The check management functions are only used if the check number
is different from the payment document number (in the case of
prenumbered checks, for example). If this is the case, the check
numbers are taken from the check lot. The following attributes have
been added to the process of maintaining the check lot:
1. Non-sequential check
If a check lot is marked as being non-sequential, the checks in the
lot do not have to be used in numerical order. Rather it is
possible to issue the checks from one check lot to different
accounting clerks, and to then store the confirmations in the
system as manual checks in whatever order you wish.
