SFTP Member Migration Project - Banking Filename Update

Report date

Circular No.

LCH Circular No 3813


22nd November 2016


All LCH Ltd Clearing Members


Dear Member,

Further to previous Circular 3785 related the SFTP Member Migration project, we would like to clarify both the .pdf and .txt Banking filename convention.

As per page 13 of the Banking Reporting Reference guide, the .pdf and .txt Banking filenames will be formatted as  follows (using REP00019 as an example):

  • P-PBNK-XXX-YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS_REP00019 - Overnight Cover Distribution.PDF
  • P-PBNK-XXX-YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS_REP00019 - Overnight Cover Distribution_ 1.TXT

Please note however that the ‘HHMMSS’ will be populated with ‘000000’. Members that wish to know the time the report was published can use the ‘Last Modified’ column in the Portal or the timestamp provided in each Banking report.

We recommend all members ignore the all control character in the filename until the first underscore (_) to ensure any future changes to the control section will not impact members.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your relationship manager or email: Memberreporting.Programme@lch.com
