Using Payroll Inquiry, you can view an employee's check information for year-to-date, lifetime-to-date, or specific date ranges. You can also verify that checks have been posted for an employee. Information displays in the Inquiry window after payroll is posted, but you cannot edit this information in the Inquiry window.

You can also print the Payroll Inquiry Report, which displays a specified employee's payroll information. On this report, you can display year-to-date (YTD) or lifetime-to-date (LTD) earnings, or you can indicate a range of dates.
