You must enter a number and save a transaction using the entered number. The next number in the sequence will appear the next time you make a GJE transaction. If a transaction is not saved - neither is the GJE number.

In addition to chipoffblock's advice, this is the perfect time to purge any redundancies - like delete accounts and items you don't need and clean up your vendor, customer and other names lists. Once any account, item, or list name is used in a transaction, it can no longer be deleted - only made inactive.

Re: How do I automate number sequencing in journal entries? I have put in a starting number a few times when I made an entry, but the next journal entry window is again blank in the entry number box.

I don't see this option in QB online.  Am I unable to turn this feature off and not assign journal entry numbers?  Am I just looking in the wrong spot?

Re: How do I automate number sequencing in journal entries? I have put in a starting number a few times when I made an entry, but the next journal entry window is again blank in the entry number box.

In QB online, am I able to turn off this auto numbering feature for journal entries?  Everything that has been posted tells me to go to Preferences under the Company tab and there should be a box that I uncheck, but I don't see that in my version.
