WRITE CHECKS USING THE PROGRAM
To write checks, do you need an additional check writing program
or do you need to order checks that can be printed in a printer?
When I try to print a check it just prints it out on a blank
piece of paper.
You do not need to buy any other program, but you will need to
have the checks (the program prints "on blank" checks,
it does not create the check).
2) I have downloaded a trail
copy. Your description stated you could write checks but I
haven't located this feature anywhere in the program?
Yes you can. Go to the "Withdrawls" form and you
will see (at the bottom) a "Print Button". You
can print a check for each "record/expense".
3) When I click on the
check button at the lower left hand corner of the "withdrawls"
page, it just minimizes that screen. In order to print the
check, I have to up to the printer button in the toolbar and
click on that. Is this correct or am I missing something?
You are correct. That is supposed to happen. The
program lets you "preview" the report/check so that
you can make any adjustments (like, paper size, margins,
etc...), then if everything is ok, just click "print".
4) I am trying to order
computer checks to use with your program. The check printing
vender needs to know what software program is doing the check
printing, such as Microsoft Money V2.5, etc. I wasn't sure
whether to stipulate the HUD-1 Statement V3.0 or if there's
some other integrated check writing program, such as named
Yes, you are correct, you do not want to order any checks and
them find out they will not work with your program.
The design of the check should the same as the one used for
Microsoft Money 2000 (1 check per page), however I suggest you
go to "HUD-1 Settlement Statement V3.0" print one complete check on a
blank piece of paper and send it to them or take it to your
local office supply store and ask them if they have checks in
Please note that "HUD-1 Settlement Statement V3.0" let users
preview each check and adjust top, bottom, left, and right
margins, so there are many types of checks that can be used with
5) Is there any way to
add a voucher or statement to the check when printing it that
would show, for example, the date, check number, amount, purpose
of, etc.? The single check forms come with 2 vouchers attached,
all on one sheet and I was just wondering because it looks like
the program just prints the check portion only.
The program prints the Vendor/Payee name, Date, Amount, and
"Payment Details" (MEMO). You are correct, some
forms come with the check + 2 vouchers, some with 3 checks in
one page, others with just one check, etc...
When the program was designed we thought that if the program
printed only the "Check" part users would not have to
use just one type of form; they would be able to use forms that
included 3 checks per page, forms with just one check, and forms
with one check and two vouchers. The only problem
with that is that the program does not print the additional
information you mentioned if you choose to forms that include
Some users (using the form with 1 check + 1 or 2 vouchers) just
print the check, detach it from the form, and then print it
again on the "voucher" section. Others using the
form with 3 checks and no vouchers, just print the check and
make a copy of it for their records.
DATA / INFORMATION
I can't open the program; when I try to open the program I
get an error message.
If you have MS Access installed in your computer you probably
will not be able to use this program. Even if MS Access is
closed, it will still try to open/convert the database
(something that should not be done).
Also, make sure ALL other programs are closed when you
install/run this program to avoid any conflicts.
2) The program is not
calculating the totals for my HUD-1. I get an error
message when I create a HUD-1. What's wrong? I can't
change my record?
When you create a new "FILE/RECORD" please make
sure that ALL sections of the HUD-1 have been completed;
If section "1300" is zero, DO NOT leave it blank, go
to line "1301" and enter "0" (the program
will automatically fill out the remaining lines). If you
leave any part of the HUD-1 blank the program will not be able
to produce a correct HUD-1 Statement.
The program will also use the information from the HUD-1 to
automatically create other forms like; HUD-1A, and Closing Costs
Estimate; so make sure you ALWAYS complete the HUD-1 (page-1 &
Our program does not allow duplicate "FILE NUMBER" fields. If you
used FILE NUMBER= "12345", and you do not complete the HUD-1 (as
described above); the next time you try to use that same File
Number on a new record, you may see the kind of problem described
above and you will be unable to make changes to that record.
So in order to prepare a correct HUD-1, make sure the HUD-1 is
COMPLETE (as described above) and that you do not use duplicate
"FILE NUMBER" fields.
Your help menu and examples need to be separated from the
program as your customers have to go through and delete all that
information if they want to start out with a clean program, as I
do. As such, your automatic numbering system then starts out
with several numbers already used.
You are correct. However, when you select
"Compact/Repair Database" those numbers should be
reset. Again, that's something that should be included in
the "Help" section, otherwise, only programmers and
database managers would know that.
Concerning the automatic numbering system, I have noted that
when a record gets deleted, the number also gets deleted. It
would be nice if the number would come back up for use again, to
keep records from getting to confusing and keep proper
chronological order, and automatically place and number the
entry in proper order, no matter when it is typed in.
Select "Compact/Repair Database" ( go to
"Start" > "Programs" > "HUD-1
Settlement Statement" > "Compact & Repair Database"
Can I get a hard copy manual for this program?
We do not offer a "hard copy manual" for this program.
The main reason for that is that nobody wanted to read it
(they would just call us or send us an e-mail). Also,
many of our programs are updated as often as twice a year, so it
is not practical to create a hard copy manual for each version.
I'll call you later today to answer any questions you may
Do you offer this program on a CD?
Yes, you can find this program and other MyRealEstateOffice.Com
programs in the "MyRealEstateOffice.Com
- Compact Disk".
3) Can you create a
"special" version of this program just for me?
We can "modify" the design and/or add new features to the current version
of the program. The registration/license fee for a "special" version
will depend on the number of changes made to the original version, and the number of
copies you would like to register. If we like your suggestions, we may include them
in our regular version of the program. In that case, you would only pay the regular
