Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

Use the following procedure to set up and use an alternate account for a check run:

  1. In the CSA main window, choose Setup > Employees.
  2. Select the appropriate employee, then click the Edit button.
  3. Click the Direct Deposit tab.
  4. Mark the Activate alternate accounts checkbox.
  5. Select Alternate from the drop-down list in the Type field.
  6. In the Direct Deposit Information grid, enter the employee's information for the special check run.

    Note: If this information is not set up or does not have approved status when paychecks are processed, a live check will be produced.

  7. Click the Enter button to save the employee, and then close the Employees dialog.
  8. Choose Setup > Calculation Profiles.
  9. Click the Add button to create a new calculation profile, entering the appropriate information on the General tab.
  10. Click the Deduction and Withholding Overrides tab.
  11. Mark the Use alternate direct deposit account checkbox.

    Note: This checkbox will be available only if the Activate alternate accounts checkbox in the Employees dialog has been marked for at least one employee. The application automatically uses the primary direct deposit information for employees who do not have the Activate alternate accounts checkbox marked.

  12. Click Enter to save your choices, and then click Done to exit the Calculation Profiles dialog.
  13. Choose Tasks > Payroll entry.
  14. Press F3, and choose Options from the context menu.
  15. Choose the correct calculation profile for this check run from the drop-down list, and then click OK.
