(POL) Create an export file for a vendor [AX 2012]

Updated: October 16, 2012

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

An export file is an electronic file that is used to transfer payments between your legal entity and another legal entity. You can create an export file for a vendor by using the Generate payments form. Before you generate the export file, you must define its format. To support the interchange of electronic data between Microsoft Dynamics AX and the vendor’s bank, this file format must be compatible with the file format of the vendor’s bank. You can use the MultiCash or VideoTel payment export formats to export the electronic payment files that are generated by Microsoft Dynamics AX to the banks.
