You shoulda just made a fillable form with the pdf...that'd work really
snappy and neat :-)



I don't know what you mean?

I don't know anything about setting up pdf, I try changing it, I tried
print multiple images and it only printed a small one (one) on the paper.

I tried so many ways I ended up with a pile of scrap paper (LOL)

| I can tell you that I didn't have to jump thru hoops last year when I
| opened new new checking accounts. I really just wanted two small
savings
| accounts but the bank rep said that I'd be better off with checking
| accounts. Both are tied to our names so I can go online and access all
of
| my data with one log-in. My husband was not with me when I started them
so
| I couldn't add his name to the account. It's been like that for years -
| many years prior to 9/11. We recently added him just in case something
| should happen to me.
|
| To tie this all back to your original post, Publisher is *not* the
right
| program. Money, Accounting Express, Quicken - yes. Use your copy of
| Publisher to make cards, newsletters, posters, etc and you'll be a
much
| happier person.
|
| I think the point about my daughter and checking accounts was she had
| moved there from FL and the bank she had in FL doesn't have any branches
in
| VT. So they didn't seem to want that as "credit". They told her (and me,
I
| called once and asked if she could open a checking account if I put my
name
| on it, too, but they said they still had to go by her) it was because of
| homeland security. She would have to open a savings account and "use it"
| (like put in money, buy money orders from the bank to pay bills,
deposit,
| etc to show it was active). The woman I talked to said it didn't apply
to
| small town banks like in VT, but the rules were still there, and they
had
to
| follow them. She said they were afraid terrorists in foreign countries
would
| use fake names to set up accounts and deposit large amounts of money and
| keep it there until it was needed for something. She seemed to think it
was
| odd herself, and said "maybe it's a big city thing" My daughter had
moved
| from FL, and the bank she had there wasn't in VT (where she had bought a
| house and moved to) she was divorced and banks before FL had been in her
| husband's name, too. It was just a hassle, she found the credit union
much
| different. Now she is established (at the credit union) she probably
could
| easily open a checking account at the bank, but now she doesn't want one
| there.
|
| Anyway, I have decided making a check register doesn't work in
Publisher,
I
| thought I could use one of the booklet (pages and folds, etc) templates,
| etc.
|
| I ended up printing out the pdf of the register page. scanning it to my
| computer, saving it as a jpg, then after finding out it didn't work good
in
| Publisher I just printed out pages of it (on both sides) cut them to
size,
| stapled them together with a piece of cardstock on the back.
|
| It worked BUT, I think I will aim at getting a bunch of them from
the
| bank to have on hand from now on.

a

she

Really? We just set my daughter up with a teen-checking account and debit
card...piece o'cake.


yeah, you were probably established with a bank account in the area, or
she was in some way.

With my daughter, she moved from FL and the bank she had (BOA) isn't in
VT. Maybe there's something about it the VT banks don't trust (LOL)

My other daughter moved from FL a year later and couldn't get a checking
account at a bank, either, but by then they knew about the credit union and
she went there and openned one with no problem.

Maybe it's something to do with FL like they think illegal aliens or
terrorists might be coming from there? VT is on the Canadian border which
probably doesn't help. Like terrorists or someone planning to do harm is
going to come right in over the border and stopping all cars and trucks and
searching them and checking on the occupants is going to catch them (they
might have a bomb in their trunk?)

I think they may require passports for coming in from Canada now, too.

Like someone smart enough to plan any kind of terrorism (like 9-11 for
example) is gonna be dumb enough to drive across a border with proof of what
they plan to do in their car or truck.

Which sure gets off the subject of printing check register books

You need Acrobat (the real thing, not the reader), or any pdf creator
cabable of turning the pdf into a fillable form.
Create your form in Pub, Word, or from a scan (or whatever), pass it to your
PDF creator then you create data fields where you want to on the page/form.

Default is there a way to print a check register book?

Not from my neck of the woods, are you? You'd be surprised what some of my
kinfolk would do to save $5. ;-)

I paid $90 for the upgrade version and got it overnight with no charge

Amazon is only $5 cheaper.

You need Acrobat (the real thing, not the reader), or any pdf creator
cabable of turning the pdf into a fillable form.
Create your form in Pub, Word, or from a scan (or whatever), pass it to
your
PDF creator then you create data fields where you want to on the
page/form.



