Payment Authorisations

Payment Authorisations

Payment Authorisations

In MIMS 4.1:
The Acc/Payable user ref manual mentions 3 possible types of cheque runs:
                 Cheque Run Type
Cheque print           C
EFT                    E
Payment Authorisation  A

I was not able to locate any further reference to
online or batch processes involved with the processing of
Payment Authorisations.
Can anyone supply additional info? What is the equivalent of MSR283 (Cheque Print) for Payment Authorisations?

The background to this question is that we are looking at replacing on-site printing of cheques with an outsourced process, where we send a file to the bank, which will print bank cheques and mail them to suppliers. The difference to MSR283 is that the file needs to include the cheque numbers. I am wandering if a "paymnet authorisation" type of run is the answer to this issue.

RE: Payment Authorisations

We had a custom program written by Mincom to address this (ran283)  Written by Yacaman.  The narative is:

      **  Cheque Print Interface to deliver payment data to the bank.
      **  This program performs all the necessary steps to create the
      **  cheque print information for the bank. The originating process
      **  is MSB260. Once a cheque run is created, this program will
      **  receive the cheque run number, bank and branch code from MSB260.
      **  Then, this program will : (1)Update the payment information for
      **  the run, (2)assign cheque numbers (MSF281) to the invoices,
      **  (3) update the payment control file (MSF280) information, and
      **  (4) create the ASCII files to be delivered to the bank. The
      **  definition for the contents of the ASCII files is found in the
      **  copyfiles : "rat28d.cpy" and rat28s.cpy". The cheque numbers are
      **  set up to be maintained as reference codes in MSF071. The ref-code
      **  is "CHK".
      **  A verification is made for MSF280-RC-PMT-METH-IND for the CHEQUE-
      **  RUN-ID. If the payment method indicator is "E" (EFTS), then this
      **  program will NOT process the validated cheque-run-id passed in the
      **  parameters from MSB260.

RE: Payment Authorisations

Thanks for the info, Glen.
I was not able to get more info about Pay Auth, it looks like a loose end/unfinished business.
We have written a custom RDL to create the bank file, the rest we implemented using existing MIMS components: MSB260 MSO285 and MSB289.
We work off a normal cheque run, assign cheque numbers with MSO285, then run our custom RDL to create the bank file, then we update invoices as paid.
