Hello @kenneth-eaztglob,

 

Before we can accomplish your goal for today, can you tell me more about your initial post? Are you trying to create a new set of accounts and use them to track your sales transactions?

 

Keep me updated in the comments. Hope to hear from you soon. Stay safe!

Thank you for clarifying your concern, @kenneth-eaztglob.

 

It seems that you're trying to continue the number sequence when you migrate to another QuickBooks Online (QBO) account. In this case, you'll need to enter the following number sequence once after migrating. This way, QuickBooks will continue the number sequence automatically. To do so, let's first turn on the Custom transaction numbers feature. Here's how:

 

  1. Sign in to your QBO account.
  2. Click the Gear icon, then select Account and Settings.
  3. Select Sales from the left menu.
  4. Go to the Sales form content and turn on the Custom transaction number.
  5. Click Save, then Done.

 

Then, by the time you create a new transaction in QBO, it will follow the last sequence number you used. Also, I've added these articles to learn more on how to change and customize your sales forms in QuickBooks:

Hi,

 

Tired to turn on already but the page did show show me any input for me to input the next running numbers.

 

Still back to square one.

Thanks for adding more information about your concern, kenneth-eaztglob.


I recognize the importance of having accurate information on transactions. This allows you to track gthem easily in QBO.

 

Let’s create a dummy invoice. Then, input the desired number for the correct sequence to show on your transactions.


QuickBooks automatically assigns the invoice number based on the last transaction. It increments by one each time you create a new entry. I’m adding screenshots for visual reference.cst trn.png cst trn1.png

Aside from personalizing the transaction number, you can also tailor the look of your sales forms in QBO. To guide you in the future, check out this article for detailed instructions. It includes a video and answers to frequently asked questions about the feature: Customise invoices, estimates, and sales receipts in QuickBooks Online.
