Although the rules are not mandatory until September 2008, any new cheque forms you purchase now will be CPA compliant and you will need the Productivity Disk #7 (PD7) to use them correctly.
IMPORTANT! - Productivity Disk #7 will ONLY run under NewViews version 1.41b, procedure library 12. You must check your version before ordering. To check your version, you must be Inside any NewViews set of books. You can then run a procedure called SUPPORT (/Go RunProc SUPPORT) and once you hit <enter> look where it states "Procedure Library Version". If it says 12, you are on the correct version. If any other version number is displayed, you must order NewViews procedure library 12.
PD7 contains the following procedures:
- SETUPC - A "setup" procedure with which you choose the date and amount styles to be used on checks.
- PRTPAY & PRTCHKS - New versions of the check-printing procedures, updated to print dates and amounts in the style chosen in SETUPC.
- Templates - Several check templates are included that are CPA-Compliant.
Frequently Asked Questions
What guidelines can you give me for purchasing CPA cheques?
If you can, purchase cheque forms that do not have the word "Date", the date guide characters, or the amount dollar-sign pre-printed on the form. These items can be printed by NewViews, and it makes the alignment of your template to the form much simpler if NewViews prints these items.
What templates are included?
Templates are provided for the following forms:
What if you don't have a template for my cheque form?
You can modify any of the supplied templates to fit your needs - and this is now easier than it was in the past. CPA compliancy means that most cheque forms will vary only slightly from one another, so one of the supplied templates is bound to match your form, perhaps with a minor adjustment here or there.
