Account information

Settings for account information

Here, you can determine how the electronic account statements provided by the banks will be handled. The descriptions for the checkboxes always refer to the activated state.

Retrieve account statements / advices / PDF statements automatically

As soon as the view Account overview is called up for the first time after the program start, the account information selected with the checkboxes is automatically retrieved from the banks. If data shall be retrieved again during a program session after changing the view, this must be triggered with the Refresh function.

Retrieve account statement / advices when refreshing the account overview

If you update the account overview, account statements or advices are retrieved from the banks. If the checkbox is not set, only the changes made by another user in a multi-user installation are displayed.

Delete advice if up-to-date account statements are available

Since advices are basically outdated when the regular account statements arrive, the advices can also be automatically deleted. You can define this here. You can of course also delete each advice manually.

Split MT940-purpose into SEPA-Tags (SVWZ+, EREF+, ...)

For account statements in MT940 format, information from SEPA payments are stored structured in the field Intended purpose using SEPA tags. Thus, such information, e.g. the End-to-end reference (EREF +), can be made visible in the posting details.

Merge sheets of one statement in account statement conversion

Statement pages are ignored and all statement data is output in a single section under a single statement number.

Export and display unsigned total debit transactions

The negative sign in the fields Total debit transactions, Largest debit transaction and Smallest debit transaction is not displayed when viewing, printing or exporting account statements.

Enrich batched transaction files with information from account statements

The batched transaction files are expanded with data from the account statements that are not shown in the batched transaction files themselves, e.g. the value date for a transaction.

Matching of account statements and batched transaction files with amount check

In certain cases it can happen that the match neither will succeed via reference numbers nor via the time restriction described below. Then an additional adjustment via the amount of the batched transaction can be applied. This setting has priority over the matching with days.

Tolerance of matching account statements and batched transaction files in days

A data adjustment between account statements and batched transaction files is performed based on matching reference numbers. These can however occur multiple times. For this reason, a time window is defined, which is set here.

Create account history for new banks?
Time frame for account history

The default value for the retrieval period of historical account statements is defined here.

Note: This function makes sense when you are migrating to BL Banking from another electronic banking product. This gives you the ability to also manage account statements contained in the other product in BL Banking without cumbersome exports. This type of historical data retrieval is also called from-to retrieval.
