Check Management  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

Check management is used in cases where, when issuing your checks, you do not want to use the payment document number as the check number, but a different numbering method instead.

The check management functions help you to manage both prenumbered checks and those checks assigned numbers from your own number ranges.

Prenumbered checks are an accepted form of payment in countries such as the USA, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, and Australia. The numbers for these checks are determined by the bank and printed on the check itself.

You can define your own check number ranges in the following circumstances: If the bank defines a certain number interval; If the payment document number cannot be used for other reasons (it is too long or you want to define ranges big enough to last for several years, and so on); or if you want to use aspects of the functionality in check management described below.

Check management functions can be accessed from the Accounts Payable or Accounts Receivable menu by choosing Environment ® Check information.

Those functions relating to the automatic payment program can also be accessed from the Automatic Payment Transactions screen by choosing Environment ® Check information.
