Despite setting the date to the correct future date on the cheque, once I click "print" the date reverts back to today's date and is subsequently printed on the cheque.I've read numerous posts about printing postdated cheques and it doesn't get any easier than changing the date then clicking "print", so what's going on?

Postdating a check refers to writing a check but putting a future date on the check instead of the date that the person writes the check.
People typically postdate checks intending that the recipient not deposit or cash the check until a later date, because payment is not due until that later date. How can a prosecutor win a guilty verdict if the prosecutor must prove that the defendant had the intent to defraud the recipient of the postdated check?
Conviction for a Class A felony carries a maximum of 60 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
In addition to criminal penalties, state laws authorize civil fines for writing bad checks.
For example, Maine law allows the presumption of the intent to defraud with a bad check where the writer of the check fails to make good on the bad check within five days of receiving notice that the check bounced; the same statute also presumes intent where the defendant does not have an account with the bank that the check is drawn on at the time the defendant writes the check. Class 2 misdemeanors carry up to 12 months in jail and a $1,000 fine, while Class 1 misdemeanors carry a maximum of 18 months in jail and a $5,000 fine.
