Off-Cycle Assign Check Number -- error "Check # not the next in sequence"

With the help of this Forum, I was able to get payroll results to display in Assign Check Number tab AND finance added a lot of check numbers for me to use. But I get error "Check number not the next in sequence" even though check numbers were just created and I'm using the first value (FYI: second value doesn't work either. Prior to finance adding check number for the correct company/bank OR if a use the number which is 1 BEFORE the number in the range Finance created, I get a different error -- "Check number is invalid"). Any ideas what we're doing wrong? This is our first time using the ASSIGN CHECK NUMBER feature.

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP!

    Hello Mary,

    Use the Transaction FCHI and check what is the "Number Status" for the Paying company code, House Bank and Account ID combination and use the next number for the Account number, this will solve your issue.

    With Regards,

    The reason is you are using a regular check lot. Checks issued manually need to be dealt separately.... in order to create a link between the check no and the payment doc. In order to keep the use and management of manually created checks separate from those created automatically, a separate number range should be reserved for manual checks. Ask the FI person to create a manual checks lot...usually its a best practice to create a manual check lot begin with M and followed by numbers...but this is not mandatory.

    In addition to taking the advice listed here, I also had to update the Payroll Off Cycle IMG titled "Make settings for check printing with manual num. assignment"
