BOA Positive Pay Format

Posted on by 3,476


Although Business Central comes preconfigured with a Positive Pay export file for Bank of America (BOA), an end user says that the format is not correct as far as the bank branch that he does business with is concerned.

He says that the following changes need to be made:

  1. All dates in the file need to be formatted as MM/DD/YYYY (including the /). Currently they are in the YYYYMMDD format.
  2. Type codes which are the 13th character over need to be “I” for issues and “C” for cancellations. They currently are O and V in the existing report.
  3. The footer line should be removed.

Can this be easily changed for the BOA format in Business Central?

    I figured this out.

    I simply removed the footer inside the Data Exchange Definitions window.

    I used the following as the date format: <Month,2>/<Day,2>/<Year4>

    And, I used Transformation Rules to replace the characters.
