,
‘5’ for “DUE TO INCONSISTENCY” (this is only possible in the case of debit reversal entries from the
direct debiting procedure),
‘6’ for “RETURN/CHARGEBACK FOR EXAMPLE MAESTRO”,
‘7’ for the absence of GSE cheques, no special provision as per Footnote 4.
6
For amounts up to 12,500 Euros, the numerical ISO country code of the country of the remitter can be
used instead of the text code supplement ’000’, for example:
056

EZÜ remittances in which the calculation of the check-digit for the account number of the beneficiary
leads to a negative result, should be marked with the text code supplement ‘444’ (check-digit
calculation negative). Remittances in which the account number of the beneficiary is not present
should be identified with the text code supplement ‘445’ (account number missing).
8
The alphabets ‘XX’ should preferably be replaced by ‘00’ or by the relevant % percentage of the
savings bonus, the alphabet ‘J’ should be replace by the last digit of the year for which the payment
is valid. For example: in the case of a payment for 2001 with 10% savings bonus, the correct entry
for the data field 7 shall be: ‘54001’ or ‘54101’.
9
The alphabets ‘YY’ should be replaced by the original text code of the DTA remittance. The alphabet
‘Z’ should be replace by the respective digit of the encoded Ground for Return:
‘1’ for “ACCOUNT CANCELLED”,
‘2’ for “ACCOUNT/BANK CODE NUMBER WRONG”,
‘3’ for “CONTRACT

or
“CONTRACT

Remittances in which the account number of the beneficiary is not specified should be identified with
the text code supplement ‘445’ (account number missing).
2.1.4 Definition of a Return Direct Debit
If a direct debit is returned by the bank or by the customer, a DTA message will be generated to
intimate the originating bank. The reject DTA message will change from the original DTA
message mainly in terms of the following explained fields. The reason for rejection is written in
the first 4 lines of the C extension record with identifier of the extension part as 02. If there is
already some data in the extension part of the original DTA message it will be over written by this.
So, the DTA standards suggest the customers to put the purpose of payment in the original
record field C16 with the least text possible.
The original C-record of a non payed direct debit has some changes:
C4 (BLZ Bank-Code) changes with C10
C5 (Account-#) changes with C11
C14 (Name) changes with C15
2-28
C12 contains the sum of the original amount + foreign charge + own charge (the highest charge:
3,5 € each
C16 contains the old C16
C6 contains the old C6
Field C7a contains '09'
Field C7b contains the old C7a-field (04 or 05) with an extension of the code number indicating
the reason for return:
0 – No details given - keine Angabe
1 – Account no longer exists – Konto erloschen
2 - Details not clear – account# is wrong – account # differs from name – ' KTO-Nr. Falsch' KTONr/Name nicht identisch
3 – No instruction to pay debit notes – Kein Abbuchungsauftrag (C7a old = 04) – Keine
Einzugsermächtigung ( c7a old = 05)
4 – Recall – Rückruf
5 – Due to objection by debtor – Wegen Widerspruch
6 – Return / chargeback EDC – Rückgabe
(1) If the bank rejects the direct debit the first 4 extensions (reason for payment) should contain:
123456789012345678901234567
first:

The reason for rejection ranged from values 1 to 6. Only 1 to 6 other than 5 can be used if bank
rejects the same. If bank rejects the direct debit, then the first format will be used in the first four
extensions part of the C record. First line contains original date, second line original amount, third
line the foreign charge and local charge and fourth line the reason for rejection.

2.1.5 Maintaining Clearing Message Types
A Clearing Transaction/Message Type is a Payment Order belonging to a Transfer Category.
These Clearing Message Types / Categories will be specific to the Network (example BankGiro
etc).
You can maintain the clearing message Type/Category details through the ‘Clearing Msg Type’
maintenance screen. You can invoke this screen by typing ‘IFDTXNTY’ in the field at the top right
corner of the Application tool bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
2-30
In this screen you can capture the following attributes about the clearing message
Type/Category:
Network ID – a valid network code from a pre-defined set of Network Codes. For instance
you can define a network code called DTA.
Clearing Message Type – a valid name to identify the clearing message type which is to
be associated with the Network ID. You can also capture a brief description to identify the
clearing message type.
Process Direction – specify whether the payment order which you are defining belongs to
the Incoming transfer order or whether it belongs to the Outgoing transfer category.
Product Category/Product Restriction – If the process direction of the transaction type,
which you are defining, is Incoming, you will associate existing PC Product Categories
with each transaction type. Conversely, if the process direction is Outgoing, you will need
to associate existing PC Products with each transaction type. You can specify product
category/product restrictions in the form of allowed lists or disallowed lists.
2.1.6 Viewing Clearing Message Type
You can view clearing message type details using ‘Clearing Msg Type Summary’ screen. You
can invoke this screen by typing ‘IFSTXNTY’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application
tool bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
In the above screen, you can base your queries on any or all of the following parameters and
fetch records:

