MICR Fonts Do Not Print On Checks

Sage 100 versions 2013 and later use Crystal Reports 2011, which requires True Type fonts. This can cause an issue where MICR fonts don’t print on checks in Sage 100 version 2013 or later.

If you’re using an older version of Sage 100, please follow these steps to correct this issue:

  1. From the Sage 100 installation CD, click Productivity Applications and select Install Federal and State eFiling and Reporting.
    • Note:  This procedure will install an Aatrix MICR True Type font, which can be used for check printing.
  2. Edit the check form by right-clicking the @MICR field on check and select Format Field.
    • Note: Crystal Reports XI must be installed on the machine to edit the check form.
  3. Open the Font tab and change font to Aatrix MICR font—it will be listed with an MICR symbol followed by the word Aatrix.

If you do not have the Sage 100 installation CD, please perform the following:

  1. Browse to the ..\MAS90\Wksetup folder, right-click on Autorun.exe and select Run as Administrator.
  2. Select Install Federal and State eFiling and Reporting.
  3. Proceed with Steps 2 and 3 in the section above.

    When I preview my checks, the MICR information appears on the preview. However, when I print them, the MICR information does not appear – only random symbols. I’ve updated my printer drivers with the same result. Any suggestions?
