It is possible to specify that the End of Period process should create a CSV file, that will then be imported to the Users Finance System, (Note: software or third party).
It will be necessary to create a Transfer Template. This is create via Payroll > Definitions > Module Setup > Transfer Templates. The details required are as follows:
- Transfer Template Name – User Defined
- Description – User Defined
- Type – Pre-Defined
- Data – This field has no effect
- Function – PAYH0008
- Filename – This is the full path and file name of the CSV file that is to be created
- Invoke – Blank
In order to activate the change, it will be necessary to access the live Payroll Template via Payroll > Definitions > General, and amend the field Export Template so that it refers to the template being created.
Then, when a Period End is run for the above Payroll Template, instead of the G/L being updated dynamically, a CSV file will be created which can be imported to another finance system.
