Troubleshooting
  1. When I try to import data from excel, it says there is a problem.
    Before the software import the data from excel. It validates with various criteria.

    Here are common mistakes done by users.

    • The excel file is not as per the desired template.
    • There are data missing in excel file.
    • The Bank Name mentioned in the excel file is not the same as in software.
    • Cheque No. is alpha numeric and also not unique.

  2. Its not printing accurately.
    It may seems that though you have align the cheque as per your actual cheque still while printing, its not printing exactly as per the specifications. There are 2 common possibilities for this.

    • Some printers add additional space while printing. Ex. if you have placed "A/C Payee" 10 MM from top, it may happens that while printing you get it printed on 15 MM from top. That is because the printer have add 5 MM extra margin. To solve this problem, either you can remove the margin from printer setting or you can move the "A/C Payee" to 5 MM from top.

    • Laser printers have a different way to print then deskjet. If you are using a laser printer, make sure in "Control Panel", under "Print Settings" you have selected "Laser Printer". Also verify how are you inserting cheque in Laser Printer, from "Left / Center / Right" position.
