Oracle R12 Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Payments Setups and Process

Pre-requisites:
Download BI Publisher Template Builder for Word version 10.1.3.4.1 from download.oracle.com

Basic requirements to start creating EFTs are to have an eText file (Template) and an XML file (data definition).

There are 2 ways that you can have an eText Template file:
o Create your own, or
o (Recommended) Download standard oracle Template
Nav : Payables Manager
à Setup à Payment à Payment Administrator à Formats à XML Publisher Format Templates à IBYDE_N_US_en.rtf
Query and download the RTF file
‘US NACHA CCD Format’ : IBYDE_N_US_en.rtf

à Go to Metalink and Check Oracle Note 457539.1. This note says that the Package IBY_FD_EXTRACT_EXT_PUB controls the XML extract used in check/EFT printing. The supplied version can be found in $IBY_TOP/patch/115/sql/ibyfdxeb.pls

à Better way is to follow the instructions in Doc ID: 465389.1 R12 Create Or Modify A Payment Format Using XML Builder.

As part of the setup we need to :
1. Create template definition under existing data definition and attach the created template.
2. Create payment format for the template.
3. Create payment process profile.
4. How to Create Template for Request Submission
5. Get the XML Data File
6. Run the eText Template from Desktop
7. Cancelling the (Void) Payments and Running the PPR
8. Submit Single Payment Process Request with Create Electronic Payment Instruction
9. Metalink Ids

1. Create template definition under existing data definition and attach the created template.

Click Apply

4. How to Create Template for Request Submission
Note: All of the fields in this process are the same as in 'Submit Single Request'. Enter any fields that you repeat for request submission. In the above example, usually leave the Payee field blank if you want to run for separate vendors every time. Once the template has been created and saved, you may enter the template name in the field 'Use Template' in the example above.
There are several other options which I haven't explored yet. I will add more once I get to try them out.

Nav : Payables Manager --> Payment Manager --> Create Template
Name : XX_APPS88_EFT
Field
Value
Name
: XX_APPS88_EFT

Scheduled Payment Selection Criteria:
The Scheduled Payment Selection Criteria tab allows you to specify invoice selection criteria for the “AutoSelect” process to use when it selects eligible invoices/memos for the batch, such as

The Payment Attributes tab allows you to specify how the batch will be paid, including:
• what Payment Date you want to see on the payments (required)
• which internal bank account you want to pay from (optional)
• which set of Payment Documents you want to use (optional)
• which Payment Process Profile you want to use (will default if Payment Documents are specified)
• which Payment Exchange Rate Type you want to use (required)
• other items related to financial methods of paying this batch

Field
Value
Bank Account
: BofA-204
Payment Process Profile
: XX_APPS88_EFT
Payment Exchange Rate Type
: Corporate


The Processing tab allows you to specify features you want to use during the PPR process, and how they should work:
Maximize Credits: check this if you want the system to apply any available memos up to the point where the payment for the supplier will be zero (and you have done setups to allow for zero payments)
Stop Process for Review After Scheduled Payment Selection: check this if you want to stop the PPR process after the initial batch of eligible invoices/memos has been selected so you can review the batch and modify the batch, if needed
Calculate Payment Withholding and Interest During the Scheduled Payment Selection: check this if interest and/or WH tax was not previously calculated (at the time of invoice validation). If checked, the system will calculate it during the Build process
Stop Process for Review After Creation of Proposed Payments: check this if you want to stop the PPR process after the proposed payments have been created so you can review the proposed payments, and modify the payments, if needed
Create Payment Instructions: select whether you want the system to automatically kick off the Create Payment Instructions program automatically, or if you would prefer to kick off the program manually from the SRS form

The Validation Failure Results tab allows you to specify what should happen if a Document (an invoice/memo) or a Payment fails a pre-defined (or user-defined) Validation:
If a DOCUMENT fails a validation, the system should:
• Reject only those document(s) that failed, and proceed with the rest
• Reject all of the supplier’s documents even if only one of their documents fails validation
• Reject all documents selected for the PPR if ANY document in the batch fails validation
• Stop the process for a review of the failed document(s)

If a PAYMENT fails validation, the system should:
• Reject only those payment(s) that failed, and proceed with the rest
• Reject all of the supplier’s payments even if only one of their payments fails validation
• Reject all payments selected for the PPR if ANY payment in the batch fails validation
• Stop the process for a review of the failed payment(s)

5.To Get the XML Data File
Run the entire process and get the xml data from log file, With the XML data you can change your template Or there is one more way to get the XML, In the formats change xml publisher template name to “Extract Identity” and run the process, get the xml data from output.

Payables Manager à Setup à Payment à Payment Administrator à Formats à Formats
Query with format name(XX_APPS88_EFT) and change the XML Publisher Template value to “Extract Identity”.

6. Run the eText Template from Desktop
We can’t run the etext template from add-ins, we can only run the template with “Template Viewer”

All Programs à Oracle BI Publisher Desktop à Template Viewer à

Select the template and xml file from the location and change the output type to eText

Then click on Start Processing
