ECM: Payment Batch Grouping Is Not Working As Described In PeopleBooks (Doc ID 2331062.1)

Last updated on JULY 27, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Cash Management - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When creating ACH payments from AP, using CCD+ NACHA delivered layout with delivered Payment Grouping Rule “Bank”, the payments are not being grouped as they should be.

The ACH payments are being settled via the Financial Gateway, and the PMT_DISPATCH App Engine is creating the payment file(s).  Payments originating from multiple business units, from the same bank and bank account, are being processed.  The “Bank” Payment File Grouping Rules define that payment from the same “BANK_CD” and “BANK_SETID” should be grouped into a single file.

The Payment Batch Grouping Rules further define that payments should be grouped that have similar “AMOUNT_CURRENCY_CD”, “BANK_ACCT_KEY”, “BUSINESS_UNIT”, and “PYMNT_DT”.

It is expected that within the payment file, payments belonging to a Business Unit would be grouped together under a unique Batch Header Record (also known as the Record Type Code “5” line in the payment file). However, this is not what is happening. Payments from multiple Business Units are being grouped together in the same Batch Header Record, and the Company Name is being pulled from the AP Business Unit description field for the first BU in the group.
