This morning I decided to pay a few invoices and when I clicked on "check register" it takes me to a chart of accounts window, accumulated depreciation. When I click on write checks it says I have no bank account.  My CPA's office is closed. quickbooks help is no help. They have no on line help and I have searched FAQ This is a desktop 2017 version.
