BT - E-Invoice Sending - Attachment name is not valid


Summary:

Error E-mail Subject: BT-Service Alert: Invalid Invoices.

Error: Attachment name is not valid

Cause:

This error notification email is sent automatically from BT when the name of the invoice data files received in BT are longer than 150 characters. While sending an invoice to Basware BT for processing, the sender may send one or more files associated with that invoice.

  1. Invoice data
  2. Invoice legal image
  3. Invoice attachment

If the filename of any one of these files or filename of all the files is grater than 150 characters then the invoice will get rejected.

Resolution:

Rename the file(s) to be less than 100 characters and resend the invoice. Note that when BT processes the invoice, the invoice image and invoice attachment the filename gets 36 characters added (i.e. file typ_sender(id)_receiver(id)_bt(no.)_) . Therefore, the filename should be within 100 characters limit.

Checklist:

Please note that the new filename(s) should be replaced in the invoice data too.

Support:

If you are unable to resolve the issue on your own, please provide the following information to your Basware Support (Basware ServiceNow contact form) and submit a case.
