By: | Category: Document Management

The following tips for Positive Pay and Paperless Office apply to Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Version 4.4 and above. We will show you how to exclude wire transfers from the Positive Pay Export File and how to move PDF files in Paperless Office.

Exclude Wire Transfers From The Positive Pay Export File

All wire transfer check numbers begin with W; this allows you to exclude them from the Positive Pay Export when you set the check numbers to export in Positive Pay Export Processing. You can use either of the two following methods:

  • Use range and enter the lowest to the highest check number you want to export
  • Use range and set it to 000000 to 999999

Sending Voided Checks Without A Negative Sign In Positive Pay Export
Voided check amounts may appear with a negative sign in the Positive Pay Export file. To remove the negative sign, use the following settings in the Define Formatting Information for the Detail Record:

  • Field Description = Amount
  • Start, End, Length = Defined by the bank
  • Justification = Right
  • Zero Fill = Check box
  • Implied Decimal = Check box

Using the Zero Fill option will eliminate the negative sign. Verify with your financial institution that the Zero Fill option will be accepted.
