You're on the right track, @SDF1!


Some transactions may not be imported once you convert to QuickBooks Desktop. What you can do is to write a check to record the outstanding balances of your bank account. I'm here to help you accomplish this.

  1. Go to Banking.
  2. Select Write Checks.
  3. Under BANK ACCOUNT, choose your bank account.
  4. Choose a payee and enter the date of your check.
  5. Select an expense account.
  6. Enter the amount of your check.
  7. Click Save & Close.

Once completed, you can now be able to record your outstanding checks. In addition, I've included our detailed guide in writing a check.

It'll be my pleasure to help if you have any other questions. I'm always around ready to help.
