Generate EFT Prenote Files

If your bank requires a prenote transaction for new vendors, you can generate a prenote file to send to your bank.

Some banks require a prenote transaction for new vendors or account changes for existing vendors, before they can actively process EFTs. The prenote process allows the bank to validate the vendors’ bank accounts.
  1. In the AP Payment Posting form, select Tasks > Download EFTs.
    The AP EFT Download form appears.
  2. Enter information in the CM Account, CM Reference #, and Description fields.
  3. Select File > Audit Report to preview the information that will be downloaded to the text file (AP EFT Active Audit Report).
    You can also print this report after the download, but before you close the form.
  4. Click Download.
    One of two things occurs:
    • If you are not using the Secure File Path feature, the Save Export File As window displays and you must choose a location to save the file. You can opt to change the default filename.
    • If you are using the Secure File Path function, no Save As window appears as Vista saves your file directly to the location specified in the AP Company Parameters form.
  5. Send the file to your bank electronically.
