Events can be changes as per client requirement / bank input format requirement. In the above
screen, additional events created copying standard events with event number change in each group.
For ex. If you want to change in ACH header line format, you need to copy Event 20 and created new
event number 21 in the header group i.e. 20. Similarly, if you want changes in line item copy Event
30 and create event 31 incorporating required changes in this event within the group 30. In the
above screen, you will find newly created ZFI_PAYMEDIUM_SAMPLE_21 &
ZFI_PAYMEDIUM_SAMPLE_31 for changes made in Header and Line item. (For required changes we
need to take ABAP help for making necessary format changes in the newly created events)
