RE: How to use the Electronic Bank Payments Bundle to pad the end of a NACHA file?
For a NACHA file, the number of records must be divisible by 10. The end of your file must be padded with 9’s to make it divisible by 10. Example: if the total number of records in your file was 98, you would create 2 records at the end of the with 9’s in position 01-94.
Is there a way to set the electronic bank payments bundle to do this for you automatically?
Here’s what I found in the helpfile in NetSuite for the company bank details setup:
Complete the fields on the DD Template Details subtab.
|Immediate Origin||Enter your company’s 10-digit number assigned by the bank.|
|Routing Number||Enter the bank’s transit routing number.|
|Account Number||Enter your company’s bank account number.|
|Immediate Destination Name||Enter the name of the bank’s site where the payment will be processed.|
|Create Balanced Files||Check this box to include a contra record line in the payment file to create a balanced file. Check whether your bank requires this for EFT transactions.|
|Company ID||Enter your company’s tax Id or the company number assigned by your bank.|
|Bank Account Type||Select Checking or Savings to indicate the bank account type.|
|Add Pad Blocks||Check this box to add lines with “9” characters at the end of the payment file when the total number of records is not a multiple of 10. Check whether your bank requires this option for EFT transactions.|
