If you want all of your employees to have the same check date, regardless of their employee status (Terminated, Inactive, Deceased, or Active), you must first open the Electronic File Table Maintenance screen and select the check date (PR.EHDATE (1)) and then set the Period field to Current.

Then in the Build Electronic Data File screen you need to set the ‘to’ and ‘from’ check dates equal to each other (and corresponding to the current check period). After you run the build, any employees with an "outdated" check date will be updated to the current check period and will appear in the electronic file you create or print.
