How to remove old Export E-Pay ACH records
Should it become necessary to delete a transaction in Export E-Pay/ACH (Direct Deposit) (Payroll > Utilities> Import/Export, it is essential that you proceed with CAUTION!! These items represent posted data, so deleting them requires voiding all checks and direct deposit items for the current payroll.
Before deleting or voiding anything, go to the System & Users tab and run the Backup routine,
saving the backup file to your hard drive as a precaution.
Be sure you understand why you are deleting an item. Typically it would be done if a payroll was voided
or there was some kind of test that had been run resulting in data that should not be transmitted to
the bank. Sometimes, the file was exported but never removed from the queue. Make sure to always click the Finish button when this process has been completed to ensure the transmitted items are removed from the queue. Normally once a direct deposit is committed and posted in the Process Payroll routine,
the transaction should go to the bank.
