Here is a list of the fields and information about this screen. 

There is a filter bar at the top of the grid that allows you to key in a filter value to show only those records that match the filter.  Say you want to look up all checks written to Starre Enterprises, Inc., then in the Name field of the Filter Bar, key in Starre* - This will show all the checks for Starre - The asterisk is a wildcard and selects all records that start with Starre.  Or, you can use *Starre* and will show all records that contain Starre in the name.  You can select dates, or even info in the memo field.  To clear the filters you entered, just press the Esc key.

You are displayed a grid of all the printed checks for the selected Account.  You can scroll through and actually maintain the information by clicking on the grid for the record to maintain and just enter the correct information. Or, you can right click on a record to show a popup menu that will allow you to Void or even Delete a record.

Here are some of the options you are presented with on this screen.

The displayed grid has many features that make it very flexible to use. You can sort each of the columns by just clicking on the column heading, or you can filter out records by each column too. Experiment as the program will not save your settings so to get things back to normal, you can just exit the program and go back into it and everything will be reset.
