Vendors can find a link to a CTX 820 (Corporate Trade Exchange) file at the bottom of Remittance Advice emails. The CTX 820 is an industry-standard flat file layout that contains all of the remittance data from an invoice. The CTX 820 file allows vendors to import the data back to their financial system, eliminating the need for manual entry. A maximum of 9,999 records is allowed.
Note: This file layout applies only to vendors who receive a remittance advice e-mail with a CTX file attached.
- All character fields are left-justified.
- All numeric fields are zero-filled anytime they are used; numeric fields are decimal implied.
- A carriage return/line feed is used at the end of each record.
- Any values longer than the maximum row length will be truncated to fit.
