The report for creating the Employee Direct Deposit ACH file has been modified. Historically, the 1 preceding the Company Tax Identification field indicated that the ID was the organization’s federal tax EIN. Some banks have now deviated from the standards and are requiring that a different number (or even no number) precede this company tax identification in the file. To help those customers comply with their bank’s particular requirements, this process has been modified so that the number for Position 41 in the 52 Record and the number for Position 45 in the 82 Record are indicated on the Select tab of the range screen. Numbers from 1 to 9 can be selected; select 0 for no number (blank/empty). Customers who are following the standards do not need to do anything differently as the 1 continues to automatically default.
The taskbar for the W2 menu in OpenRDA has been modified to include a State-Specific tab. Options are currently provided for Georgia, Illinois, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Some may be for an OpenRDA report while others may be a link to the state’s on-line forms/services.
The report for establishing life insurance salary and/or retirement salary in the payroll job master has been modified to allow ranging on personnel status (a field in Personnel Demographics). This report is accessed via Maintenance (Set, Change, or Clear) on the Resource Bar.

Querying job deduction pay masters (PAYJDPM) based on Pay Group is now an available option. This is possible due to these deduction pay masters being at the job level. The Pay Group is also available to the define list (should you want to establish a position and length so that the field appears in the Browse).
Visibility of a series of unemployment reports (under Payroll Tax Reports, Unemployment Reports) is dependent on the one selected in the generic setup variables for Unemployment Report (from Setup on Payroll’s Resource Bar). To have a different report display, change the setup variable, close OpenRDA and then access it again (you no longer have to run updates to the payroll module when changing this setting).
A report process has been created for exporting personnel identification and name fields from personnel demographics to a csv file. Unless a different file name is entered on the Range tab, the file will be created as PERSONNELID.csv in E-Documents as well as in the /rda/xpert directory. This OpenRDA report is accessed from Reports in the Personnel module.
