Screen Overview

This is the first part of the screen used to reprint a check or money order that is damaged or has a typographical error which does not affect the amount. This feature is intended to reprint the check or money order the same day the error was made; checks and money orders cannot be reprinted after end-of-day has been processed.

When you use this option the original item is flagged as spoiled. The general ledger is not affected because the amount did not change.

  • NOTE: If the check or money order needs to be voided, or to spoil checks that have not yet been printed (for example, if you spilled coffee on a batch of pre-numbered check stock), use the CU Check/Bank Reconciliation feature to mark the checks as spoiled.

When all fields have been filled, use Enter to display the second part of the screen. Make changes to the Payee information and Remitter name, if necessary, then use Enter. A confirmation screen appears to allow you to check all data. Use Print to print the check.

  • NOTE: The name and address of the “Pay to” for this check will be printed on the middle portion of the check stub to fit into a standard window envelope. (The only exception is certificate redemption checks; there is not enough room for the address on the stub in this case.) To keep it from being obvious that a check is enclosed, be sure to fold the check so that that middle portion appears in the window.
