I used File Dr & fixed my co file, it said there was an error in payroll and I should send all. I did & I am missing 2 payperiods. How do I re-enter w/out paying?

I also electronically filed Fed withholding so I need to fix that too. Thanks!

I would love to help you out with this, Bonny.

 

There are possible reasons why we have two missing pay periods in QuickBooks Desktop. It could be that it is not the current file that we fixed, or we have opened the other file from the folder where the files are kept.
 

Let's ensure that we are currently accessing the correct file by pressing F2 on the keyboard. It's a way that we can view the file location of the company file. With that, I would suggest opening the folder to check and verify that we are surely using the correct at the moment.

 

If we found out that the appropriate one is fixed and used, we can manually recreate the missing two pay periods in QuickBooks Desktop. We can set up unscheduled payroll under Employees. The steps below will guide you through doing the process:

 

  1. From the main menu, click Employees.
  2. Under Pay Employees, select Unscheduled Payroll.
  3. Find the employee whom you want to create another paycheck. Then, put a checkmark next to the name of the employee.
  4. Click Continue and make sure to review everything such as the pay periods end, check the date and other details to that window.
  5. Then, click Continue at the bottom part of the window.
  6. You can click the Open Paycheck Detail button to review everything from there. ( If you open it, click Save and Close after viewing).
  7. Then, click the Create Paychecks.

Also, select the Check radio button in the Liability Payment window. Then, uncheck inside the To be printed box.
