I'm tired of manually adding transactions to the bank balance after they appropriately showed up in my bank feed transaction list, I assigned the correct account, and then approve approve them. This seems to happen most often with auto status items, but also occurs with Rev items too. Why is this happening and how do I get it to stop!?
Hi there, @adam_harris.
I know how important it is to have control over your bank transactions in QuickBooks Desktop. Let me help you sort this out.
First, QBDT will auto-check all transactions with a match on the list. Second, there might be a bank rule created. To verify if there is, here's how:
You can also turn off the auto-check status through the QuickBooks Preferences. Here's how:
To make sure the downloaded transactions go to the right accounts, you can add and match them.
You'll want to reconcile them to ensure they're accounted for correctly and make your books accurate
Let me know if you have any other bank feed concerns or if you have other questions in mind. I want to make sure I've got you covered. I'll get back to you as quickly as I can if you need further assistance.
Thanks, but this wasn't very helpful. This is happening with transactions that aren't rule based. Even if a transaction disappears that is rule based, there are no rules that tell it to delete and do nothing with it.
Thank you for getting back to us, adam_harris.
Let's check and investigate why your approved transactions aren't showing in QuickBooks Desktop.
We can use the Audit Trail report to check if the transactions are modified or deleted.
If the transaction hasn't been modified and you still can't find it, check your other bank accounts in QuickBooks. It's also possible that it was added/linked to your other account.
You can also run the Verify and Rebuild Utility tools in QuickBooks Desktop. This way, we'll know if there are any possible data damage issues.
I've also added these articles to guide you in efficiently reconciling your accounts in QuickBooks Desktop: Reconcile an account in QuickBooks Desktop.
Please don't hesitate to reach us back for other banking concerns. I'll be happy to assist. Have a great weekend!
The transactions don't show up in the audit list. I have removed auto match and deleted all rules, yet it is still auto matching. These continue to not show up in my accounts when I add or approve them from the feed. These items also will not let me change the account associated with them before adding/ approving.
Thanks for the reply. I'll share some steps that you can perform so we can fix this.
It could be that there's a problem with your company file that's why the downloaded transactions are still auto-matching but not showing up on your accounts. I suggest you run the verify and rebuild tool if you haven't done it yet. This can detect any issue and will fix it.
Follow these steps:
If there's a prompt to create a backup file, simply follow the on-screen to complete it.
Another tool you can use is the QuickBooks File Doctor. This will scan both the software and your company file to fix errors.
