Does anyone know if they have fixed the cheque number in version 6.
The spec says 12 digits but it only takes 9.
They have never ever fixed this and it causes major problems with one of my clients.
They say Accpac cannot meet its own spec ever since Accpac for Windows was launched.

Which spec?
In 6.0 the check number field is limited to 9 characters and is numeric only - the same as all the previous versions.
It's not broken so they will not fix it.

The manual says 12. Accpac here even said 12.
But you right, its only 9.

OK, but the input screen only allows 9 characters.
There must be some reason behind the design, or not.
Whatever the case, nothing will change unless it is taken up with Accpac directly.

We have done so in version 5.2
They said it was not a priority for them so would not fix it in 5.3.
Still nothing in 5.6.
So was wondering if they fixed it in V6.0

It has not changed, so don't expect it to change.

Changes we requested since 1.0A have still not been made, like vendor refunds. We waited a decade for customer refunds. Something like the length of the check number is not going to happen unless it is logged by many people.

This has been known for over 2 years and they have never ever fixed this and it causes major problems with one of my clients. I reported this to them and they said they could not meet their own spec ever since Accpac for Windows was launched. I told them this was unacceptable, that they were in breach of contract and that they had to fix it by the end of June at the latest or find some other solution. I suggest you https://masterbundles.com/stock-content/vector/disney-svg/ the source to download Disney SVG Files. They did nothing until June 30th when they said they would fix it in version 6.1. I told them this was unacceptable and that we were going to sue them unless they fixed it by September 30th. They are now saying that they will fix it in version 6.1 which is not due until December but cannot guarantee it will be done by then because there are other bugs that have priority over cheque number issues.
