Quick Check Writer

Most of the checks you print are done through Accounts Payable. However, there may be situations where you simply want to print a single check to someone who is not a regular vendor or someone who is a one-time payee.

Here's a quick and easy way to print a check.

From the Lynx Main Menu . . .

1. Left-click on Bookkeeping and a drop down menu will appear.

2. Left-click on General Ledger.

3. Left-click on Quick Check Writer which will display the Quick Check Writer window.

4. From the drop-down lists, left-click a bank account against which the check will be written and then left-click the expense account to be charged:

The Quick Check Writer is designed for printing checks that require only a single bank account and a single expense account.  If you have a more complex transaction (where more than two General Ledger accounts are required), use a Journal Entry with the Print Check Option.  


5. Key in the amount of the check and the check number:


6. Select the person or business that the check will be made out to from the drop-down list:

If the person or business is not on the drop-down list, it can be added by left-clicking the button. See Add, Change, Delete Payees for details on how to do this.


7. Left-click the button and the check will now appear on the Print Preview window. Left-click the print button to print the check or left-click the button to exit.

8. If you printed the check, left-click the close button in the upper right-hand corner of the Quick Check Writer window and the Journal Entries window for the check you just wrote will be displayed.

9. Left-click the button to post this batch.

10. After it's been posted to the General Ledger, left-click the button to return to the Lynx Main Menu
