401k deduction of 100% net check amount - not gross.

We have a part-time employee who wants the balance of her paycheck - net amount after taxes - to be deducted for her 401K, making her check amount -$0-.  I only see the option of her deducting a % of her gross amount.  


How do I enter that so that it deducts properly in QB Full Service Online Payroll?
