This has been around for a long time:

Code is open to modify to your needs.

If you can see your self needing features beyond what CheckWriter offers, you can go up a level and use Quickbooks:
http://quickbooks.intuit.com/

Remember, eventually this may not stay a check writing app exclusively for long.
You may be asked to interface with A/R, A/P, partial payments, Tracking, Vendors, Work Orders, Tax Docs, HR Data, ...etc
(and don't forget that many other feature may be required for auditing purposes)

;-)

Hi Jeff,

But can quickbooks be integrated to a MSAccess database?

Thanks

OB can be yes, but you will need to be pretty savvy with VBA and get up and close and personal with the QB API.  I would not call it straight forward.  Really ... check out the link I posted ... again, you can modify the app because the code is open,

Yes, you can link through "QODBC".
See here:
http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/Articles/INF12836.
But your data has to be in a very specific format/structure.
In other words, ...you cannot simply link QuickBooks to "Whatever" MS Access data you have.

I did not want to go off on a tangent
But the point of my post was to suggest that if your needs outgrow CheckWriter, you may want to consider moving your system from Access to Quickbooks.
Contact Quickbooks directly for more info.

My guess is that CheckWriter will meet your immediate needs, so I recommend going with that for now..

Thanks all,

I had been hoping for a simpler solution. One probably done in A2003 i.e. some sort of template which I could somehow integrate into my own system.

Grateful for comments.

Conflicting statements...
;-)

No one knows how your existing system is designed, so integrating anything may not be what you would call "Simple".

Certainly, creating a system to write checks in Access is fairly straightforward, but simply "Bolting" this functionality on to an unknown system may present some unique challenges.

Not sure why you want to reinvent the wheel when its already been done in the link I posted first - and as noted, the source code is included - and you can tweak as required.

Yes, what makes checkwriter is so "complex" that you cannot use it?
(Perhaps even "replacing" it for your existing system...)

See not reason to delete.

RE: "One probably done in A2003 i.e. some sort of template which I could somehow integrate into my own system."

That is exactly what the app in the link I gave does.  If nothing else, Accept your own comment with zero points.
