I have created an ABA Clearing Account to generate ABA Files, however, I am getting an error message that 'Another bank account with the same bank details already exists'  We are also using the Core Banking module so I'm not sure what the work around/solution is for this.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

Based on the information provided above it appears you have two accounts. In both accounts you have placed the same BSB and account number and are trying to link the bank feed to an account.

What account did you want to get the feed? I am assuming it is the bank account and not the clearing account. If this is the case, try adding a leading 0 to the account number of the clearing account (for example Account number = 987654321, change to 0987654321). This will still keep the number correct while allowing you to link the feed to the bank account.

In Reckon One you cant link the bank feed to more than one account, so Reckon One does a check to ensure the bank accounts are unique to link the feeds. This is the reason for this message.

Regards
Dean

Thanks so much Dean, yes two accounts both with the same account details, but only one is linked to the bank feed.  The other is strictly used for producing and clearing ABA files.  If I add a 0 to the clearing account number will it cause a problem with identifying the account when ABA files are created and loaded to the bank?
