    Re: Check writing

    What is your definition of "standard size checks?" I have been using Quicken for over 10 years, and have never had a problem printing checks on the standard 8.5x11 inch sheets of three checks available from a number of sources.

    If you are talking about some other sized checks, then in the file menu there is a "Printer Setup" selection which produces a submenu containing a selection to setup for printing checks. That dialog contains a setup that allows you to move around where things print. You might be able to use that to set up for your checks.

    Try CheckMate4Quicken (www.checkmate4quicken.com). It installs as a print driver and will print on virtually any check. There is a (somewhat tedious) setup process to define the location of all the check fields on the checks you want to use. I got it to print on the checks my bank gave me. Ultimately I gave up on it as my printer wouldn't work reliably with paper as small as a personal check -- not the program's fault of course.

    Hey Legrange no cute pics or sigs here?

    I mean the standard el-cheapo kind of checks you can buy thru the mail and take with you when you are out there spending money at the brick&mortor places. And maintain your check numbers. Not the expensive you must have computer three on a sheet checks that don't travel well in your wallet.

    I have messed with all the Q settings but none of them fit. Another case of "them" making more money by requiring a special product?

    Cbarber tx. I will try that one. I have been using Excel and it took forever to get the spacing correct.

    My printer doesn't like small sizes of paper either. I made a carrier sheet. Use a standard (!) or what ever size sheet of paper with which your printer is happy or one just a grade heavier. I don't know how they grade paper weight. I use snail mail spam for scratch paper and it comes in all sizes and colors . Any way make slits at the corners of where the check needs to be and insert check/deposit slip/sheets of sticky labels or what ever. Once in a while this hangs up or feeds crooked but I use it to print receipts for my customers all day long.

    It really isn't worth the trouble for checks but I have to justify having a computer and printer for the business somehow <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Check writing (Quicken)

    I love Q except that it won't let me print checks on any size I want. I have an old 98 version but so long as it works with Turbo I don't see a need to upgrade. Unless they come up with changes in the check writing capabilities. Mean time has anybody got a way to force Q to write standard size checks?
