Goal

What is the difference between the "Remit-To Account" number and the bank account number on a payment?

For example:  

A particular payment in the Payment Workbench (APXPAWKB form) has a "Remit-To" Account number which is masked and displays "XXXXXX0023"; however, when doing a HELP --> Diagnostics --> Examine and selecting BANK_ACCOUNT_NUM as the field, the value displayed is: 1014308545 (obviously different than the shown masked account)

Why are these numbers not reflecting the same bank account number?
