3.3. Check Setup

To arrive at the Check Setup screen, from the main Screen, click Setup then Checks

This will display the Setup Options screen for your Check Setups. Here you will find the different settings and options. We have listed the different fields and options you have to choose from along with a description of the different settings. Below you will find the Setup screens for a normal wallet check & the Setup for a voucher style check.

 

There is a grid that displays the different Checks that are defined in this program. You can click on one that is displayed and the record will be selected for changes etc.

Be sure, once you have selected your check style here, that you select this Check Type in the Account Setup. Click Setup then Accounts.

Then use the drop down box to select Check Type for the Account selected.

Then click Close to save your selection.

Check Name:
This field allows you to enter a Check Name that is used to define your Check Layout to be printed.  If you only have one Check layout, then I would suggest leaving it defined as Default.  Otherwise, you can create a different one if needed.

Voucher Style Check: - This check box selection is used to define if this is a Voucher Style check or not.  If this is checked, then it means you are defining a Voucher Style Check.  Which is a full sheet check with two voucher areas on it.

Voucher Positions: This selection field will only be displayed if a Voucher Style check is selected.  This will tell the program where the Vouchers are positioned on the sheet.  You have 3 choices.  13, 23, and 33.  13 means the check is the first to print followed by the two vouchers on the sheet.  23 means the check is in the middle of second position, and there is a voucher on top and bottom of the sheet.  33 means the check is the last to print on the sheet proceeded by two vouchers above the check.  Choose which one fits your check sheets.

Check Form Size:
These fields allows you to enter the actual size of your checks.  This is stored in inches and you must include the Height and Width of the actual check being printed.
