Release Note Details

Most BPay References are stored as ordinary numbers. However the Customer References Number (CRN) may require different numbers of leading zeroes (e.g. "00123456"). This change gives you the ability to enter correct number of leading zeros for the CRN.

Setup Details

If BPay A/P payment files from Pulse have never been used to import into your online banking software please contact Pulse to setup and ensure your bank's interface file format is supported.



Test Plan (If Required)

Test Description

BPay customer reference (CRN) may include leading zeroes so set up a few vendors with different values of leading zeros. Ensure that the CRN can only contain digits and be a maximum of 19 characters.

Enter invoices into the system for these vendor and also enter a few invoice for the Sundry Vendor selecting them to be paid by BPay. Post the invoices so that they are waiting for payment.
