Entering payroll might be one of the most time consuming tasks you need to perform. If you take advantage of Payroll Connect in GP, you can process your payroll in a few minutes with the click of a button, reviewing an edit list, and posting your payroll batch.
Before you can take advantage of this feature, you should work with your payroll representative to complete the following tasks:
-Obtain the correct file structure for the import file.
-In the ADP product, set up the same account framework as in GP.
-The format used in the ADP tool must contain 10 fields. Even though all 10 fields are not used by GP, they must still exist.
-The file should be comma delimited
-Each field should have quotes around it. Open the file with Notepad to confirm.
The following table describes the 10 fields needed in the ADP Payroll Connect import file.
|General Ledger Account Number|
|Reference Number 1|
|Reference Number 2|
|Reference Number 3|
Some of these fields are not used by GP. These fields can either be blank or have a fixed value, but they must still exist.
