16458: MICR Calibration (DAS)


Drake Accounting®: The bank is rejecting the checks printed in our office because of the MICR font.  How do I fix this? 


Calibration is a two-step process that ensures the MICR information prints at the correct width and intensity.  If the bank rejects the MICR font printed, a new font must be selected.


To select a new MICR font, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the Financial menu (Firm menu in DAS19 and prior), then select MICR Calibration.
  2. Select Print to print the calibration tool to the MICR printer selected under Firm > Firm Information Setup (if not selected under Firm > User Setup).  Follow the instructions in the calibration tool to determine the correct MICR font for your system.
  3. Once you determine the correct MICR font for your system, select it from the Step 2 drop list.
  4. Select Save.
