Each bank has a limit to how many Bpays can be processed in one batch. The program now lists this on the Bpay report and allows another batch to be made.
The example below shows that Commonwealth Bank has a limit of 200. The Bpay batch for 200 is a total of $32,389.59. It also shows there are still 241 BPay not processed.
Once you Print Report and Pay Creditors it will show the payments not made as "BPMax".
When ready to make the file it will also show there are more payments to be made. Example below 241 that will not be processed.
Once this file has been closed and uploaded to the bank you can go back into the pay creditors and make another payment.
It will continue to show how many items are still to be made example 40 Bpay that will not be processed.
Again once this has been made and uploaded to the bank go into pay creditors and make the final file Bpay batch.
