Exporting Text Format Positive Pay File in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

by | Updated October 9, 2019 | Development, Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

In Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, the default format of the Positive Pay output is XML. Microsoft has provided steps for the setup of Positive Pay as well as a sample XSLT file used to transform the output.

However, it is possible to create your own XSLT file for text or CSV format. The following sample code creates a fixed length text file but could be modified easily for CSV format. Note the output method highlighted below. Here is a link to the string manipulation functions used in the sample.

It is important to note that when generating the Positive Pay file and the Open or Save prompt appears, you must change the file type to Txt. See the following screenshots.

1. Upload the transformation file as per the instructions in the link at the beginning of this article.