2.1.7 Maintaining Clearing Interface derived UDFs
As part of maintenance, you have to establish a mapping between the Local Payments module of
Oracle FLEXCUBE to fields that are required by the clearing network. In other words, Oracle
FLEXCUBE tags are mapped to the corresponding external system tags. Sometimes, you may
not find a direct relationship between an external system tag and the Oracle FLEXCUBE tags.
For such tags, with no corresponding tags in Oracle FLEXCUBE, you can define an UDF (User
Defined Field) and obtain a value by writing derivation logic. Likewise, you can also write rejection
logic. If a particular contract in the hand-off message satisfies the rejection criteria, the system will
reject the entire contract. The rejection logic will filter the contracts within the message that is
being handed-off.
During mapping, you can map the external tag with the corresponding UDF name.
Example
The external system may have a tag called – Account Type. A corresponding tag does not exist in Oracle
FLEXCUBE. Instead, Oracle FLEXCUBE has a tag called ‘Account_No’. Therefore, to obtain a value for
‘Account Type’, you can derive a logic such that if the first character of the Account No. is ‘C’, the Account
Type would be ‘Normal’ else it will be considered as a ‘Special’ account. Therefore, when you actually handoff a message, the Account Type would be associated with the value ‘Normal’ or ‘Special’ as the case may
be.
You can maintain the UDFs in the ‘Clearing Interface Derived UDF’ screen. You can invoke this
screen by typing ‘IFDCLDUD’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application tool bar and
clicking the adjoining arrow button.
2-32
In this screen, you have to specify the following details:
UDF Name and UDF Description
You can specify a unique name to identify the UDF. A brief description can also be provided in
the adjacent field.
UDF Type
Additionally, you should also specify the type of the UDF being defined – whether you are writing
a logic to derive a tag value or for filtering the transactions (in a message file) based on a
rejection criteria.
Network
Specify the network for which you are writing the derivation/rejection logic.
To execute the logic, click on the ‘X’ button. If you encounter any error during execution, you can
view the same by clicking on the ‘E’ button. Make the necessary corrections before you reexecute the logic.
The UDFs defined through this screen will be available in the drop-down menu of the ‘Derive
Type’ field in the ‘Clearing Message Type’/’Group Details Maintenance’ screen. This is discussed
in the section that follows.
You can maintain only 25 derived logics (UDFs) for all the networks that are applicable for
data exchange with Oracle FLEXCUBE. Likewise, you can maintain only one rejection logic per
network.
2.1.8 Viewing Clearing Interface Derived UDF
You can view clearing interface derived UDF using ‘Clearing Interface Derived UDF Summary’
screen. You can invoke this screen by typing ‘IFSCLDUD’ in the field at the top right corner of the
Application tool bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
2-33
In the above screen, you can base your queries on any or all of the following parameters and
fetch records:

