Trust Accounting Q&A: Automate Positive Pay

November 2023    Tags: ,

We run the Positive Pay export process in Trust on a daily basis. Is there a way to automate this utility?

You can use a startup option with Trust to automatically export Positive Pay. This allows you to create the export using a shortcut. You can use the same shortcut to add this as a scheduled task in Windows.

The startup option is “/POSITIVEPAY #”, where # is the bank account that you want exported.

To add POSITIVEPAY as a startup option

  1. Make a copy of your Trust desktop icon with a distinctive name (e.g. “Positive Pay Export”).
  2. Right-click the new desktop icon and select Properties.
  3. In the Target field, add a space after the path and then enter “/POSITIVEPAY #” (e.g., “C:\Program Files\Tabs3\TAS.EXE” /POSITIVEPAY 1).
  4. Click OK to update the shortcut.

The export file is overwritten each time the export is run. If you want to retain a copy of the export, copy or move the export file before performing the export again.

Note: Trust will close once the export has been completed.
