EFT file is not generating filler lines correctly

When generating an EFT file the file will generate but will not generate the needed filler lines for the file to be successfully submitted to the banking institution. When file is regenerated, the file will generate correctly with the required filler lines. 
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Log in to The Student Billing  module
  2. Click Banks Tab
  3. Under Deposit Tasks, select Create EFT File
  4. On the Step1: Criteria Tab, select processing date and deposit dates
  5. Click Next
  6. On the 2: Filters tab, Set filters if needed
  7. Click Next
  8. On the 3: Deposits tab, Select Deposits to include
  9. Click Next
  10. On the 4: File Options tab, enter the file name/location and fill in the required information.
  11. Click Next
  12. On the 5: Logon Cards tab, click insert and enter the Logon Cards if needed
  13. Click Create Now
The file will generate, but will be missing the filler lines for the blocking format of the EFT file.

Re-run the EFT file again (and again, if needed) and the EFT will generate correctly.

NOTE: The EFT file should be in blocks of 10 lines. If the file is in a multiple of 10, the filler lines are not needed.