Each network and clearing message type/category has a fixed format that needs to be handed off
from or uploaded into Oracle FLEXCUBE. Therefore you will need to specify the format in which
data is to uploaded and handed-off. You can do this through the ‘Group Details Maintenance’
screen. You can invoke this screen by typing ‘IFDTXNDT’ in the field at the top right corner of the
Application tool bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
Through this screen you can establish a mapping between the Local Payments module of Oracle
FLEXCUBE to fields that are required by the network. A predefined set of Clearing Message
Types will be shipped along with the software. You can change the default attributes of these
message types to suit the requirements of your bank.
Network ID
The Oracle FLEXCUBE Clearing Gateway is a common channel for data exchange between
Oracle FLEXCUBE and the local clearing networks applicable. The details of the applicable local
clearing networks are maintained in Oracle FLEXCUBE. You can define the process direction for
each of these clearing networks, through the ‘Clearing Message Type Maintenance’ screen
You can select the ID assigned to the Network whose tag names need to correspond with those
maintained in Oracle FLEXCUBE.
On selection of the network from the available option-list, the description gets defaulted
alongside.
Process Direction
The format for hand-off from Oracle FLEXCUBE is different from the format for upload into Oracle
FLEXCUBE. Therefore, you need to indicate the process direction for which the format is being
defined.
The options are:
Incoming (for upload into Oracle FLEXCUBE)
Outgoing (for hand-off from Oracle FLEXCUBE)
2-35
Clearing Message Group / Type
Incoming message (uploads) formats are defined for a Clearing Message Group. When you
select the ‘Incoming’ option, the set of Clearing Message Groups supported in Oracle FLEXCUBE
are made available to you in the option-list provided. Select the appropriate Group from the list.
The format will be applicable to all product categories belonging to the transaction types linked to
the selected Message Group.
Likewise, outgoing message (hand-offs) formats are defined for a Clearing Message Type. On
selection of the ‘Outgoing’ option, all the Clearing Message Types supported in Oracle
FLEXCUBE become available in the option-list provided. The outgoing message forma Oracle
FLEXCUBE t being defined will be applicable to all products that fall within the selected Clearing
Message Type.
Number Padding/Direction
The messages that are uploaded to or handed-off from Oracle FLEXCUBE consists of fields of a
specific length. Most often, the maximum field length is not utilized when you capture the actual
field values. Therefore, you need to specify a padding character to fill the gaps.
You also need to indicate the direction of the padding characters – whether you would like to pad
to the left of the actual field value or to its right. Normally, for numeric fields, you would choose to
pad to the left of the numeric value.
Example
Assume that the length of a numeric field, say ‘Amount’ is 10 and the actual field value is ‘100’, consisting of
only 3 digits. Further, you select ‘0’ (zero) as the padding character and choose to pad to the left of the field
value.
If the message consists of this numeric field, zero will be used to fill the gaps and the value will be displayed
as: ‘0000000100’.
Alpha Padding/Direction
Similarly, you have to select the padding character for the alphanumeric fields in Oracle
FLEXCUBE. You also need to indicate the padding direction for the same. Normally, for
alphanumeric fields, you would choose to pad to the right of the actual value.
Oracle FLEXCUBE Nodes
Just like in Oracle FLEXCUBE, the clearing network too may have a set of its own Tag
definitions. Consequently, it becomes necessary to maintain a mapping between the information
tags within Oracle FLEXCUBE with those required by the clearing network.
The Oracle FLEXCUBE node represents a set of tags grouped together. It is known as the parent
node/record from which the sub records/sub nodes (tags) are derived for mapping to the external
tags.
Format Type
As stated earlier, the messages that are handed off and uploaded into Oracle FLEXCUBE are in
the ASCII file format. An ASCII file consists of the following sections (in the order specified):
1. File Header
2. Batch Header
3. Batch Body
4. Batch Footer
2-36
5. File Footer
You can maintain a format for each section of the ASCII file.
The file header marks the beginning of a file. Every batch begins with a batch header and ends
with the batch footer. The batch body is the actual content of the message that is being handed
off or uploaded. The file footer marks the end of the file. A file can consist of several file headers,
file footers, batch footers and so on. You can maintain a format for each occurrence of a format
type within the ASCII file.
Format Seq. No
The format of an ASCII file is as shown below:
File Header
Batch Header
Batch Body
Batch Footer
File Footer
To recall, a file can consist of multiple file headers, batch headers, file footers and so on. The
sequence number determines the manner in which multiple formats (of the same format type)
appear in the ASCII file.
Oracle FLEXCUBE automatically sequences these formats for you. If you are maintaining more
than one file header format for a combination of Clearing Network and Oracle FLEXCUBE Node,
the sequence number will start with one and get incremented by one for each subsequent file
header format.
External Node
Just as the Oracle FLEXCUBE node represents a set of tags grouped together, the external node
is a unique name for identifying the set of tags belonging to the external system (clearing network
in this case). You will need to map each tag identified by the external node to the corresponding
tag belonging to the selected Oracle FLEXCUBE node.
You can enter a brief description of the external node in the adjacent field.
External Node Counter
Multiple occurrences of the same ‘External Node’ for a network and format type combination are
tracked by means of an external tag counter. This is required if a single external tag has to hold
multiple columns of data when mapped to the corresponding Oracle FLEXCUBE tag.
2-37
The following example will illustrate this concept:
In the Oracle FLEXCUBE node ‘Cust_Add’, the following child tags represent the address details:
Add1
Add2
Add3
Add4
The value for each tag is required to upload or handoff the complete customer address details.
