      Hi,

      I was wondering if there is a way to regenerate a eft file. For example if we decide to omit a invoice that was included in a batch, can we regenerate the eft file?

      One solution I can think of involves voiding the specific payment and modifying the eft file manually.

      The other solution would be to simply void all the transactions in a batch and then generate a new EFT file. My main concern with this solution is that the remittances would have already been sent out.

      Are there any other solutions?

      Thanks

      I am sad to say there is no way to edit an EFT batch in GP once you have processed it to generate the EFT file. We have had this situation a few times. You will have to void the batch then reprocess with the corrected data. 8-(

      Also, it isn’t possible to edit the EFT file unless you are willing to go through and count every character then do a special computation to create the digital code that the computer creates for the bank’s system to translate. I tried that option out during testing. It is the banking system’s way to help stop fraud. 😎  

      Thanks