I have primo pdf creator, but haven't done much with it (just save
Publisher files in it, to email to people who can't open Pub. files) and
have Adobe Illustrator CS2, I occasionally focus on "trying" to learn, which
might have a pdf creator built in? Of course, Illustrator seems to create
ai files. I just like to learn all every chance I get.

I wonder if there's a list somewhere that says what programs will
use/open what files. But then there's also the different years/versions of
them too.

| | I can tell you that I didn't have to jump thru hoops last year when
I

| savings
| | accounts but the bank rep said that I'd be better off with checking
| | accounts. Both are tied to our names so I can go online and access
all
| of
| | my data with one log-in. My husband was not with me when I started
them
| so
| | I couldn't add his name to the account. It's been like that for
years -
| | many years prior to 9/11. We recently added him just in case
something
| | should happen to me.
| |
| | To tie this all back to your original post, Publisher is *not* the
| right
| | program. Money, Accounting Express, Quicken - yes. Use your copy
of
| | Publisher to make cards, newsletters, posters, etc and you'll be a
| much
| | happier person.
| |
| | I think the point about my daughter and checking accounts was she
had
| | moved there from FL and the bank she had in FL doesn't have any
branches
| in
| | VT. So they didn't seem to want that as "credit". They told her (and
me,
| I
| | called once and asked if she could open a checking account if I put
my
| name
| | on it, too, but they said they still had to go by her) it was
because
of
| | homeland security. She would have to open a savings account and "use
it"
| | (like put in money, buy money orders from the bank to pay bills,
| deposit,
| | etc to show it was active). The woman I talked to said it didn't
apply
| to
| | small town banks like in VT, but the rules were still there, and
they
| had
| to
| | follow them. She said they were afraid terrorists in foreign
countries
| would
| | use fake names to set up accounts and deposit large amounts of money
and
| | keep it there until it was needed for something. She seemed to
think
it
| was
| | odd herself, and said "maybe it's a big city thing" My daughter had
| moved
| | from FL, and the bank she had there wasn't in VT (where she had
bought
a
| | house and moved to) she was divorced and banks before FL had been in
her
| | husband's name, too. It was just a hassle, she found the credit
union
| much
| | different. Now she is established (at the credit union) she probably
| could
| | easily open a checking account at the bank, but now she doesn't want
one
| | there.
| |
| | Anyway, I have decided making a check register doesn't work in
| Publisher,
| I
| | thought I could use one of the booklet (pages and folds, etc)
templates,
| | etc.
| |
| | I ended up printing out the pdf of the register page. scanning it
to
my
| | computer, saving it as a jpg, then after finding out it didn't work
good
| in
| | Publisher I just printed out pages of it (on both sides) cut them to
| size,
| | stapled them together with a piece of cardstock on the back.
| |
| | It worked BUT, I think I will aim at getting a bunch of them
from
| the
| | bank to have on hand from now on.

online

| |
| | It's really hard to get a checking account now. Because of
| Homeland

to
| be
| | there in person to get an account (you know, terrorists might
open
a
| bank
| | account ) and then you need some high credit score. When we moved

| to
| | VT in 1997 I called a bank, they sent me forms I sent them back
with
| a
| | deposit and it was waiting when we got here. Three years ago, my
| daughter
| | moved here from FL (she had a Bank of America account there but
they
| | don't have them in VT, nearest one is 80 miles away) she couldn't
get
| a
| | checking account. She was buying money orders to send to her BOA
| online
| | account, or putting money in my acct and I'd give her checks.
They
| kept
| | putting her off. Said if she openned a savings account and used
it
| for
| a
| | few months. She did. They kept putting her off... About a year
later
| she
| | went to a credit union and they gave her one, no problem. She has
| checks,
| | debit card, etc. She closed her savings account at the bank and
put
| it
| in
| | the credit union. Wasn't just one bank but all she tried here.
Banks

| | | |
| | | | I found in a search (online) a page with tutorials

to

| | | |

| | One

| | | | I got the idea of printing it myself. Like several
pages,

cut

| | | | (maybe with a staple) to form a check register book.
| | | |
| | | | If I had a blank page from one, I could scan it, and

of

| | | |
| | | | I know, I can cut plain paper to size and fold it to

Primo cannot be used to create fillable forms. You need Acrobat or some
other third party software, and it won't be free.
