The List of Checks Report displays checks, check number, date, payee, amount and other details. The report is very similar to the register in a checkbook, but with the capability of greater detail and filtering functionality.
Below is an example report (which may have been cropped and shrunk to conserve space).
From the main menu, click Reports > Accounting > Banking > List of Checks, or use the Report Navigator (see related topics).
