I am setting up a new QB Desktop file. The Check Register is recording ALL entries as Journal Entries. In the Set up Process I was only given the option to select an Equity Account. Since it is an LLC, I selected Member Equity. In all my other QB files I have a Transaction Register. Can someone guide me on how to convert from the JE Register to a Transaction Register.
Since I only had a few transactions entered I decided to simply delete the File and start over. I was hoping that you were right that I had selected the Detailed Start option and that by not making that mistake again all would be fine. Unfortunately, I ran into the same problem. The Check Register only gives me Equity options and then all entries are recording as Journal Entries. There must be something I'm doing wrong. I have several other Files and have never had this issue. Thanks for guidance.
Unfortunately this didn't work. The Check Register is still "stuck" as a General Ledger Register. I even deleted the File and started over in the hopes that I mistakenly selected the Detailed Start option. Looks like I didn't. When I set up the new File I still had the same issue. Other suggestion to convert the Check Register to simply a Transaction Register and not one that records every transaction as a Journal Entry? Thank you very much!
