Adding 997 Ack status report on SPE which covers all status along with ExtraInfo1 and ExtraInfo2 data fields

As per the existing BPN Reporting we have multiple options to pull reports including the Externalinfo1, Externainfo2 fields reports which covers the Ackstatus of the outbound files including the success, failures and overdue.

I have attached a screenshot which covers the current BPN default reporting option available for the customers, it covers successful transactions in most of the reports.

I can see as per the existing SPE Reports available under the Report type Acknowledgements we have two sub order types only Negative and the Overdue, but we do not have overall a report which covers even the successful Ack status of the 997s.

If it possible, we would like to have a single outbound 997 Ack status report which captures all the status of the 997 including the successful Ack statuses for particular period of time.

Also, we are expecting to include the fields ExteraInfo1 and ExtraInfo2 data in the outbound Ack status reports as they may contain the essential data which are relevant for customers. For example, Externalifo1 field can contain the IDOC numbers or ship to numbers. This Externainfo1 and Externalinfo2 data will help the customers to identify the transactions on their ERPs very easily if we are able to send these reports. Currently we are sending the Reference number which is from the EDI data but Externalinfo1 or Externalinfo2 can contain the data elements from the application file.

As SPE reports are more advanced than BPN reporting in terms of scheduling and the delivery format of the files, we would like to set this outbound Ackstatus reports on the SPE.
