Define a Positive Pay Set

As the description implies, a Positive Pay Set is simply a collection of Positive Pay Applications grouped together for form a single transaction file. This is extremely useful for companies with multiple bank accounts with a single bank for which a single transimission not only streamlines operations, but also cuts the cost of fees paid to the bank for transmitting positive pay files.

Positive Pay Set Creation

The screen below illustrates the the interface to the Positive Pay Set created by selecting option 2 from the Positve Pay menu.

In the upper portion of the screen, communications configuration mirrors the previously defined Positive Pay Application. The bottom portion of the screen allows for one or more applications to be listed.

The resulting transmission file created from the form set extraction process generates check information in the same order as the positive pay entries were entered into the list itself.

Note that the Transmit Library/File defined for the set should not have the same name as that defined for the constituent applications. The Positive Pay Set will populate each constituent file and then copy all of the records to the Pay Set's consolidated transmission file.

At this point, however, the positive pay set has not been adapted to use FTP for transmission, and is limited to modem transmission.
