Hi, I have tried to pay a large payroll (51 employees) as one batch but MYOB won't allow me to print the cover sheet before I create the Bank .aba file.
It states too many transactions and so I have to split my payroll payments to employees in 2 lots. Is there a way to allow MYOB to process it as one batch?
Our bank has no restrictions on the number of payments in a batch as I have been paying up to 80 transactions through our previous pay system.
I haven't attempted to raise the Bank .aba file as one lot in case it doesn't collate all the payments and then I would have to manually add them when it got to the bank.
Hoping you can help. Karenvl

Welcome to the Community Forum @Karenvl, we hope you find it beneficial for your MYOB queries.
Sorry to hear of the inconveniences you are experiencing with creating the .ABA file. Since the new version, the Product Development team have put a limit of transactions in the program. This is because some banks have a limit so they have gone for the lowest common denominator. At this stage they recommend 40 transactions at a time when creating a .ABA file.
We apologize if this disrupts your current daily processing and appreciate your feedback as it will be passed on to the Product Development team.
Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you have any other questions.
I hope the next upgrade will allow users to determine the maximum transactions they can create in a batch. It does make it more time consuming splitting batches.
Thanks for your reply and providing more feedback.
We appreciate you taking your time to post on the forum again. I understand where you are coming from in regards to at least implementing a filter option for the maximum transactions. This would be a much more useful and practical feature when creating an .ABA file for all users.
As urged before, please do not hesitate to contact us again if you have any other queries.
