Test XML

How can I test my XML file?
If the files are generated using software applications (accounting, cash management, payroll, etc.), the structure should be compatible with the pain.001.001.03 XML format
However:

  • The MultiLine application performs a structural check when uploading XML files.
  • There are applications that can perform syntactical checks on XML files. They highlight tags whose values are incorrect.
  • You can send a test file to BGL BNP Paribas' MultiLine team so that they can carry out checks on it.


PrécautionsWhat precautions should be taken when creating a batch file in XML format(a single debit from the account) ?
With batch payments (wages file), the “batchbooking” tag allows you to define whether a single debit should be carried out (“TRUE” value), or a debit per transaction (“FALSE” value). If this tag is missing, the “TRUE” value is applied by default.