The External Node ‘211’ consists of maintenance required for customer address details. It consists of a
single tag ‘Address’.
In order for the external system tag ‘Address’ to hold multiple columns of data (from the corresponding
Oracle FLEXCUBE tags Add1, Add2, Add3 and Add4), you need to map ‘Address’ with each of the Oracle
FLEXCUBE tags.
Add1
Address
Add2
Add3
Add4
To achieve this, you need to create a new record in the Clearing Msg Type/Group Details Maintenance for
each mapping, for the same combination of:
Clearing Network,
External Node,
Oracle FLEXCUBE Node, and
Format Type
The external node counter will track each occurrence of the above combination. The count starts from one
and gets incremented by one for every new record.
The Format Sequence Number will also get incremented by one for the same combination of
Clearing Network, Format Type and Oracle FLEXCUBE Node.
IS Optional
On occasion you may need to send additional payment information with an ACH payment by
using extended record formats called addenda. Addenda may include payment related
information such as Customer Addresses or Reject Codes. While maintaining Clearing Message
Group/Type maintenance record for addenda you can indicate whether the record is optional or
mandatory. Check the option box to indicate that the format you are maintained is an optional
one. Leave the box unchecked to indicate that it is a mandatory record.
Length check required
You have the option to indicate whether you want to calculate the length of each line in the file. If
you specify that line check is required, you can maintain line attributes such as start position and
length for the clearing message group in the ‘Clearing Msg Group Maintenance’ screen explained
later in this manual.
Date and Time Format
For date related fields, you need to identify the format in which the date value will be sent from
and received into Oracle FLEXCUBE. By default, Oracle FLEXCUBE sends all date fields in
‘RRRRMMDD’ format.
2-38
Similarly, for time related fields you have to identify the format in which the time value is to be
sent from and received into Oracle FLEXCUBE. For instance, you can maintain a format like
HHMMSS. This format will continue to apply for the entire line of the message format.
Value Translation
For each Oracle FLEXCUBE Node and External Tag combination, you have to indicate whether
translations should be performed for all tag values associated with the tag names. A value
translation is required only if the values sent by Oracle FLEXCUBE do not match with the external
system specifications and vice versa.
Example
Assume that Oracle FLEXCUBE recognizes only USD (for US Dollars). The external system requires the
value of US dollars as Dollar. When you upload into Oracle FLEXCUBE, if the value of the tag ‘CCY’ is
Dollar, it gets translated to USD. Likewise, during handoff, USD gets translated to Dollar. However, it takes
place only if translation is set for the external system and Oracle FLEXCUBE tag combination.
2.1.10 Mapping sub-nodes with the corresponding nodes in the External System
As part of the format maintenance, you need to ensure that each child tag defined in the External
Node corresponds to a pre-defined tag in Oracle FLEXCUBE.
Step I
After capturing the name of the ‘External Tag’ of the clearing network, identify the corresponding
‘Oracle FLEXCUBE Node’.
Step II
After you select the Oracle FLEXCUBE node, the sub-nodes/child nodes (also called child tags)
linked to the selected node will be displayed in the drop-down list available for the ‘Oracle
FLEXCUBE Tags’. You can key in the appropriate external sub-node (belonging to the External
Node specified earlier) and map it to the corresponding Oracle FLEXCUBE sub-node/tag.
Example
Assume that the External Node is ‘10’ and consists of the following tags:
RECORD CODE
CONTRACT_NUM
BRANCH
CUSTOMER
The corresponding Oracle FLEXCUBE node is PAYMENTS_COLLECTIONS and the following are the
Oracle FLEXCUBE tags that belong to it:
CONTRACT_REF_NO
BRANCH_OF_INPUT
CUSTNO
CPTY_NO
CUST_AC_NO
Therefore, you need to maintain the following mappings:
CONTRACT_NUM
-
CONTRACT_REF_NO
BRANCH
-
BRANCH_OF_INPUT
CUSTOMER
-
CUSTNO
2-39
If for an external tag, there is no corresponding Oracle FLEXCUBE tag, you can use the
derivation logic to obtain a value for such tags, if required.
Indicating whether data pertaining to a specific tag should be made Mandatory
You have the option of specifying whether the data pertaining to a specific information tag should
necessarily be made available in the incoming/outgoing message. Check the box available under
the column head titled Mandatory.
Specifying the Default Value
You can associate a default value with each information tag.
While uploading or handing off messages suppose an information tag within the
incoming/outgoing message does not have a value associated with it, the system automatically
appends the default value with the particular information tag only if the translation type is set up
for it.
Translation details for the specific Oracle FLEXCUBE and external tag combinations
If you have indicated that ‘Value Translation’ is required for all Oracle FLEXCUBE and external
tag combinations, this specification will be defaulted to all the tag mappings within the Oracle
FLEXCUBE and external node combination. However, you have the option of changing this for
individual tag mappings by choosing the appropriate translation option from the available list. The
seven options available are:
1. No Translation
2. Translation, null return error
3. Null returns default, else no translation
4. Null returns default, else no translation
5. Null returns Null, else translation
6. Derivation
7. System Elements
8. Temporary Data
In case of choosing derivation, the derivation has to be selected from the drop down. In case
of choosing system elements, the element from drop down system element has to be selected.
Let us assume, that you are maintaining the translation details for an information tag called CCY
(currency). The value of this tag in Oracle FLEXCUBE is USD. But the external system uses
Dollar for the same.
2-40
In the ‘Translation Values’ screen, the information that you capture will look as follows:
Oracle FLEXCUBE Value
External Value
USD
Dollar
The example given below illustrates the manner in which the system will behave when you
choose any one of the Translation options:
Example
We have specified the following parameters for the External Tag named CCY (currency).
The Translation Value for:

