Processing a prior payroll batch

For live payroll processing only

Generally, when you select the payroll schedule to process payroll, Accounting CS automatically retrieves information for the current payroll batch for that payroll schedule, whether the prior batch has been processed or not. However, you can choose to process the most recent prior payroll batch for a payroll schedule, if it has not yet been processed.
