Default check number at write checks screen.

At write checks screen, I would like the check number to be blank as I make many payments online then enter them at that screen and always have to swipe the default check number to erase.  When I click on print my check numbers are always correct.  The check number that appears is an old number, not sure where it came from.

Default check number at write checks screen.

Hi there. @3lleasing.


Thank you for visiting the Community. I can share some insights about the default check number on the Write Checks screen.


QuickBooks Desktop has a sticky setting feature where it will remember the previous information and continue to increment just like the check number. The option to leave the Check Number field blank is currently unavailable.


As a workaround, you can put a check mark on the Print Later box and then update the check number on the Select Checks to Print window.


 Here are steps in printing and updating the check number:

  1. Click File.
  2. Choose Print Forms.
  3. Select Checks.
  4. Update the check number.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Print.




I'll also help you pass along your feedback to our product team, here's how to do it:

  1. Click the Help menu bar.
  2. Scroll down to Send Feedback Online.
  3. Select Product Suggestion.
  4. Select Product Suggestion for the Type of Feedback.
  5. Product Area is optional.
  6. Enter your suggestion.
  7. Click Send Feedback.

That's it. Keep me posted if you have other concern about checks. I'd be happy to help you further. Have a good one.
