Importing data using CSV file format is easy and fast. The column order is as follows;
- Account No.
Date: is the date you want to print on the cheque.
Payee: is the name you want to print on the cheque.
Amount: is the amount of the cheque. Please don’t format it. It should be a plain number. 26000 is a valid number whereas 26,000.00 is not a valid format. Don’t include thousand separator or decimal places unless there are decimal values in the amount.
CheqNo: is the cheque number of the cheque.
Crossed: If you want to print the “A/C Payee Only” on the cheque, you need to put “Y” in the column, or put “N” to print nothing. You can not keep this column empty.
Account No: this is the most important column of all. This number should be matched with an account number created in the CheqMate software. Only accounts created under Accounts section in the CheqMate software is able to import data.
Remarks: you can put any description here to identify the purpose of the payment.
