Can't Void Check


G

Guest

I used the Quicken Bill Payment system to send a check. The check got
lost in the mail or whatever. When I attempt to stop payment the
check (which has that yellow lightening by the number) I am told it is
too late. Fine except that I can not Delete or Void the transaction
either from within Quicken.

Any suggestions on dealing with this? I don't care if I delete the
transaction, void it, or put a "correcting" transaction in the
register.

I have reissued a replacement check via the Quicken online system.

Did you try "cancelling" the payment in Quicken?

Online > Online Center > Payments (tab) > (select fi) > (select
account) > (select payment) > Cancel Payment

Another approach. I use BofA (All Other States) for online
billpay; I have been able to cancel a payment by sending BofA an
email (from their web site) asking to have a "stop payment"
issued for an online payment that had been mailed.

Assuming you've called your bank and had payment stopped (assuming
you're concerned about that) you could set the date on your computer
forward so that it's past the date on the check then delete it and set
the date back. Or you could just wait for the pay date on the check...

Just out of curiosity, what does this Quicken Bill Payment system cost you?
If it costs even more than ONE CENT, it costs you more than the system I
use: pre-authorized debits. NOT ONE CENT they cost me.

It is not always the case that the cheapest is the best nor preferable.
Sometimes you get what you pay for. Sometimes paying a little bit of
money for convenience is worth it. YMMV.

I most certainly agree with that statement: sometimes one does get what they pay for---sometimes they get even less. However, over the years I have migrated virtually all of my payments...and payments to me...to fully automated electronic banking. To date, it has always worked fine...saving me thousands of hours, and lots of money in envelopes, postages, etc..

John I did try the Online Center approach and that is the one that was
blocked. THe check was dated for delivery July 13 so I suspect the
dates were killing me. I also tried right clicking and ctrl-D with no
luck. Oddly enough after I posted, I went to the menu and was able to
delete it under Edit. I did get a good set of warnings pointing out
this was an online payment. I use Quicken 2005 currently.

Initiating bill payments from Quicken does not necessarily cost anything -
the cost is dependent on your financial institution.

For MANY years (close to a decade) I initiated payments from within Quicken
for no cost - but just recently Wachovia instituted a fee schedule for
initiating payments through Quicken or Money.
If it costs even more than ONE CENT, it costs you more than the system I
use: pre-authorized debits. NOT ONE CENT they cost me.
Pre-authorized debits with individual accounts have a few disadvantages,
IMO. Primarily, you need to update information with more than one vendor if
you change banks, change payment amounts, or want to cancel an account.

Using a bill-pay system, whether through personal finance software, or
through your financial institution, keeps all the authorizations in a single
place. While Wachovia instituted a fee schedule for payments initiated
through software programs, they added a free bill payment service at their
website.

Many banks offer this free service, and Quicken can still be used to keep
track of the transactions.

Well I'm here to tell ya son, the other statements are equally as true.
In time you may learn this too...

As have I - *for the last 12 years!* Though I do pay a fee. Bottom line
is that to me it's worth it.
