Default writing a check?

just a quick question about the right/wrong way to write a check.

In the place where you write out the amount my fiance does it like.... fifty dollars and no cents

I do it like fifty dollars 0/100.

Does it matter which way it is done?

I do it like "Fifty and no/100" (not adding in "dollars" because it says that at the end of the line for me). My grandma used to write "Fifty dollars exactly", I don't know why.

I was taught to do it 00/100, but I think as long as the amount intended is clear, the bank is going to have no problem with it.

I was taught no/100 or 00/100 but as long as the intention is clear it doesn't matter. I worked as a teller, and the only thing I know for sure is that the bank will go by the written amount not the numerical amount. Not that that helps, but you'll want to make sure the written amount is clear.

I've seen both used equally. I've just always been partial to no/100s myself. I've seen the "exactly" used before as well. And sometimes when I've been in a rush, I just write it like "Fifty dollars------------------------". There is no right or wrong way. It's simply so that it's legible, understandable, and you want something filling in the excess line so the amount cannot be changed. If you wrote say "Ten" and put nothing else, someone could write "thousand" after it. So you want that line slashed out or filled up with no or 00/100s or even "exactly".
