Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payment Management work center.
  2. Go to the Payment Monitor view.
  3. Show All Payments.
  4. Filter relevant Payer/Payee.
  5. Select relevant Document ID.
  6. Click relevant Outbound File ID.
  7. Click View All.
  8. Go to the Attachment tab.
  9. Open File.

The file shows: 622XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, while you expected 632 since this is a Savings Account.


This happens due to missing digit in the Account information on the Supplier Account.


To adjust this you need to add the Digit to the Account:

  1. Go to the Payables work center.
  2. Go to the Suppliers view.
  3. Open relevant Supplier Account.
  4. Go to Financial Data tab.
  5. Go to the Bank Data sub-tab.

You notice here that the Check Digit is empty.

The check digit determines whether this account is Checking or Savings, if there is no Digit the system will assume it is a Checking Account.

To configure the Account as a Savings Account you need to add '02' in the Check Digit, anything else will result in a Savings being selected.
