Recording in check register is in red

Hello,

I am wondering why my text is in red when I am recording in my check register.  It changes to black text once I hit “Record”.  This is a new thing.  The typing used to be in black. 
I am not talking about negative balances which show in red.

Recording in check register is in red

I'm glad you brought this up, Accountancy.

 

Let's use the Rebuild Data tool in QuickBooks Desktop to fix this font color issue in your register. This tool is also used to resolve any possible data damage within your company file. Let me show you the steps on how to perform this below:

 

  1. From the File menu.
  2. Click on Utilities.
  3. Select Rebuild Data/ Verify Data.
    undefined

If rebuilding doesn't work, we can try downloading the QuickBooks Tool Hub. This tool is designed to automatically diagnose and fix common issues within the software.

 

Below are the instructions on how to do it:

 

  1. Close QuickBooks.
  2. Download the most recent version (1.4.0.0) of the QuickBooks Tool Hub. Save the file somewhere you can easily find it.
  3. Open the file you downloaded (QuickBooksToolHub.exe).
  4. Follow the on-screen steps to install and agree to the terms and conditions.
  5. When the install finishes, double-click the icon on your Windows desktop to open the tool hub.
  6. Once the  QuickBooks Tool Hub is open, select Program Problems.
  7. Select Quick Fix my Program.
  8. Start QuickBooks Desktop and open your data file.

To ensure the components are properly updated, please restart the computer after running the tool.

 

Be sure to get back to me if you have follow-up questions. I'm always happy to help. Have a good day!
