How do I quickly edit checks I received?

I entered a bunch of checks today, but I made an error on what I should write on the memo. I wasn't able to find a way to edit the checks in the order I entered them. I had to go to each individual customer and edit it that way. Is there an easier to do this when I make mistakes?

I have the same question for invoices too. Sometimes I would make the same mistake when doing a batch of invoices.

Re: How do I quickly edit checks I received?

Hello there, Blujay22.


For now, you'll have to open the checks individually to edit them. This goes for invoices as well.


However, QuickBooks has an Advanced Find feature. This will help you locate and edit checks/invoices without going to each customers/vendors. Here's how:

  1. While in QuickBooks, press Ctrl + F on your keyboard.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab.
  3. Under FILTER, search and choose Date, then enter a specific date.
  4. Under FILTER again, search and choose Transaction Type.
  5. Click the Transaction Type drop-down arrow, then choose Check/Invoice.
  6. Click Find.

Then, here's how to edit the transaction:

  1. Choose one transaction, then double-click to open it.
  2. Edit the check/invoice.
  3. Click Save.
  4. You'll receive a message, "You have changed the transaction. Do you want to record your changes?", click Yes.

Lastly, press Esc on your keyboard to go back to the list of checks/invoices.


You can check the screenshot below as your reference.
