Creating an automatic recurring payment (check) to a vendor

You want to set up a recurring payment to a vendor that will occur automatically.

How to fix it
  1. If you have already created a check for the vendor with the amount you want to pay:
    1. Find the check in the register and click Edit Transaction, or
    2. Go to the Vendor Center
    3. Locate and double click on the vendor
    4. Click on the Transactions tab, choose Checks.
    5. Double click on desired check to open
  2. If you have not yet created a check:
    1. Open check screen by clicking on Banking > Write Checks (or use CTRL W)
    2. Create the payment to the vendor by filling out the check as you want it to appear each time
  3. Click Edit > Memorize Check (or use CTRL M)
    1. Choose the desired reminder option
    2. Select the desired frequency
    3. Enter date of next payment in Next Date field
    4. Enter the number of times to have payment automatically reoccur
    5. If desired, enter a value in Days in Advance to Enter field
    6. Click OK to memorize the transaction
  4. If it is an auto-pay, uncheck the To be printed checkbox
  5. If you did not uncheck the To be printed checkbox, the check will appear in the Print Checks queue on the day it is recorded
  6. Click the Save & Close button to save the check
  7. Based on the reminder option you selected, you will either receive a reminder to create the check or to print it when the next occurrence is due
