Dtaus

DTAUS is a format for German bank transfers and is short for “Datenträgeraustausch”. The format itself totally sucks because it was established in the last century, to be used on floppy disks. Still almost all German banks use it(they only seem innovative at robbing), and it is therefore supported in common banking programs too.

This gem saves you all the trouble when generating dtaus-text.

Install

gem install king_dtaus

Features

  • create lastschrift

  • create gutschrift

Example

#create a new dtaus object
dta = KingDta::Dtaus.new('LK')
# set sender account
dta.account = KingDta::Account.new( "bank_account_number", "bank_number", "bank_owner")
# the following should be done in a loop to add multiple bookings
# create receiving account
rec_acnt = KingDta::Account.new( "bank_account_number", "bank_number", "bank_owner" )
# create booking
booking = KingDta::Booking.new(rec_acnt, 100.00 )
# set booking text if you want to
booking.text = "Thanks for your purchase"
# add booking
dta.add( booking )
# end loop

# create datausstring and do with it whatever fits your workflow
my_str = dta.create

also make sure to read the specs
