Payroll is not set for the auto settle line function in ACH file

TechKnowledge Content


We have decided to start using the auto settle line feature.We checked the box in Setup-Payroll-Direct Deposit-ACH Fields. Now when trying to process payroll, it is printing checks instead of doing direct deposit and we get the following error message:

Payroll is not set for the auto settle line function.


We have found that sometimes setting up the bank ID information in the Check Maintenance window (Cards-Financial-Checkbook) does not always link to the Payroll Setup window.  Follow the instructions below to make sure the information is linked.

  1. Go to the Payroll Setup window (Tools-Setup-Payroll-Payroll) and verify that a checkbook ID is selected for both the computer and manual defaults.

  2. Then click on the computer link to open the Checkbook Maintenance window.

  3. In the Checkbook Maintenance window, click Bank ID. This will bring you into the Bank Maintenance window.

  4. Make sure that the Bank ID, Name, transit number, and DD transit number are filled in.

  5. Also in the Checkbook Maintenance window, click on the Direct Deposit button in the lower right and complete all the fields. Click OK to close the window.

  6. Click Save and exit out of the Checkbook Maintenance window.

  7. Go to Tools-Setup-Payroll-Direct Deposit and click the ACH fields. In this window make sure that all fields, including the three name fields, are filled in. Make sure the checkbox for Include Auto-Settle-Line is marked.
