Reprint Checks Error

I accidentally clicked the button saying my check did not print correctly, even though it did, so now it is listed under the "file -> Print forms -> checks" tab. How do I get it removed from there?

Reprint Checks Error

I'm here to help remove the check from the print queue, @kenzierae.


You'll need to print the check using plain paper to remove it from the queue list. Here's how:


  1. Open your QuickBooks Desktop company file.
  2. Go to the File menu, then select Print Forms and choose Checks.
  3. Select your bank account.
  4. Mark the check you want to print 
  5. Enter the first check number, and click OK.
  6. Click Print.


That's it! You may want to run and customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop to view all your vendor and sales transactions. This article will guide you through the process: Customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop.

Reprint Checks Error

I have the reverse problem.  I accidentily accepted the check as printing correctly but it did not.  The check did not print at all, so I need to print it using the same check number.  Sorry I don’t have input for your situation.  So how do I print the check with the same check number after it has recorded it?  I am concerned there will be duplicate bill payments.  Thanks for the help.

Hello there, @WREED. Thank you for getting in touch with us here in the Community.


Allow me to share a guide on how to reprint a check with the same check number to avoid potential duplicate bill payments.


To reprint one paycheck, here's how:

  2. Double-click on the bank account designated for payroll.
  3. Double-click on the specific paycheck you wish to reprint.
  4. Click on Print.
  5. Input the check number, then click OK.
  6. Adjust your printer settings and select the desired check style before clicking Print
  7. Upon completion, click Save and Close.


If you need to reprint several paychecks at once, here are the steps to follow:


  1. Go to Lists then select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Double-click the bank account you use for payroll.
  3. Double-click the paycheck you want to reprint.
  4. Choose Print Later, then Save & Close.
  5. Repeat for each check that is not marked to print.
  6. Go to File and select Print Forms
  7. Click on Paychecks.
  8. Select the paycheck(s) you wish to print.
