Print Data Interception and Single Pass Printing
Quick-Pass/Intelligent Print Data Interceptor™ (IPDI) allows you to print your checks in a single pass directly from Quicken, QuickBooks and Money. Using blank check paper you can print your business and personal checks and save time, effort and money.
The IPDI™ system allows you to set the printer option in Quicken, QuickBooks and Money to the VersaCheck Printer option which then allows VersaCheck to run in the background so that you may print complete checks from directly within your accounting software. Once you select the print checks option from Quicken, QuickBooks or Money, VersaCheck will automatically open in the background, intercept the print data, format it correctly with the check document information, print the checks, check that the print job completed correctly and then close itself. If you have a previous version of VersaCheck installed it will automatically load the existing VersaCheck data file (vdf) when you print checks. If you have not previously set up your account information in VersaCheck, the Account/Checkbook wizard will run the first time you print checks using the Quick-Pass/Intelligent Print Data Interceptor ™ system.

Once the printer is set up, you may create/edit checks as you normally would within Quicken, QuickBooks or Money. Once you tell the software to print checks you will see a VersaCheck print dialog box appear. (Depending on the speed/power of your computer there may be a very brief pause while VersaCheck intercepts and prepares the print data.) You will be able to select which checking account information to use (if you have set up multiple accounts) and you can set the check number for the starting check. IMPORTANT: The number that appears in the check number field MUST match the number of the starting check in your accounting software, if it does not match then change the number in the "Next Check Number" field of the VersaCheck print dialog window so that it matches the starting check number.
After all the checks have finished printing you will see another VersaCheck dialog box that allows you to select which checks, if any, printed incorrectly so that you may reprint them as necessary. Once you have finished this, VersaCheck will automatically close itself. You do not need to manually start or close the VersaCheck software when using IPDI™ with Quicken, QuickBooks or Money.
*IMPORTANT: When printing Standard or Wallet checks (which contain 3 checks per sheet) Money and Quicken both allow options to print a different number of checks on the first page. When using the IPDI to print from within Money, make sure that the option for 3 checks is selected (the 1 and 2 check option layouts are not supported). If printing from Quicken, make sure to select either 2 or 3 checks for the first page.
