Step 1 – in esiLaw 360 go to Lists > Templates
Step 2 – In the Templates window go to “Print Cheque” and double click
Step 3 – In the Print Cheque Window you can select “Top,Middle,Bottom” depending on the position of your printed cheques. And you can select whether or not to print the MICR number at the bottom (if your cheques do not have this pre printed)
