MAS 90 / MAS 200 Bank Reconciliation - Clear checks by importing from a file

If you use MAS 90 or MAS 200, do you spend time clearing checks in Bank Reconciliation each month by checking the boxes as compared to your bank statement?  If so, one time saving tip might be to use the "Auto Check Reconciliation" tool available in version 4.40 (as of product update 2).

This utility allows you to take a simple CSV file, containing as few fields as account number, check number, and amount, and import it into MAS 90/200 in order to clear checks.
