Yes, you can modify the printed check form to print a field on the face of your check as a Memo.  It can be tricky to print a Memo on the face of a check for two reasons. 

  1.   Is your Memo field coming from the paid Bills?  Some checks pay many bills. In the case of one check paying many bills, which bill has the Memo that prints on your check?
  2.  If your memo field is coming from the Check/Payment, timing of Memo field population is tricky.
  • Prepare Payments creates the check record.
  • Then Memo field needs to be populated on the Check Record in Payments screen. (Manually, via Business Event, or by Customization)
  • Then Check is printed.

@pderbogosian You most likely will have to modify the report that you use for AP Checks to add a reference to a field where you want to store the memos and also adjust it to the layout of your physical checks.

You can find the report by checking the Payment Method record.

In my case, that is Check Form with Remittance.
