As you have noted, there are several assignments in the standard PrintBoss form. This one: #Assign 'VendorName', '', 0.250/.1, 0.260/.08, LRBW is the assignment for the Vendor Name that you referenced in the first post. Once the information has been captured and assigned a variable name (in this case VendorName), it can be placed anywhere on the check.

The same type of assignment has to be made for the Vendor ID. The Vendor ID must first be included on your initial Timberline report, the one that is printed to PrintBoss. If the Vendor ID is on the originating report, once it is printed to PrintBoss you can then capture it and assign it to its own variable. The process for making the assignment is described in Assigning and Capturing Text in PrintBoss Forms.

We have Timberline software. I have found this.
*** DO NOT CHANGE THIS SECTION ***
The DateFromShiftedCheck is used to test whether this is in first or later
account group in a multi-account batch of checks.

#Assign DateFromShiftedCheck, "", 3.546/.1, 5.155/.08, W

These assignments are very broad vertically in order to pick up
either the standard location, or to pick up the checks that are
.25inch up the page because they are from batches with multiple
accounts.

#Assign DocBank2, ÷÷, 0.253/.1, 3.395-3.845, LRB1W
#Assign DocBank3, ÷÷, 0.253/3.5, 3.395-3.845, LRB1W
#Assign 'DocDate', '', 3.637/0.500, 5.050-5.600, LRBW
#Assign 'DocNo', '', 5.522/0.400, 5.0550-5.600, LRBW
#Assign 'DocAmnt', '', 6.250-7.370, 5.050-5.600, LRBW
#Assign 'VendorName', '', 0.250/.1, 0.260/.08, LRBW
#Assign 'Pay', '', 0.250/.1, 4.557-5.007, LRBW
#Assign 'WrdAmnt1', '', 0.676/0.500, 4.787-5.239, LRB1W
#Assign 'WrdAmnt2', '', 1.116/0.500, 4.812-5.277, LRB1W
#Assign 'DocRecip', '', 0.250-3.000, 5.387-6.500, LRB1W
#Assign 'PayeeAds1', '', 0.226-2.978, 5.604-6.722, LRB1W
#Assign 'PayeeAds2', '', 0.201-2.953, 5.629-6.747, LRB1W
#Assign 'PayeeAds3', '', 0.201-2.953, 5.604-6.722, LRB1W
#Assign 'PayeeAds4', '', 0.239-2.990, 5.616-6.734, LRB1W

The answer depends on which accounting software you use. The first question would be, "Is the vendor ID part of the raw report generated by the accounting software?" If the vendor ID is there, it can be captured by PrintBoss, a variable created and then printed on the check stub. Please see Assigning and Capturing Text in PrintBoss Forms for additional information.

Currently we have the vendor name in the top left corner. I would rather have the vendor ID. Is this an easy fix? The vendor name is already on the Pay To The Order Of line. Having the vendor ID would speed up entering or searching.
