Check number in Accounts Payable

We do not use pre-numbered checks. I have set the bank account with the “free” numbering system. But, we always have to key in the beginning check number which means pulling the last check register to determine what it is. Doesn’t AX populate the next check number based on the last one used?

Can’t be achieved through standard. Must be a customization.

Thanks, Santosh. I wonder what the documentation means when it says that AX will suggest the next check number?

Cheryl, seems in AX2012 it’s working as you expected. For the first time you need to input the check number manually and further it automatically suggests you the check number.

Suppose you printed the check with number 10, next time when you try to generate the check system suggests the check number 11 but can be edited.
