To enter the Addenda format, you will need to open a Profile--whether a governmental agency or Vendor profile--the processes are identical. For brevity, we will assume tax payments for agencies.
--Create a profile from the Profile tab or
--Open an existing Profile from the main menu
Edit/Add > Profiles - TXP Gov't Agencies > Edit/Listing > select the profile, and click 'Edit Record' on the sub-menu.
Click on the tab 'Addenda Records - Child Support, Invoices and Tax Payments (TXP)', and then check the check-box to activate this feature.
Static text vs. Dynamic text in the Addenda record
Review the requirements of your vendor or governmental agency and decide what is static text and what text changes on each transaction.
For example, the format may call for TXP*tax payer ID*Amount\
If you are only paying the agency on behalf of one taxpayer, the taxpayer ID is static. In this example, everything prior to the amount would be static.
a. Enter static text
If your taxpayer ID is 651122334, you would type in the static part of the addenda line, which (so far) would look like:
b. Add tags for dynamic text
As the amount will vary on each transaction, insert the tag (including the brackets) for Amount:
Note: The brackets are required, although the tag itself is case-insensitive.
c. What not to enter
ACH Universal will automatically take care of the leading '705', as well as any spaces and trace numbers following the Addenda record.
