Based on old payroll incidents, to properly document payroll entries in which there were no earnings, but other activities which created a zero net record, the payroll system creates a "check" with no check number.  The payroll reconciliation processes consider manual checks, reversals and other types of records (other than legitimate checks) which wouldn't get passed to the banking institution, but which should be marked as cashed so there are no outstanding check records of any sort.  

In very general terms, the purpose of running PAY015A is to match the information provided by the financial institution to the company's check output which does include the zero check numbers. Allowing this, the result should be the outstanding checks not yet cashed. It is my understanding that PAY015A creates a file with these outstanding items which includes the 'zero' check numbers as the financial institutions would never submit these as cleared items. PAY015B effectively reports these unmatched items as captured by PAY015A.

Customer would like to see zero net checks excluded from a reconciliation process.
