Next date for Journal entry

Please how to I change the next date for a journal entry in Quickbooks desktop enterprise? I just made an entry and hit the save botton and closed then I realized I had forgotten on entry so I open the GL again and made the entry and save and closed.  Then the next entry date move from 3/31/22 to 4/30/22. I went and manually change it back to March and save but each time the next date moved up by a Month

Next date for Journal entry

I'm happy to assist you, @NaPrep. I can share some insight about the auto-recall transaction in QuickBooks Desktop.

If you don't want to recall transactions in the months ahead, you'll need to disable this function.

Here's how:


  1. Click on Edit.
  2. Select on Preferences.
  3. Uncheck on Automatically remember account or transaction information.
  4. Un-tick the Automatically recall last transaction for this name as well.


Refer to this screenshot provided below:



QuickBooks Desktop offers a variety of reports to meet your specific business requirements. Check this article for more details.

If you have any further questions concerning this process, please leave a comment below. I'll be there to assist you. Have a great remainder of your day!

Thank you so much for your quick response.  I didn't have automatically recall last transaction info check though.  So how do I move the next date back to March. I also noticed that when I clicked on the GL that the entries I made are not showing but when I go to edit and searched the amount using "find" it shows it is recorded the the GL so I am confused.
