In the Payment Journal window, you can process payments to your vendors by exporting a file together with the payment information from the journal lines. You can then upload the file to your electronic bank where the related money transfers are processed.

In the generic version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a global provider of services to convert bank data to any file format that your bank requires is set up and connected. In addition, the generic version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV supports the SEPA Credit Transfer format. In your country/region, other formats for electronic payments may be available.

To enable export of bank file formats that are not supported by the generic or local versions of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, use the Date Exchange Framework. For more information, see How to: Enable Import/Export of Bank or Payroll Files Using the Data Exchange Framework.

To enable SEPA credit transfers, you must first set up a bank account, a vendor, and the general journal batch that the payment journal is based on.

You then prepare payments to vendors by automatically filling the Payment Journal window with due payments with specified posting dates.

When you have verified that the payments are successfully processed by the bank, you can proceed to post the payment journal lines.
