Re: Checks printed out of order. help had smallest number on top now register does not match.

Thank you for checking in with us, drdeb.

I'm here to lend a helping hand with printing your checks in QuickBooks Online.

 

An outdated Adobe version can lead to a problem when printing in QuickBooks Online. You can check this article for more information about Downloading Acrobat Reader.

 

Once you have the most current version, let's go to your QuickBooks Online company and set your printing alignment.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Select the Plus icon (+) on the Toolbar.
  2. Under Vendors, choose Print Checks.
  3. At the bottom of the page, select Print Setup.
  4. The window changes to Print checks setup. Choose No, continue setup at the bottom of the page. On the next screen, select No, continue setup.
  5. Now you’re on Fine-tune alignment. Drag the grid inside the large square to the place where it appears on your printout. This lets QuickBooks figure out how to adjust the alignment.
  6. Select View preview and print sample in the lower left and choose Print at the bottom.
  7. After the sample is printed on plain paper, hold it up to the light against a check and see if the alignment is correct.
  8. If you still need to do some fine tuning, close the sample and then go back to the grid to make adjustments, then print a fresh sample.
  9. Select Finish Setup when your sample’s alignment looks correct.

This does not answer the question and I have found no way to solve this. The checks print out of order in Online. With desktop you could switch this however you can not in QB online. Yet another fail by the online team.

Hello there, @Eternal21.

 

Thanks for joining this thread. Allow me to add to this discussion and help you with printing checks.

 

You can sort out the order by Payee, Order created, Date/payee, and Date/Order created when printing checks in QuickBooks Online. Let me show you how:

 

1.    Click the Plus icon and select Print Checks.
2.    On the Print Checks windows, select the Bank Account containing the checks to print.
3.    Enter the number of the first check in the Starting check no. field.
4.    On the Sort by drop-down menu, filter the list using the options. 
5.    Select the checks to print.
6.    Hit Preview and print.
7.    Follow the instructions in the Preview printing checks window to print the checks.

 

The other option you have is to indicate the page number you wish to print first on the Print window of the setup. However, you must print each page one by one. (Screenshot attached).

 

 

I'm adding some helpful articles with screenshots and video tutorial for your reference: 
•    Print Checks.
•    How to print checks.


That should get you pointed in the right direction. Let me know if there’s anything else you need. I’ll be more than happy to help you out. Take care and have a good one!

This does not work either.

 

1.    Click the Plus icon and select Print Checks.
2.    On the Print Checks windows, select the Bank Account containing the checks to print.
3.    Enter the number of the first check in the Starting check no. field.

I do this but it prints the last check first therefore creating the problem of all my checks being numbered wrong. 
4.    On the Sort by drop-down menu, filter the list using the options. 
5.    Select the checks to print.
6.    Hit Preview and print.
7.    Follow the instructions in the Preview printing checks window to print the checks.

 

You other example of selecting checks one by one is not a valid option as im not going to do this for 100 checks. 

In desktop you can select print checks front to back or back to front. Online doesn't give you this option creating all my checks to be numbered wrong.

Thanks for the prompt response, @Eternal21.


I appreciate your efforts in trying out the steps above. I have some additional troubleshooting steps that can help configure the printer settings and print the checks correctly.


With QuickBooks Online, you have the option to choose Horizontal, Horizontal Reversed, Vertical and Vertical Reversed on the Page order field when printing checks. Make sure to select the right order to print correctly.
1.    From the Print screen, click Multiple.
2.    On the Page order field, select between the given options. (Screenshot attached).

 


Please know that the location of the Page order preference may vary depending on your printer brand. In case you’re having difficulty locating it, I suggest consulting the manufacturer or checking the documentation that came with your printer for the steps in configuring the settings.


That should do it. Please give this a try and let me know how it goes. I’ll be on the lookout for your response. Have a good one!