Oracle FLEXCUBE – USD

External System - Dollar
The Default Value is GBP, which is the local currency.
Case I
If you select the option No Translation, the system will not perform any translation.
As a result, if the message involves the tag ‘CCY’ with value USD, both the incoming and the outgoing
messages will retain the value USD.
Case II
If you select the option:
Translate, null returns error
Condition
The tag value will be translated based on your maintenance in the ‘Translation’ screen. If you fail to send the
corresponding value to the system (i.e. if the value of the tag is null), an error message will be displayed
informing you of the same.
Suppose you had failed to associate a corresponding Oracle FLEXCUBE value (USD) for the External
Value (Dollar) in the ‘Translation’ screen, the system would have displayed an error message informing you
of the same. You would have been allowed to maintain the record only after having maintained the
corresponding translation value.
Case III
If you select the option:
Null returns default, else no translation.
Condition
If the tag value is null, the system will not translate it. However, the default value associated with the tag will
be used.
Result
As stated earlier the Tag Value associated with the external system is Dollar and the corresponding tag
value in Oracle FLEXCUBE is USD. Let us assume that the Tag Value associated with the Tag Name ‘CCY’
is Null. In such a case, the system will use the default value GBP.
Case IV
If you select the option:
Null returns default, else translate.
2-41
Condition
If the tag value is null the default value associated with the tag will be used else the value will be translated
based on your maintenance in the ‘Translation’ screen.
Result
If the tag value in the external tag is ‘Dollar’, during upload, the system will translate this value to USD.
Similarly, or hand-off, USD will get translated to Dollar.
If the Tag Value is Null, the default value GBP will be used.
Case V
If you select the option:
Null returns Null, else translate
Condition
If the tag value is Null, the Tag Value will be retained as Null. If the value is present, it will be translated.
Result
Since the Tag Value is Dollar, it will be translated to USD for upload. For hand-off, the tag value will be
translated to Dollar.
Suppose the Tag Value is Null, it will be retained as null.
Case VI
If you select the option:
Derivation Logic
To recall, you use a derivation logic if for an external tag, there is no corresponding tag in Oracle
FLEXCUBE. The logic is identified by a unique UDF (User Defined Field). You will need to map the name of
the corresponding UDF, to the external tag. During handoff, the system will associate the value obtained
from the derivation logic maintained for the associated UDF.
Case VII
If you select the option
System Element
The external tag will inherit the value of the system element to which it is mapped.
Data Type
In addition to mapping the Oracle FLEXCUBE tags with the external tags, you should also specify
the type of data for each tag. The Data Type indicates the nature of the data – whether it is
numeric or a character format.
The following options are available:
CHAR.
NUMBER
DATE, and
TIME
Start Position and Data Length
To differentiate the data of one tag from another, you will need to indicate the position from where
a particular tag begins. The length of the data within the tag should also be captured.
2-42
For instance let us assume that you have specified the following details:
Tag 1


