PrePaid Date

Required.

Specify the prepaid date for this check reversal transaction. Initially defaults the last day of the reversal batch month (e.g., if batch month is 04/XX, prepaid date will default as 04/30/XX). You may override this default; however, if you change to a date outside the batch month, a warning is displayed indicating that the prepaid date is not in the same month as the batch month. Entry will be allowed, but results in the Actual Date (in CMDT) differing from the GL Month (in GLDT).

Enabled only if the payment method is N-Viewpoint ePayment or E-EFT.

Create Open Transaction(s) in Batch Month

The Create Open Transaction(s) in Batch Month check box on the AP Prior Mth Payment Reversal form.

Select this check box to have the system automatically create new open transactions (in the current batch month) matching the previously paid entries. Once you post the batch (via this form or the AP Transaction Entry form), the transactions become available for payment like any other expense transaction.

Leave this check box unselected if you want to reverse the original payment, but do not want to set up new transactions.

Note: If you leave this check box unselected, when you click the Update button, the system displays a warning that a reversal batch will be created without open transactions. If you want open transactions created, select No to cancel the update, select the check box, and then click Update again. Only select Yes if you want to proceed with creating the reversal batch without open transactions.
