QB automatically numbers our invoices, but while preparing and saving the most recent, it skipped a number. How can I fix it?
You're in the right place, @SSLLC. I have all the steps on how to correct your invoice number sequence right away.
When you create a transaction, QuickBooks takes the last number you recorded. It will automatically increment this number by one for each new invoice. It's possible that you've deleted that invoice number. You can run the Audit Log report to check if that's what happened.
Click the Gear icon, then select Audit Log.
Click Filter, then check the Transactions box.
Select Deleted/Voided Transactions from the Show drop-down menu.
Under the Event column, verify if the invoice number was already assigned to a deleted invoice.
You can manually enter the skipped transaction number in the Invoice no. field for the next invoice that you'll be creating. This way, the program will automatically follow the sequence and post the correct numbers in the succeeding transactions.
