Change Check Date When Check is Printed in QuickBooks
This option determines the date that appears on checks you print in QuickBooks. This feature is useful because you always want the check date that appears on the check to be the actual date on which you printed the check, not on the date that you created it. For example, you may create direct disbursement checks every Monday, but wait until later in the week to print and mail the checks. If this option is disabled in QuickBooks, all the checks you print will display Monday’s date. To enable the option to change the check date in QuickBooks:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the QuickBooks Checking icon on the left pane and then click the Company Preferences tab.
- Check the box Change Check Date When Non-cleared Check Is Printed.
