3 ACH Import Overview

4 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 4 Business Banking ACH Import webcast What is Import ACH Data? What is it? Import ACH Data allows Business Banking users to save time adding and managing ACH participants. The business can import a file of participants versus manually entering participant data. Who are the best prospects for this import feature? Creating the map will take some time, so businesses with a large number of participants are likely to be the ones that use import. Also, a business whose accounting software does not create the Standard ACH file is able to use the Import function by importing text files in either a Delimited or Fixed Length format. What are the basic steps? The business creates a batch template. The business creates a map for the data that will be imported. The business imports a file. This action adds participants to the Business Banking ACH participant table and associates participants with the selected batch template. The business uses new batch template and associated participants to initiate ACH files.

5 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 5 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Import ACH Data The Import ACH Data feature supports three file formats: Standard NACHA file Text file in delimited format Text file in fixed column length format In order to access this screen, the user must have the Import ACH Data option selected by the Company Administrator in their User Maintenance profile.

6 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 6 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Import ACH Data Delimited and Fixed Length file formats require the user to create Import Maps. Creating a map allows the user to define the file layout so the Import process can identify: 1.the structure of the file being imported and 2.the location of data in the imported file in order to populate the participant table correctly within Business Banking. Note: the Standard ACH map type is pre-defined based on NACHA file format and does not require the user develop the map layout.

7 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 7 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Create Map Screen Upon clicking the Create New Delimited Map link or the Create New Fixed Map link, the screen below appears. The business user completes the Map Information section at the top (a delimited map shows here--fields differ for a fixed map). Then the user enters the fields to add, match, and/or update in the bottom half of the screen.

8 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 8 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Map Type The delimited and fixed maps allow the user to define how they would like the data applied, using the map types you see in the dropdown. What’s a map? A map tells Business Banking, from the information in the imported file, where to put it in the Participant table. For example, the person’s name needs to end up in the name field, not the amount field! So if the file has the Participant Name in the first field, you would enter “1” in the Position field here on the map.

9 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 9 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Map Type adds participant records to the participant table and assign these new records to an existing batch template (selected upon import). Add Only updates participant records that already exist in the participant table (rather than a specific batch template) with fields from the imported file based on matching criteria. Update Only The Add process adds participant records and assigns the new participants to the selected batch template. The Update process employs a user-selected matching criterion/criteria to locate participant records that exist in the selected batch template. The records are updated according to the update fields defined on the map and matched to the file imported. Add and Update – a combination of the Add Only and Update Only map types The Delete process uses matching criteria for the selected batch template. If the batch template contains participant records that are not in the imported file, those participants are disassociated, from the batch template. They are NOT deleted from the participant table. The Update process uses matching criteria to locate participant records that exist in the participant table and to be updated in the selected batch template with the update fields from the imported file. Delete and Update – updates existing participants and removes participants from a selected batch. This Map is a combination of ‘Add Only’ and ‘Delete and Update’. Add, Update, and Delete

10 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 10 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Fields The new maps use the following fields for importing Participant records: Field Data/Name Field Requirements Transaction Code(Numeric - 2 digits) FI Routing Number(Numeric - check digit calculation) Account Number(Alphanumeric - 17 maximum) Amount(Numeric - 10 maximum, no punctuation) Participant ID(Alphanumeric - 15 maximum) Participant Name(Alphanumeric - 22 maximum) Addenda Data(Alphanumeric - 80 maximum)

11 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 11 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Import Actions Along the top of this table are the following options: Match - indicates what data fields in the import file are used to locate existing participant records. Update - indicates the data to update on existing participant records. Position – defines the location of each field within the file being imported. For ‘Add Only’ option, all six (6) fields are required, with the ‘Addenda Data’ record being optional. Replacement Value – This is used to add information either a) not in the file being imported or b) to change the data in that field for all participants in the import file. A replacement value cannot be used when the Update box is checked for that field.

12 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 12 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Overview – Import a New Map Once the new map is set up, it appears on the main Import ACH Data screen.

13 Create a New Delimited Map

14 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 14 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Create a New Delimited Map 1.On the Import ACH Data screen, click on the link Create New Delimited Map. 2.The Delimited ACH Map screen appears.

15 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 15 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Create a New Delimited Map Notes: Special characters are not allowed in the Map Name. Tab delimiters are not allowed in the imported delimited text file as they are not visible and more commonly prone to file format errors. 3.Select a map type from the dropdown. 4.Enter a map name. This should describe the map file in order to distinguish it from other ones. 5.Select a delimiter from the dropdown list. The delimiter identifies the break between each data field of the file being imported. Options include: Comma (,) Colon (:) Semi-Colon (;) Backslash (\) Forward Slash (/) Pipe (|)

16 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 16 Business Banking ACH Import webcast 6.If the file contains a header, select Yes for Skip First Header Record; if the file contains only data records and no header, select No. 7.Enter the total number of fields in record line. For example, if the file contains a column for Name, Routing Number, Account Number, and Amount, the number of fields is four. Note: When importing a NACHA file, it must contain header and participant information. The other two import file types—Delimited and Fixed—can contain header information, but it will not be imported and therefore will not create a Batch Template. Create a New Delimited Map

17 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 17 Business Banking ACH Import webcast 8.Select the record/line terminator from the End of Record ID dropdown. New Line (carriage return – enter key) Comma (,) Colon (:) Semi-Colon (;) Backslash (\) Forward Slash (/) Pipe (|) 9.If the file contains quotes around the fields, select Yes for Strip Quotes (“”) around Fields; select No if they do not. Notes: When creating a map or a file for import, the ‘Delimiter’ and ‘End of Record ID’ cannot be the same. Excel files will typically wrap text fields in quotes. If you are unsure whether the fields contain quotes, select Yes and the Import process will detect if the strip is needed. Create a New Delimited Map

18 © 2011 Intuit Financial Services. Confidential and Proprietary p 18 Business Banking ACH Import webcast Create a New Delimited Map The Map Type selected determines the requirements for completing the Fields to Add, Match, or Update section.
