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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.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 MICR tab of the Impound Checkbook dialog to enter the necessary information for the impound checkbook. Using the hardware described below, you may then print MICR-encoded checks on blank (rather than preprinted) check stock.

From the CSA main window, choose Setup > System Configuration > Impound Checkbook and then click the MICR tab.
