R12: Positive Pay Output Files are Missing for Successfully Completed IBY_FD_POS_PAY_FORMAT Requests? (Doc ID 1183114.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Payments - Version: 12.0.0 and later   [Release: 12.0 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The IBY_FD_POS_PAY_FORMAT concurrent requests complete successfully. The log files show that the process succeeded in selecting checks and then generating the text-formatted output rows.  However, there is no actual output file available to the user.
A User who is trying to View Output might see an unexpected message like: "File doesn't begin with '%PDF-'".
Why is that happening? 
And what needs to be done so that the user can access the Positive Pay File output files in order to send them to the bank?