Start Position – 1
Data Length – 10
Tag 2


Start Position – 11
Data Length - 10
As a result, while processing data, the system will identify the first 10 characters as Tag 1 and the
next 10 characters (11 to 20) for Tag 2.
Derive Type
For an external tag, if you choose the translation option as ‘Derivation Logic’ you have to map it to
the corresponding UDF name. You would have already maintained the UDF in the ‘Derived UDF
Maintenance’ screen. The external tag will get the value based on the logic that you have
maintained for the selected UDF.
All the UDFs that you maintain in Oracle FLEXCUBE will be available in the drop-down list. You
can select the appropriate one from the list.
System Elements
If you need to hand-off the system (Oracle FLEXCUBE) derived values, you have to select the
translation option System Element. Further, you are also required to map the external tag with a
system element.
The set of system elements are available in the drop-down menu. You can select the appropriate
element to map to the external tag.
For instance, the clearing network may want you to hand-off transactions that were entered in
Oracle FLEXCUBE on a specific calendar date (System Date - the current date as shown in your
machine). The Oracle FLEXCUBE date may be different from the current system date. Therefore,
you will need to map the external tag say ‘Date’ to the system element – SYSDATE. The hand-off
file will contain the actual date of the transactions.
2.1.11 Maintaining Transaction Group
Transaction types having common attributes should be grouped together into Clearing Message
Groups for ease of processing. For each clearing message group that you maintain you will need
to define a set of uniquely identifying specifications. These specifications will determine the
parameters for the manner in which contracts (also referred to as records) are arranged within
ASCII files.
Invoke the ‘Transaction Group Maintenance’ screen from the Application Browser to group
transaction types into clearing message groups. You can invoke the ‘Transaction Group
Maintenance’ screen by typing ‘IFDTXNGR’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application
tool bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
2-43
Indicating the Network ID
In the ‘Clearing Networks’ screen, you can maintain the networks (such as INTERPAY and
HLAYOUT) through which you communicate with other banks and financial institutions for local
currency funds transfers. You can identify the Network ID for which you are grouping transaction
types.
When you select the relevant Network ID from the available option list, the associated description
will be defaulted to the adjacent field.
Identifying the Clearing Message Group
You will have to uniquely identify each clearing message group that you define with an
appropriate name. Additionally, you can also specify a brief description to identify the group.
Specifying the Key Start Position and Key Length
The ASCII file consists of multiple lines of messages. A unique ‘key’ identifies each line of data
within a message. You have to indicate the start position of the key and the length of the key.
This will help you in identifying the key in the message, and subsequently in deciphering the data
that follows.
The key actually denotes an External Node. The values that appear after the key are
assigned to the external tags, as per the format maintained for that external node in the Clearing
Message Type/Group Details Maintenance screen.
Consider the sample shown below:
Here, ‘210’, ‘211’, ‘212’, and ‘213’ are the keys (or external nodes). Each key is used to identify
the line of data that follows. The external tag values will be picked up from the data as per the
specifications in the ‘Clearing Message Type’/’Group Details Maintenance’ screen.
2-44
Identify the Record Separator
The details of each contract are displayed as separate records within an ASCII file. To
differentiate the details of one contract (record) from another within the file, you will need to
identify the key (external node) that would be used to indicate the beginning of a new record
within the ASCII file.
For instance let us assume that you have specified the following details:
Key Start Position – 1
Key Length – 3
Record Separator - 210
Consequently, while processing data the system will differentiate between one record and the
next only after verifying whether the first three characters of the record is three characters in
length and is 210.
Given below is a sample of how record separators are used to distinguish between details of one
contract and another.
Going by our example, in the sample shown above, the details from line 1 to line 10 are
construed to be details of a single record or contract. The details available from line 11 to 21 will
be treated as a second record/contract and so on.
Specifying the Masks and other attributes of the File
The File Mask is the nomenclature in which the external system names the ASCII file. You will
need to capture the corresponding Process File Mask, which is the format in which you have
named the file in Oracle FLEXCUBE.
Example
File Mask: BETOPD04
Process File Mask: BETOPD%d%t### (d is the date, t denotes the time and ### indicates a running serial
number)
2-45
If you check the ‘Use Process File Mask’ box, the external system will name the ASCII file based
on the file mask specified for Oracle FLEXCUBE.
File Extension
In addition to specifying the file masks you have to indicate the manner in which each file is to be
stored. Typically, you can store these files with a ‘btc’ extension. However, you have the choice of
specifying any extension you wish to generate these files in.
File Path
The file path is the directory or area in your system where the ASCII files are to be stored.
Field Separator
You have the option of using delimiters to separate data within a file. The options available are:
$ S – indicating that a space needs to be used as a delimiter.
S T – indicating that a tab needs to be used as a delimiter.
Alternatively, you can also choose to have a comma, a semi-colon, a hyphen etc.
Clearing Message Type Separator
To recall, in this screen you are grouping clearing transaction/message types which share similar
attributes. You have the option of differentiating messages within a group with delimiters.
Session Timeout
The session timeout is the maximum time limit that Oracle FLEXCUBE will wait for a response to
a request sent to the external system. You can indicate in terms of minutes, the time within which
an outgoing file should be processed by the External System and sent back to Oracle
FLEXCUBE. Each time the external system fails to send a response to a request sent by Oracle
FLEXCUBE, within the maximum time limit maintained, Oracle FLEXCUBE will recreate the
message and send it to the external system again. You can maintain a count for the number of
times a message can be resent.
Resend Count
An outgoing message can be resent any number of times. You have to indicate the resend count
in this field. As a result, all messages for the given Network ID and Clearing Message Group
combination can be resent only the specified number of times. For instance, you have indicated 3
as the resend count. A specific message has failed to parse through all three times. Since the
resend count has been busted you will not be able to send the message one more time. The
message will be logged as an error message.
Click ‘Handoff’ tab to invoke the following screen
2-46
Specifying the Handoff Parameters
Since a single hand-off file can have multiple batches you can indicate the number of batches
that should be sent in a single file. Similarly, you have to indicate the number of
transactions/messages types, which should be sent within a batch.
Additionally, you can also specify manner in which message/transaction types are to be sorted.
The options available are:
1. By Clearing Message Type
2. By Account Number
If you select the second option, the transactions/messages will be sorted by the Account Number
involved in the transaction. Else, the sorting will be based on the transactions themselves. For
instance, assume there are 12 transactions within a file. Out of these 12 transactions four involve
the same account number and the other eight involve a different account number. For the given
Clearing Group you have indicated that messages should be sorted as per the Account Number.
As a result the details of eight messages involving the same account will be listed first and the
details of the other four messages will be listed subsequently.
Restricting specific Clearing Transaction Type from a group
A list of all the transaction types you have maintained in the system are displayed in the Available
column. For each Clearing Group that you define you can choose to restrict or allow specific
transaction types in the form of allowed or disallowed lists.
Indicating the Process Direction and the related attributes
A Message Group can be defined to group transaction types maintained for the upload of
messages into Oracle FLEXCUBE (Incoming) or for the hand-off of messages from Oracle
FLEXCUBE (Outgoing). You have to indicate the process direction of the message group. You
will need to specify the process attributes depending upon the process direction that you specify.
Click ‘Incoming Attributes’ tab to invoke the following screen:
2-47
Outgoing attributes:
If you are maintaining the details of an outgoing message group you have to specify the attributes
of the batch hand-off file that is sent. These include:
Include/Reject – indicates whether the details of the rejected contracts need to be part of
the outgoing file.
Block Enabled – indicates whether the outgoing file needs to be block enabled.
Line Length – indicate the length of a line within a block.
Block Filler – specifies the identifier, which should be used to identify the block.
Block Factor - specifies the factor by which the line length should be multiplied. This in
turn will provide the total number of characters in the block.
Incoming attributes:
Automatic Auth – if enabled indicates that the incoming file should be automatically authorized
upon receipt.
Transaction Basis – specifies the basis on which transactions are grouped in an incoming file.
The options available are:


