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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.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 Checks and Deposits tab to record or edit checks and deposits in the general journal or in another selected journal. Enter debit amounts as positive numbers. The program automatically treats negative amounts as credits. When entering an amount, enter the decimal manually unless you have selected the Implied decimal on amounts option in the Setup > User Preferences dialog.

Choose Transaction Entry from the Tasks menu and then click the Checks and Deposits tab.

Note: The fields in the Checks and Deposits tab are accessible only in Add or Edit mode, not in Browse mode. However, you must use Browse mode to change the journal in which you are entering transactions.


  • When entering negative amounts, enter the amount first followed by the minus ( - ) sign to have the cursor move immediately to the next field.
  • A check or deposit that has been cleared (or that is currently marked as cleared in the Bank Reconciliation window) is marked by a CLR notation in a status pane near the lower-left portion of the window.
