How do I change the starting invoice number in quickbooks desktop premier 2020? I just converted from Quickbooks Online and I want to continue my numbering from there.

Thanks for trying QuickBooks Desktop, james61.

 

The program will automatically follow the numbering once you've created an invoice. If you want to continue the sequence, you can use the last number in your first invoice in QuickBooks Online.

 

Before doing so, let's make sure that the template is customized to enter an invoice number. I'll show you how:

 

  1. From the Lists menu, select Templates.
  2. Double-click the invoice template.
  3. Select the Additional Customization button.
  4. Under the Header tab, tick Invoice Number. Make sure to select the Screen and Print column.
  5. Click OK, and then OK.SC 01.JPG

I've also shared these articles on how to create and receive the invoice payment:

 

 

On the other hand, for some How Do I steps, you can go to this page: Help Articles.

 

There it is. I'm always here to help you.

Create a new invoice and set the number to the desired next number.  QB will take it from there.