Record Based
Batch Based
If the records are batch based you have to capture the Batch Key Start position and the Batch
Key Length to uniquely identify the batch.
Length Attributes
Length Check Required
If you have opted for this facility in ‘Clearing Message Type’ screen and also check this box here,
the system will calculate the length of the particular line and subsequently writes the calculated
value from the length starting position maintained for the particular message group.
Starting Position
This field indicates the position from which the calculated value has to be written into.
Length
2-48
This indicates the length for the line.
Example:
Let us assume that the length of the transaction line is about 300. The line attributes indicated are:
Start position - 6
Length of position – 5
The calculated value will be 300 and positions 6 to 10 will denote the length of the line.
Oracle FLEXCUBE automatically writes the calculated value from position 6 to 10 as 00300.
Click ‘Clearing Msg Type Allowed’ tab invoke the following screen:
2.1.12 Viewing Transaction Group Details
You can view the transaction group details using ‘Transaction Group Summary’ screen. You can invoke the
‘Transaction Group Maintenance’ screen by typing ‘IFDTXNGR’ in the field at the top right corner of the
Application tool bar and clicking the adjoining arrow button.
2-49
In the above screen, you can base your queries on any or all of the following parameters and
fetch records:
Authorization Status
Record Status
Network Id
Clearing Message Group
File Mask
File Extension
Select any or all of the above parameters for a query and click ‘Search’ button. The records
meeting the selected criteria are displayed.
Authorization Status
Record Status
Network Id
Clearing Message Group
File Mask
File Extension
2.2
Outgoing Clearing Upload
For the actual message hand-off, you have to manually trigger the event from Oracle
FLEXCUBE. You also need to specify the network and the clearing message group for which the
hand-off file has to be created. This file (in ASCII format) is eventually handed-off by Oracle
FLEXCUBE.
2-50
You can trigger the message hand-off event through the ‘Outgoing Clearing Upload’ screen
invoked from the Application Browser. You can invoke the ‘Outgoing Clearing Upload’ screen by
typing ‘IFDHFDET’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application tool bar and clicking the
adjoining arrow button.
For message hand-off, you need to select the network and the clearing message group as
mandatory information.
Additionally, you can also specify one or all of the following options for hand-off:
Single Branch – if you want to hand-off messages from a specific branch for the selected
network and message group combination. You can select the branch from the option-list
available.
Single Customer – if you want to hand-off transactions for a specific customer, for the
selected network and message group combination, choose the name of the customer
from the option-list provided. Transactions involving all the accounts of the selected
customer will be handed-off.
Single Account – select this option if you want to hand-off transactions involving a
specific customer account, for the selected network and message group combination.
You can select the account from the option-list provided.
Single Contract – will hand-off details of a specific contract.
If you select only the network and message group, the system will hand-off all the contracts
(irrespective of the branches, customers, and accounts involved) for the selected combination.
For hand-off, you should also specify the following:
File Path
You can also specify the path for storing the hand-off file. When you trigger the process, the
hand-off file will be picked up from the path you specify here. If you do not specify a path, the file
will be picked up from the path specified for the selected message group.
At the time of implementation of Oracle FLEXCUBE, the implementer will create the following
five folders in the file path that you specify in the Handoff of ‘Clearing Details’ screen (if not
specified, the folders will be created in the path maintained for selected message group):
2-51
in folder
out folder
wip folder (work in progress)
fccarea folder (for Internal logging)
debug folder
Handoff Grouping
You also have the option of grouping the transactions within the hand-off file. The following
options are available for grouping:
By Clearing Message Type – if you select this option, the transactions will be grouped as
batches of different clearing message types that are allowed for the selected clearing
message group.
By Account Type – this option will do the grouping based on the customer accounts
involved in the transactions. All contracts involving a specific customer account will be
grouped under a single batch file.
After you trigger the hand-off process, the system will pick up the relevant tag values for all the
transactions from the database table and display the contents of the hand-off file in the Outgoing
Message Browser (‘Dispatch Outgoing Clearing Log Summary’ screen).
The following details will also be available:
Network – the name of the network to which the file is hand-off is triggered
Transaction Group – the clearing message group for which the hand-off is taking place
2-52
File Name – The name of the hand-off file (in ASCII format)
Amount Total – the sum total of the amount involved in all the transactions that are
handed off
Account Total – the sum total of all the accounts in the transactions. The account number
is a numeric value. The system will add the account numbers involved in each
transaction to display this value.
On confirmation (click the ‘Ok’ button) of the details displayed in the ‘Dispatch’ screen, the upload
file gets created in the path specified. The system will then move the file from the ‘wip area’ to the
‘out’ folder. Prior to moving the file, it will retain a copy of the hand-off file in the ‘fcc’- area as
backup. This marks the successful completion of the hand-off process.
At this stage if you want to cancel the hand-off process, click on ’Exit’ or ‘Cancel’ button.
2.3
Incoming clearing upload
Just like the hand-off process, the upload process too needs to be manually triggered from Oracle
FLEXCUBE.
You can trigger the message upload event through the Incoming ‘Incoming Clearing Upload’
screen invoked from the Application Browser. You can invoke the ‘Incoming Clearing Upload’
screen by typing ‘IFDINDET’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application tool bar and
clicking the adjoining arrow button.
In this screen, you need to identify the network and the message group for which the message
needs to be uploaded. If you do not want to use the file path specified for the Message Group,
you can enter a different path here. This path will take precedence over the one maintained for
the Message Group.
The three folders (mentioned earlier) will be created in the file path specified in this screen.
After you trigger the upload process, the system will pick up the ASCII file from the ‘in’ folder and
move it to the ‘wip’ area. It retains a copy of the file in the ‘fcc’ -area as backup.
2.3.1 Viewing the details of Files that were Handed-off

