The following error message may be displayed when running the Accounts Payable | Transactions | EFTS Export:


First, consider the background of this query:

  • This issue was experienced by a client using the Australian installed edition of Evolution.
  • They properly installed the Australian edition of Evolution but were getting the above error on EFTS Exports.
  • The client discovered that the Accounts Payable | Maintenance | Defaults | EFTS screen only presented the South African EFT bank list (as also found on the Common | Maintenance |EFTS File Layout grid).


To resolve this query, the following steps should be applied:

  1. Close Evolution on the local PC.
  2. Open the local Evolution installation folder (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Sage Evolution).
  3. Open the Evolution.ini file (use Notepad if it needs an application to open it).
  4. Change the cCode value from 0 to 1 and save the changes on the Evolution.ini file. 3
  5. When logging back into the company, the original Australian EFTS bank layouts should be back. After selecting the relevant Australian EFTS layout, the EFTS Export run should be completed without further issues.
  6. Note that if using the South African edition of Evolution results in the above error, ensure the value in step 4 above = 0. For using the New Zealand edition of Evolution the value = 2.
  7. Repeat the same steps on all the workstations from where EFTS export runs need to be executed.
