Link a written check to a bill

Hi,

We use quickbooks desktop. I am trying to link an already written check (that did not get applied to its bill) to its existing bill. The bill comes up as unpaid. I don't know how to make it "paid".

Hope it makes sense.

Thank you

Welcome to the Community, @Collier.

 

Normally, if you Write Checks to pay for existing bills, the two transactions won't be linked and the bill remains in an unpaid status. There is a couple of available solution to link your check to your bill depending on the situation that applies to your end.

 

You may refer to this article for the steps by step process to link your check to your bill: Bill shows as unpaid after writing a check in QuickBooks Desktop.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with. Have a great and take care.
