PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Payables - Version 9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Pay Cycle skips the Check Reference numbers that has already been assigned to a Zero Dollar Check Payments which are created with “Suppress Zero Amount Check”  checked  in Payment Selection Criteria setup

Example
Last Ref Number used:  0000038757
Last PYMNT_ID used:  0004101026

When a Zero value Check is processed by  the Pay Cycle  with 'Suppress Zero Amount Check' checked , the Payment created is assigned with the PYMNT_ID as its Check Payment Reference i.e. 0004101027 instead of using the next Check Reference i.e. 0000038758. This is working as designed.

The subsequent Pay Cycles will keep assigning the Check References in the order for the successive Payments.  But, when this running Check Reference number reaches a stage that equals the Reference already assigned to the Zero Check Payment i.e. 0004101027, it will be skipped.

Since the Zero Value Check generated with 'Suppress Zero Amount Check'  will not be shared with Banks, customers would like to re-use those Payment References for the valid Payments.
