Auto-Reconcile

The district must first create an initialization file in Utilities/Automatic Payment Reconciliation option,  that will define all the data that is to be extracted and placed on the sequential file to be sent to the bank. This initialization file will also define all data that is returned from the bank to be reconciled by the district.

The File Format must be equal to one of the following:

  •  CSV - Indicating comma separated delimited file
  •  Fixed Length - All information is formatted with either valid data or spaces. Fixed Length fields are filled with spaces to a specified width. Each field has an offset from the start of the line, and a length in number of characters.
    • Example:
      • SMITH, TODD                        10004A 12000.00 155 ESTELLINE RD.
      • 123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890
        • The start of the Name field is at position 1 and the length is 24. The Number field starts at position 25 and its length is 6. Notice how the name starts at character position 1, and there is room for a long name, although not all of the space is used with this one. The length of the name field is 24 characters.  Then the account number starts at character position 25 in the file, and is 6 characters wide.  When you import Fixed Length files, you will need to know the starting position and width of every field you want to import.

The Automatic Payment Reconciliation file can include these data fields to be extracted and imported, the starting position of the data within each record, the field length, picture, and field type as shown below:

Field Types options -

  • Amount
  • Bank Account
  • Check Date
