No, QuickBooks doesn't generate ACH files that can be uploaded to a bank. What you CAN do however, is since you have to process the ACH through your bank anyway, use your bank website to do the ACH then wait for the transaction to download into QuickBooks and assign the expense at that point or once you do the ACH on your banks website then create the expense transaction in QuickBooks and then match the download when it posts to the existing transaction.
I appreciate the link that you've provided, @MG3000.
There are third-party apps that can be sync from QuickBooks App center. While there are other apps that need to be integrated via the Apps website to QuickBooks.
Since the Community page is a public space, I’d suggest contacting the Customer Care team for ACH Universal. They have the tools to further assist you with creating an ACH file on a secured environment.
Alternatively, you can look for a third-party app that offers similar feature via the QuickBooks Apps Center.

Thank you so much! I was interested in ACH Universal but I couldn't get any feedback from QuickBooks about customers using their software. I was directed to the Apps store for preferred vendors so I was hesitant about pursuing that vendor.
You'll want to consider using the Online Bill Pay, MG3000.
This lets you pay directly your bills through bank transfers from QuickBooks Online and pay Vendors/Contractors via (ACH) or paper check.
You can learn more information about Online Bill Pay in this article.

ACH Universal is located on both the QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online app stores.
The URL for QuickBooks Online is: https://apps.intuit.com/app/apps/appdetails?shortName=ACHUniversal&locale=en-us
The earlier link (https://desktop.apps.com/apps/136200#!overview) was for ACH Universal on the Desktop store. Both products enable you to create ACH Files. My apologies for any earlier confusion on the links.
