Check register forms

When I print a date range of a register for a check, debit or credit card, I don't like the column widths or arrangement. Can I change or create a template that QB will use when I print? Or even edit those parameters before sending the file to the print queue?

Check register forms

Hi @bbnoonan,

 

I'm here to share insight on your query about printing a check register in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac. 

 

Although there isn't an option to select a custom template to print check registers, you can take these steps instead: 

 

  1. Open a report for that check register you mentioned above.
  2. Edit the width of the columns as you'd like. 
  3. Proceed with printing the register.

Any changes made to the report, such as the width of the columns, will be saved when you proceed to print it. 

 

On the other hand, if you need to print a large number of forms, see this article: Batch print forms in QuickBooks Desktop. Here you'll find the steps on how to tag forms to be printed later, then print them all at once at a later time. 

 

 Got other questions? Place them in the comments below, and I'll be sure to get back to you.

Check register forms

I finally succeeded by opening an Account Quick Report, modifying it, then memorizing it. For each bank account register, I change the filter. Haven't figured out how to print splits and distributions but it is more to my liking. Thanks for the tip.

Great job in modifying and memorizing the report, @bbnoonan.

 

I know a report that you can use to print your split and distribution accounts. Let me walk you through how.

 

  1. Go to Reports, then Accountant and Taxes.
  2. Choose Transaction Detail by Account.
  3. Click the Customization Report button at the top.
  4. In the Search Columns field, type and then mark Split.
  5. Select the Filters tab, then Account.
  6. In the Account drop-down, hit Multiple accounts and mark the splits accounts you wish to print.
  7. Tick OK. Then, OK to close out the Modify Report window.

Once done, click Print at the top then Report to print it. You can follow steps 1-6 for the distribution accounts, and select ALL [account], then OK. I've added this article about customizing reports for details, check out this link here: Customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop for Mac.

 

We also have a guide on QuickBooks for Mac that I'm sure you'll find helpful. It has detailed information for additional tips and ideas.
