I printed a cheque but I took the cheque out of the wrong bank. How do I change that

Hi there,


Mistakes like these are common but don't worry, I'll be happy to help untangle this so you can have the correct bank account showing on the cheque. 


In order to correct the bank account, open up the cheque in question, click on the drop-down arrow under the Bank Account heading and select the correct account. From here hit Save and close so it saves. Let me know if this works. 


Otherwise, creating cheques in QuickBooks Online lets you track expenses, and helps organize your chequing account and bank statement reconciliation.


Here's how to write a cheque in case you need the steps again:

  1. Select + New.
  2. Under Supplier, select Cheque.
  3. Choose the Payee from the drop-down list.
  4. Specify the Bank Account where the money will be withdrawn.
  5. Complete the cheque fields. (Note: The Memo field is optional. Text you enter in the Memo field appears in the Account history, on printed cheques, and on reports that include this cheque).
  6. Select the Print or Preview option if you want to print the cheque.
  7. Select Save and close or Save and new.

Tip: If you have a lot of cheques to write, it is easier to either enter them from the Account history, or download transactions directly from the bank.


Give this a try and if you have questions, I recommend contacting our support team using this link.
