Instead of creating one ABA file i created 2, i need to merge these two ABA files before i upload to the Bank.
is there a way to do this in Reckon accounts hosted?
have already tried editing the created ABA files.

Hi Robin

I always think it is better not to play around with ABA files once created.

Why do you need to merge them and why can't you simply upload both files and pay both files separately ?

Hi Graham,

I am able to upload the files individually and pay them separately which it appears i will be doing as there is no other option.

Thank you for your help.

I have never done this but seem to remember being told that if you delete the wages payments and redo them you will be able to recreate the aba file. But I guess it depends on how much work to redo the pays

Hi Kris

Yes that is correct but without redoing the wages, just the payment.

Cheers

It is possible to edit the ABA files and have them work successfully but there are a few tricks to it and some experience needed... Agree with Graham - best not to play with them if you don't know what you are reading - but also not the end of the world if they have to be paid as 2 separate amounts.
