ADP Export Settings

TimeIPS Payroll Export can generate a file with your payroll data. The file can be opened in a spreadsheet application, such as Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc. Using the Payroll Integration with Benefits Tracking (IPSQBI) optional module, the file can be imported in your ADP payroll application.

Security Level Required: Payroll Administrator
Using the left pane Main Menu, click on: Administration » Payroll and Reports » Payroll Export

Before you export:

  • If using jobs, Control Numbers are exported to ADP via the "Temp Dept" field and must be 3 or 6 characters long, containing only uppercase letters, digits, and the following characters: $ / - . ,
    NOTE: In order to export an employee's hours for a specific job separately from their default work hours, the job must have a control number. This is set up on the Billing Tab of the Job record in Job Management.
  • You will have the option to use the employee's ID/Badge, Alternate ID Number, or Social Security Number (SSN). Employees are assigned an ID/Badge number by default, but Alternate Numbers and Social Security Numbers must be entered prior to export if you choose either of these identifiers.

Step 1: Select Export Contents

    Select a Payroll Type and Payroll Period for the date range you are working on from the drop-down boxes and click on the button labeled Prepare Payroll for Export. Next you should see the payroll calculation being scheduled

    NOTE: If necessary, it is possible to manually select your payroll time range and employees as well as change the export settings for payroll using the appropriately labeled tabs at the top of this page..

    Step 2: Choose an Export Format

    Select ADP PC/Payroll 5.1 from the drop down menu and then click on the button labeled Export Payroll Data

Click on Add Preset to begin setting up a preset for the ADP export

  • The preset window will appear.

    • The following export settings should be defined prior to running your ADP export:

    • Preset Name: Enter the name you wish to assign to the preset.
    • Company Code: Your ADP assigned Company Code; column is included in the payroll export and used to name the exported file
    • Batch Number: Value used by ADP to represent a new batch of payroll data in order to prevent duplicate records on subsequent imports
    • Pay Number: The Pay Number code defined by ADP
    • Hide Pay Number Column: Select “Yes” to remove the Pay Number column in the export file; select “No” to include the column in the export file with the value defined in the “Pay Number” field above.
    • Use Expanded Fields: Only set this option if your ADP region uses expanded field sizes.
    • Use Custom Field Mapping: Requires special module
    • Delimiter: A comma is the default setting. Enter "tab" to use a tab delimiter.
    • File Number: Your options are "Alternate Number", "ID/Badge Number" and "Social Security Number (SSN)"
    • NOTE: Doubletime, holiday, sick, and vacation hours must be idenfied in ADP as "Hours 3" or "Hours 4" and given a unique identifying pay code. Those settings, as defined in your ADP application, will be identified in the Pay Code Name and Pay Code in TimeIPS.
