Printing a dotted box on a check with SAPscript

We need to print a dotted box to include a dollar value on a check using SAPscript. How would you suggest creating this box?

You can use whichever printable characters you wish for this box. My only suggestion would be to (a) use tab-stops instead of spaces, (b) use a fixed font and (c) make them all centimeter-based. That should minimize chances of things slipping around on the form.

Another option is to add a secondary window over the area on the form where the amount would go. Then use the BOX command to draw a box around the amount in the size of the window. Again, I would use centimeters to set the window/box coordinates and size.
