The first Account is usually a salary Expense Account and contains the gross pay for one pay period.  The other accounts are usually Liability deductions.  You will need to put a negative (-) sign in front of these amounts.  The payroll total will be calculated at the bottom of the window.  This is the Employee's net pay.  If the Employee’s salary changes every period, then enter the most typical salary, as it can be overridden when the check is created.  If all of the information appears to be correct, click OK and close the window.
