Symptoms

Sometimes an invoice gets paid in an AP check even though the invoice has an attached supplier bank account. That can happen for example when an invoice gets Validated with a Payment Method of Electronic and has as defaulted supplier bank account, and later that invoice gets changed to Payment Method Check prior to payment processing.

What would cause such AP checks to get formatted with the MICR row having values for Bank Account Number and Routing Transit Number taken from the attached supplier bank account instead of from the Internal bank account? Even though the xml data extract from the Format Payment Instructions concurrent process for the check(s) in question has been verified to contain correct data for both the Payee bank account and the Payer bank account?
