The check writer program allows you to write
checks without entering a bill first, but remember you can not pay a
previously entered bill here.
First select the bank account from which you want
to write the check from, then if this is a vendor check select a
vendor by vendor id or vendor name.
If this is not a vendor check, have the check next to vendor
off, then you can enter a name of the payee on the check itself.
The check number will default to next check number associated
with the bank account selected. You
can change that check number. You
can also change the date associated with the check as well.
You can put in a future date or a past date but you can not
enter a date that is prior to the last general ledger close.
Once you enter the amount you will not that the legal or the
word interpretation of the amount will be displayed for you on the
check. You can if you
wish type a memo for the check we highly recommend entering one for
your records. Distribute
the check fully to the correct general ledger accounts so that you can
save the check. Once you
save the check you can print it.
To enter another check select the add new button from the tool
bar. The add new button
is the first button on the tool bar.
To edit or delete checks that been previously
saved you must access the check register.
