Recording manual check in Dynamics Ax 2009

Step 1: Setup bank management parameter

Path: Dynamics Ax > Bank > Setup > Parameters

Set field 'Allow checks for bank or ledger accounts' = True

Note: This configuration enables manual check recording capabilities for CEU company in the system.

Step 2: Create bank transaction type 'Check - Manual'

Path: Dynamics Ax > Bank > Setup > Bank transaction type

'Ctrl + N' to create new record in the form

Set field 'Bank transaction type' = 04

Set field 'Name' = Check - Manual'

Click menu 'Save'

Close form 'Bank transaction type'

This setup completes the setup part.  The transaction processing follows below from Step 3. 

Step 3: Process of recording manual check

Path: Dynamics Ax > General Ledger > Journals > General journal

Create a new journal line

Select from list view 'Name' = GenJrn

Click button 'Lines'

Set field 'Account' = 600140

Set field 'Transaction text' = Payment

Set field 'Debit' = 250.00 USD

Set field 'Offset account type' = Bank

Click tab 'Payment'


 Click button 'Transactions'

Highlighted grid is the transaction with 'Payment reference' = 1201

This completes recording manual check process.



  • Hmm - no journal posting? Or, at least, you didn't mention the posting, but I supect you did post the journal, but didn't mention it here - or we wouldn't have seen a transaction?

    It's also unclear where the payment reference originated from? You mention a manual cheque (check) payment, but you haven't specified the cheque number - is this the payment reference?

  • Regarding journal entry I'll update the entry with screen shots.

    Yes with respect to check number we use it as 'Payment reference', this process helps us recording the transaction of manual check.

  • Where is the information from the transaction type setup being used in the transaction? Would the process be the same to manually record an electronic (ACH/wire) payment made outside the system, and if so, is there any way to tie the payment and expense to a specific vendor?
