Adding a Check Format

In CDM+ you can format check stub(s) and position information on checks. You can save multiple formats—for example, AP checks and Payroll Checks. The Payroll Setup window is where you create new payroll check formats or make adjustments to existing formats. You can also alter a check format “on the fly” from the Write Checks window by clicking on the Modify button next to the check format drop list. In this section, we will explain adding and modifying payroll check formats from Payroll Setup.

Click on the Checks tab of the Payroll Setup window.
