Actually our office in the US is printing MICR font on the check which is being printed directly out of Baan. I did the basic setup, the fine tuning has been done on location.
We had to buy the micr font, code it in the report. The micr font should be installed on each pc from which check are going to be printed. Since the bw settings are stored in the registry you have to configure it on each workstation. The link between the font used in the report has to be created by printing a preview, right click the line that should be printed in micr font and link it to the windows font.
You have to fullfill a lot of requirements but it's possible to do it directly out of Baan.
