    Hallo Paul,


    our applications are generating unique MSG ID in Header and it looks like:

    ZABA-P008-202101150000000023

    ZABA- is our Bank

    P008- Pacs.008

    YYYYMMDD

    and the seq number of the MSG.

    In MER Facility it could be something like:

    MER-P008-20210611nnnnnnnnnn

    MER as a MSG from MER

    P008 as pacs.008

    YYYYMMDD

    10xn - ten numerics


    Kind regards,

    Jitka
