First configure Bank Positive Pay as if you were only transmitting one account - that means entering the Bank Express Code, entering transmission settings, etc...
Perform at least one full test of importing and file creation.
The process for multiple origination account file creation is essentially the same as for a single file creation.
The differences are:
--the 'Origination Field' will be substituted as the output field (instead of 'bank account number').
--you'll need to specify which account each transaction is associated with. How you perform this, will depend on your data. We provide options below.
We also recommend that you create a new account to work in with Bank Positive Pay, as each transaction will need to be associated with an account.
I. Setup the transmission file format (output)
The steps below will change the field
From: Bank Account Number
To: Origination Account
From the main Ribbon Bar > Settings > Transmission Options > Transmission File Format (data) tab > Detail Records.
The Record Detail window will be displayed.
1. Locate the 'Bank Account Number' field - and select it.
2. Change the selection in the drop down selector to Origination Account.
Save your changes.
Select No - and close the pop-up windows.
Skip this section unless you have headers/footers (rare)
a. Enter the header format using the 'Header - Top' as a guide. Note: Substitute 'Origination Account' for 'Bank_Account' in the Batch Header.
b. Switch back to 'Header - Top' and delete the mapping template. Click 'Done'.
Click on 'File Footer'. Change the drop down selection box from 'Footer - Bottom' to 'Batch Footer'.
c. Enter the footer format using the 'Footer - Last Line' as a guide. Note: Substitute 'Origination Account' for 'Bank_Account' in the Batch Footer.
d. Switch back to 'Footer - Last Line' and delete the mapping template. Click 'Done'.
Note: You can have any combination of headers and footers, as specified by your bank.
