What is the best option available if you have “Released a Payroll Batch” and did not get the .TXT file. Is there a way to Delete or Void a Payroll Batch so that a new one can be created?

If the version you are using has the “Payment Batch” option, then you can open the payment batch, click on Actions & Export the NACHA (.txt) file again.  If using an older version that does not have “Payment Batch”, I would create a support case and Acumatica should be able to recreate the NACHA (.txt) file for you.

The process can depend slightly on the version of Acumatica and what step you are on in the payroll process.  A released payroll batch doesn’t have a void or delete options.  The released payroll batch creates a “Regular Paychecks” entry for each employee in the batch and sets their stats as “Needs Calculation”.  If this is as far as you made it in the process, you can delete one or all of the regular paychecks entries by simply opening the entry, selecting the trash can and confirming.  Then you could build a new payroll batch and release, creating new paycheck entries.


Keep in that paycheck entries can be edited/corrected and then recalculated so depending on this issue you are attempting to resolve may be an easier approach.   Your Acumatica partner maybe able to provide better guidance and other options.

Sorry Scott, didn’t realize you are at the Payment Batch not the Payroll Batch
