X symbol on report

I received .pdf's of transaction reports to review.  I do not know what version of QB was used and would like to know what the "X" symbol in the CLR column represents.

X symbol on report

Hi there, bookie13. 


I'm glad you've reached out to us. Let me help provide some insights about the symbol X in Clr column in QuickBooks Desktop. 


The symbol in the Clr column on the report, there are deleted transactions in your account. You can double-check it through an audit trail to verify if there was a transaction deleted or modified.  


In case you need more help regarding other tasks in QuickBooks Desktop, you can check our articles here. Make sure that the topic is set as "QuickBooks Desktop." 


Don't hesitate to leave a comment below if you have any other questions about the report. Have a good one.

X symbol on report

They can't be deleted transactions, they are showing in the transaction report for the entire year but only in the CLR column of the bank account.  

The check mark in this column means the bank reconciliation are completed and this items are reconciled.

I don't know what the "X" in the CLR column on the transaction report for the bank account means.


Thank you,



X symbol on report

Thanks for getting back to us, @bookie13.


You may be referring to the asterisk symbol (*) in the CLR column instead. If so, this means that someone has started a reconciliation and checkmarked this transaction but unable to finish it.


Other symbols that you might see in the report are:


  • Lightning Bolt - means this transaction has been verified by the Banking Feeds download process.
  • Checkmark - means that this transaction has been entered, verified, marked as Cleared, and the reconciliation was completed.


In case you want to learn about the available columns and filters in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) reports, I suggest checking out this article: Customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop.


Please leave a comment below if you're referring to something else or if you have any additional questions. I'll be happy to answer them. Have a wonderful day!

Hey there,


Not referring to a lightning bolt...looking at a bold X in the CLR column for the bank account in the transaction detail report...thinking someone started the bank reconciliation but did not reconcile.


Any other thoughts from someone who works with QB?

Thanks for getting back to us, bookie13.


Aside from the details provided by FritzF, those are the symbols that you can see under the CLR column.


Do you have screenshot of the bold X mark under the CLR column? What QuickBooks version are you using? What specific report did you pull up?
