More information

Check Amount to Words tool

The Check Amount to Words tool is a feature that lets you print the decimal currency in words on a Payables Management check or a Payroll check.

Consider the following scenario. You have more than 2 decimal places set up for the company currency in the Currency Setup window. You want to print a check with the value of $105.52. The Check Amount to Words tool will print the check amount in words to show only 2 decimals. The check will display the value as One Hundred Five Dollars and 52 cents instead of One Hundred Five Dollars and 52000 cents.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and higher versions


In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and higher versions, the Check Amount to Words feature is now avialable in Professional Tools Services Library. It is listed as Decimal Place Tool under the Misc. Tools section. You can activate it by marking the second checkbox next to it and it will change the wording on the check for both Payables Management and Payroll checks. This will only change the wording on the check.  To change the actual amount, you will need to modify the amount in Report Writer to only display two decimals.  See KB 852187 below for more information:
