Adagio Tip of the Month: Alphanumeric Check Numbers

Sep 13, 2022

Question: I am looking for an easy way to get my manual payments to go A001, A002, A003, etc…

I’ve gone to the Company Profile tab in Accounts Payable and selected the “Alphanumeric manual check numbers?” box. Now when I go to do a manual payment I can put letters in as well.

However, what I am really trying to do is differentiate this payment stream by prefixing it with a letter or letters.

Can you suggest a way to do this easily?

Answer: You could hard code the “A” into the check specification. On the other hand, if these are EFT payments, the EFT add-on automatically numbers each EFT payment with a prefix of EFT and a sequence number. This would give you what you’re asking.
