Expense Payment Import


The Expense Payments Import process read files from the ./Incoming/ExpensePayments/ folder in the SFTP. These files will be moved to the archive folder located at ./Incoming/Archive/ExpensePayments/ before being processed in Alphanumeric order.  Flat Files are then transformed to Coupa's XML format.

Payment records for expenses must have an Expense Report Id value.

While Expense payments can be created using CSV integration, all updates must be done through the Expense Report UI.
