You use automatic payments to group vouchers and produce multiple payments in a single payment run.

Automatic payment processing enables you to manage your payments efficiently and take advantage of favorable discount terms whenever possible. Use automatic payment processing to pay vouchers during your usual payment cycle.

After you process your vouchers, you can prepare to write your payments. Before you write payments, you must create payment groups to organize vouchers that can be paid together. For example, you can organize vouchers by bank account and payment instrument in separate groups. Then, the vouchers can be paid with the proper check stock. You use the payment groups when you review and write payments.

The Create Payment Control Groups program is a batch process that you run once for each payment cycle.

When you create payment groups, the system populates these temporary tables:

Because the system stores the payment group information in temporary work tables, you can revise payment groups, split payments, revise value dates, and undo payment groups without affecting the Accounts Payable Matching Document (F0413) table and the Accounts Payable Matching Document Detail (F0414) table.


This document is intended for users who are creating payments through the Automatic Payment Process.
