How can I change the attachment filename of an EFT remittance file?

We are running GP2015 and using EFT.  We now want to email the remittance forms.  We have it working in our test environment but the attachment filename is in the format "companyName"_EFT00000000123.pdf.  I would like to replace the companyName prefix with a fixed value; e.g. ABCD_EFT0000000123.pdf.

I've Googled my '$#%" off and haven't found anything on this topic.  Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so, where I go in GP to establish the filename for an EFT remittance?

 

Thanks,

 

Wes

  • Hi Wes,

    Congrats on getting EFT up and running in your test environment. In re: to the file name, could you please provide a screenshot of your Checkbook EFT Payables Options window. This form is used to collected the information concatenated to form the file name and will help in assessing your inquiry.

    Thanks,

    Nick
  • Wes, Open your Checkbook and choose EFT Bank. Open EFT Bank and choose Payables Options. This is where you define the Default output file names. Hope this helps. Robert

    Nick,

    Thanks, but there is nothing in that screen that references the remittance document or how it's named. There is for the EFT payment file that goes to the bank but that's not the file I'm referring to. I'm referring to the actual customer remittance form.

    Wes,

    Sorry for the missing understanding. I believe you are using word templates to generate the remittance advice. GP let's you have templates assigned to the vendor. Changing of the file name to a fixed value automatically is not available in core GP. You would have to look at a customization or a 3rd party solution.
