Mark,
Thank you so much for all your help! After I finish my month end closing next week, I'll take a look at this info and hopefully can soon make my employees happy! Especialy those that live out of state.
Barbara

I went through the same thing Barbara. I thought I had everything setup
and I created a test payroll and gave the file that Vantage creates to
our bank and they said it wasn't even close to ACH format. I called
support only to find out that you need to pay $1500 for a simple
conversion program.

Christopher G. from this group was nice enough to post their code for
the conversion and after a few hours of troubleshooting it has been
working seamlessly since.

The rest of the process went pretty well. You shouldn't need to make
any changes to the employee's other deductions.. .just add the direct
deposit as 100% of net and it should print a zero dollar check. Our
bank did a great job of troubleshooting the file layout with us.
Hopefully the changes I made will minimize that for you.

I uploaded the script to the Visual Basic folder in the Files area for
our group for anyone that is interested.

There are a few changes you will need to make:

Under ACH Constants you will need to enter your:

bank account number

bank name

company name

Tax ID number (without the dash)

Under ACH Individual Records you will need to change "DDCHK" and "DDSAV"
to whatever your deduction ID is.

We setup a directory that contained only this file and then saved the
file generated by Vantage into that directory and ran this script. A
file will be created in the same directory... something like
"MajorDD080530. ach". We then copy it to a USB drive and drop it off at
the bank. You will either need to bring a USB drive or CD to the bank
or setup special security if you are emailing it.

Mark,
Ok, I think I get it now, the help instructions wasn't very clear. No I
have not paid for the conversion program and until you mentioned it, I
didn't realize that I needed one. Any help and recommendations are most
appreciated!
Thank you
Barbara

Oops....one clarification. The direct deposit that is entered as 100%
should be "% Net" for the Rate Qualifier. That forces the system to
take all other deductions first.

We setup 2 direct deposit deductions.. .one for checking accounts and
one
for savings accounts. They are set at 100% so that any remaining
dollars, after 401k and other deductions, will go into their account.
If they are not participating in the direct deposit then nothing should
need to change from the way you run their check now.

If you haven't already paid for Epicor's conversion program I believe I
have everything you need to convert their file to one your bank can
read. I got it through this group and after a little tweaking it works
great.

Anyone have a simple explanation of how to do direct deposit for
employees? I have been reading the help provided in 8.03.05F and from
my understanding, I will need to set up a different deduction for those
that want direct deposit and those that do not, is this correct? If so,
how does the % calculated work for the 401k deduction? Will I need to
run a separate payroll for those who want direct deposit from those that
do not?
Thanks
