Problem / Description:
When going into the Check Printing and Electronic Payment screen for a bank code that does not transmit ACH (not pre-authorized) and select “BOTH” (check and electronic) and immediately receive
“The bank code ‘N’ is not approved for electronic payment. You must setup this bank code for electronic payment in ACH Interface Maintenance or select another bank code.
This situation can arise because the customer has multiple bank accounts – some of which are used for ACH and others for pure check writing (no ACH). Vendors can be setup to have ACH through one bank account and checks through another. The solution occurs during the invoice payment selection (See below).
During invoice payment selection you need to check off the “Pay Electronic Payment Vendors by Check”
When you go intoCheck Printing and Electronic Payment to print the checks be sure to select “CHECKS” when asked how you want to pay. Don’t select “ACH” or “BOTH” or you’ll get the error message if the bank account is not approved for ACH.
