Access this screen by selecting Tool #1961: AP3: Process Accounts Payable Payments or Tool # 639: Print CU Checks (Shortcut:glchk).

This screen lists the payments that were vouched on the Organize Payments screen that are now ready to be processed via check or ACH payment.  

Do the Account to Account (A2A) limits entered in CU*BASE also apply to Accounts Payable payments made via ACH?

What date is used on a check processed by the CU*BASE Accounts Payable feature?

Exiting the Screen Without Making a Payment

Once you enter this screen certain files are adjusted.  To exit this screen you cannot use the up arrow nor the back up arrow.  You must use Done/Exit (F14) to exit the screen.  This will return the files to their previous position.

Deleting an Item

If the vouched item has not been paid, you can delete the vouched item by selecting it and then Delete.

Paying via Check

Checks which have not been printed will display “**” (two asterisks) in the Bank column. Once a check has been printed, this column shows the bank on which the check was drawn (which is configured in the device configuration).

Checks are sorted according to the vendor number or vendor name as configured on the Accounts Payable Workflow Controls screen.  

To process a single check, select the item and then Process Payment. Then use Done/Exit (F14).  If you wish to print all of the checks shown in the list on this screen, simply use Print These Checks (F9). Then use Done/Exit (F14).  

Depending on the configuration of your check printer, checks will immediately begin printing, or you may be prompted to enter a check number before the first check will print. (If a check has more than 10 separate G/L debits (expenses), the system will print multiple checks.)  The checks will print in the order they are displayed on the screen.  

Paying via ACH

ACH items which have not been processed will display with "***" (three asterisks) in the Bank column.  

To process a single ACH Item, select the item and then Process Payment. Then use Done/Exit (F14). If you wish to print all ACH items shown on this screen, simply use Pay These ACH (F10). Then use Done/Exit (F14) to exit the screen and move to the Home Page.

Once the ACH items have been paid, the Bank field will be blank   At this point no changes can be made to the item. Paid ACH items will appear on the PACXTB report as regular ACH items.  They will appear on the report with a SEC code of "CCD."  These items are assigned the sequence number from the A2ATRANS record for tracking purposes.  The vendor number will be captured in the A2ATrans record in the Base Account Number field.
