Date Warnings in QuickBooks
You can configure QuickBooks to display a warning if you enter a transaction that is a certain number of days in the past or future. Most of the time the warning appears because a user made a typo when entering the date. If the incorrect date is allowed to remain in your books, it affects reports. To configure QuickBooks to display the warning:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the Accounting icon on the left pane to open the QuickBooks Accounting Preferences, and click the Company Preferences tab.
- Choose the Date Warning Range you want for past dated transactions and future dated transactions (QuickBooks sets the default warnings at 90 days in the past and 30 days in the future) and check both boxes.
