How to assign a check number to pay the balance of a partially paid bill
A check number cannot be assigned to a partially paid bill to record payment of the balance, even if the balance has been paid via EFT or through a hand-written check.
If you paid the balance of a partially paid bill through either an EFT or through a handwritten check, there is only one way to record the payment: you must assign a check number through the normal check process.
The following example uses the check process to record a handwritten check or an EFT that pays the balance of a partially paid bill.
- Mark the bill you want to pay and click Print Checks.
- Review the information and if it's correct, click Create Checks.
- You can change the check number on this screen. At this point, the check number has been recorded, but the check is now waiting in the Checks-To-Be-Printed queue. You must clear this check out of the queue by following the next steps. Click Print Selected.
- The check PDF will display. Since your goal is to assign a check number and not to print a check, simply close the PDF. On the Did checks print OK? confirmation screen, leave the mark on Yes, I clicked the Print icon and Check(s) printed correctly and Click Submit. This clears it out of the checks-to-be-printed queue.
Your bill has now been assigned a second check number for the balance that was either paid through an EFT or through a handwritten check.
