    Exporting Addresses to a CSV File in CommerzBank

    Understanding the Address Book Ownership

    The address book, which you can export to a CSV file, is owned by the EBICS customer of the primary Commerzbank access. This means that the management of the address book, including exporting it, is a privilege designated to the customer holding the primary access rights.

    Managing the Address Book

    All users associated with the EBICS customer have the ability to manage the address book. This includes exporting the address book to a CSV file, allowing for easy sharing and updating of address information among all users of the customer.

    Using CommerzBank Templates for Export

    CommerzBank provides convenient Excel and CSV templates for the purpose of importing addresses. These templates can also be used to ensure that the exported CSV file adheres to the required format, facilitating a smooth import process later on.

    CSV File Requirements

    When exporting the address book to a CSV file, it is crucial to ensure that the file is UTF-8 encoded. This encoding standard must be followed to maintain compatibility with the CommerzBank system and to avoid any potential issues during the import process of new addresses.
