I need to be able to raise an aba file for the supplier payments that i can give to my CFO to upload to the bank. However, i do not want these payments to be processed in the system. This will save me deleting the payments if he does not pay them.

Thats completely backwards. If he isnt going to pay them, dont create the file. Problem solved.

Hi Sancia,

have a look at this it can also take money from customers if they have approved direct debits. Nice little tool, I have been using for quite a few years.

Hi Sancia  Why not print out the unpaid bills report and give that to your CEO. He can tick the amounts he wants to pay and then you can create an ABA file. My thoughts are you are wanting to do something the wrong way around.