Processing for the Interface
The interface can either be Online or in a Batch format. For the online mode each contract in
Oracle FLEXCUBE will be handed off as a separate file.
2.4.1 Incoming Message Processing
While processing incoming messages, contracts are uploaded using the following process
stages:
You will initiate the process of uploading files.
The system checks if any recovery operation is required. If required, it is handled first.
The file name is logged into the log table before the contents of the file are processed.
The file name can be used for recovery and reporting.
After this, the entire file is read into memory in chunks.
The key identifier for the message is derived from the position and the number of
characters maintained at the file level. For the Identifier thus derived, the subsequent
details are picked from the message maintenance.
Next, the system processes each line and populates it into a row type. Whenever the
beginning of a new contract is found, the system inserts the row type into the
corresponding table with a particular flag. This process goes on till the end of file is
reached.
The following totals will be kept for each file (driven by a flag)





Total for Debits
Total for Credits
Total for Accounts
Total of Amounts
No of Records in the Message
After processing all the records, the file is moved into the ‘fcc’-area.
All the status for the contracts uploaded will be changed for booking and these data are
processed using a batch function.
2.4.2 Outgoing Message Processing
While processing outgoing messages, the following stages are involved in the creation of
Clearing files:
You will have to specify the File / Clearing Message Type that needs to be created
On initiation, the system first checks if there is any recovery operation is required. If
required, it is handled first.
For the given clearing message type, all products for which the file needs to be created
will be picked up from the Product Mapping- Clearing Message Type maintenance.
Since it is possible for the file to have a batch grouped on an account too, the system will
pick up the corresponding flag for the file.
The system will select the relevant records from the Message Maintenance for a given
message type.
The file level attributes that are maintained will be picked up from File/Clearing Message
Type. These are:


File Name
File Extension
2-56





File Path
Session Timeout
Number of Resends
Number of Transactions in a file
Number of Transaction in a Batch
Contracts pertaining to each product selected from the Product Mapping- Clearing
Message Type maintenance will be picked up for processing for the Clearing File.
The sequence that is followed during the processing is:





File Header Records (FH)
Message Header Records (MH)
Message Records (MR)
Message Footer Records (MF)
File Trailer Records (FF)
The following batch totals are assumed for the trailer records:



Total for Accounts
Total of Amounts
No of Records in the Message
Each record is locked before the data in the record is processed.
If the record is locked successfully, then the details of the record are passed on to the
Business Rule layer to update the record to the dispatch status.
Based on the flag passed from the Business layer, the message is formatted on the basis
of the maintenance done.
A preset number of contracts is processed and committed and written to the file based on
the maintenance done.
After all the contracts are processed the file is moved to the area specified in the
maintenance.
The above processes are also responsible for converting the data formats and tag formats from
the Oracle FLEXCUBE standard format to the formats as required by the external systems. The
above set of processes also translates the fields that require a translation as per the maintenance
for the particular interface.
