- Click Cards, point to Financial, and then click EFT File Format to open the EFT File Format Maintenace window.
- Select the EFT Format ID.
- In the EFT File Format Maintenance window, review the Add Pad Blocks section. If this check box is marked, then the three supporting lines underneath should also have a value defined in each field. Refer to the options below to resolve this problem:
- Option 1
If the bank does not require the file to be padded, unmark the checkbox next to Add Pad Blocks to disable this feature.
- Option 2
If the bank requires pad blocks to be used, refer to the bank's Requirement documentation to determine the required value to enter in the Pad Character, Number of Pad Chars, and Pad Lines in Multiple Of fields.
As an example, consider the following scenario: The bank requires the file to be 94 characters wide, and padded with the number "9" with a block count of 10. For this specific scenario, enter the following information in these fields:
- Pad Character: 9
- Number of Pad Chars: 94
- Pad Lines in Multiple of: 10
- Option 1
- To remove EFT batches that are still listed in the Generate EFT window, generate a new EFT file with those batches as usual to have the system clear them from the window. Then delete the new EFT file that was created. Do not send the new EFT file to the bank again.
For example, assume the bank requires the file to be padded in blocks of 10 rows. Below are examples of how the Pad Blocking will work:
- If your EFT file has 22 rows, GP will add 8 dummy row to the end of the EFT file to make it an even 30 rows.
- If your EFT file has 29 rows, GP will add 1 dummy row to the end of the EFT file to make it an even 30 rows.
- If your EFT file has 41 rows, GP will add 9 dummy row to the end of the EFT file to make it an even 50 rows.
- If your EFT file already has an even 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, etc. rows, GP will not add any dummy rows to the EFT file.
