ACH Prenote processing in AP release 9.


Brief Summary
Both EFT and ACH are paperless payment formats. Both require that you create
an electronic file that contains the necessary bank or clearinghouse information.
The electronic layout and data requirements for EFT and ACH payments are set
up for PeopleSoft Payables when you set up banks and counterparties.
Note. Before sending EFT or ACH payments, you can establish a prenote test to
verify that the data is received in the correct format

PeopleSoft provides the availability of prenote verification for EFT and ACH
payments. Your bank can verify the accuracy of the electronic payment data (for

the actual transaction occurs. Prenotes are available for PPD, CCD+, and CTX
payment formats.

You can use either the Pay Cycle Manager or the PeopleSoft Financial Gateway
for formatting the prenote output file to the bank. If you generate the output
file using pay cycle, there is no prenote error notification from the bank.
If you generate the output file using PeopleSoft Financial Gateway, you receive a
prenote error notification from the bank, if any error exists. PeopleSoft Financial
Gateway creates a prenote error message and sends it to PeopleSoft Payables.
PeopleSoft Payables:
1. Inserts the prenote error to the Pay Cycle Error table
2. Updates the prenote status in the Vendor Pay table (VENDOR_PAY) from
P (pending) to R (rejected).
3. Sends an email notification to the user.
This function requires that you specify a user ID on the Payment Selection
Criteria - Preferences page as well as defining a valid email address on the
