Check Digit Calculator
Access this screen by selecting Tool #181: Calculate Member Checking Check Digit (Shortcut: cdigit) or via Check Digit (F12) from the Phone Operator screen.
This tool lets you calculate a check digit using a member’s checking account number. This is used when ordering or printing checks. (No changes are made to a member's account when this calculator is used.)
IMPORTANT: Programming must be done in CU*BASE to ensure that the check digit calculated here uses the same formula dictated by your check printing vendor. In addition, you must contact a CU*BASE representative if any changes are anticipated that would affect the calculation used by the CU*BASE check digit calculator. Also be sure to inspect the check digit shown when opening a new draft/checking account to ensure that the correct check digit number is being calculated.
Enter an account number base and suffix, use Enter, and the calculator will show the check digit and the exact number which should appear on the MICR line. If another check digit is needed, simply enter the next account number and use Enter. When done, use the up arrow (F7) to return to the Home Page.
