quick way to enter series of checks


P

ps56k

Using Quicken 2012 - for investments & checking acct downloads.

We seemed to have misplaced a booklet of 30 checks....

Happen to notice this as my wife tends to accidently skip checks
while she quickly fumbles to write one at the grocery store.

Ran the missing check report - and noticed her random misses.
But - also noticed an entire 30 check booklet appears missing.

I'd like to enter all these checks into the register,
so if they ever get downloaded - I'll see it as a mis-match.
Suggestions... vs brute force of typing 30 individual check entries..

Checks are so 19th century. Get yourself one of those credit cards
which has NO fees but pays YOU back a percentage of your purchases.
Probably only .001 per cent of my transactions are by check. So
passé!

Are the checks ones that were written and not recorded? If so, you will
have to wait until the checks clear and you'll have nothing to match
against. If not, when you find them, just use them. Quicken will
automatically adjust the next check number.

No Good Deed -
Goes Unpunished

==============================
Alternatively, just enter one setting the appropriate check# with some
"payee" (I use a question mark) with a zero amount.
I personally leave the Category empty but you could assign some bogus one to
cut down on prompts.
After that just keep entering "checks" with a tab, keypad plus, tab,
question mark and enter.
You should be able to get them all in less than a minute - not a big deal.

BTW - it turned out my wife grabbed a packet of checks out of order -
so it appeared they were "missing"...
UNTIL - one just popped up, and it matched the DUPLICATE entries I had
manually entered...
So, just deleted all the manual entries I had just entered :)

Spammers hardly ever see look for replies to their spam, so you
probably won't see this. But for others here who may not realize it,
let me say that one of the biggest advantages of using Quicken is that
you hardly ever have to write checks any more. For me, I pay one
vendor in cash and one by check; almost everything else is now
electronic.

Ken, how much are you paying Quicken/Intuit every month to pay
those bills and do you still have to spend time EVERY MONTH
activating the payments or have you joined the 21st century and
automated everything, as I have? P.S. I don't pay one cent in
service charges to Quicken or the bank.

Zero!

Most of my payments *are* automated, and I have to do nothing. But not
everything can be automated.

P.S. I don't pay one cent in
service charges to Quicken or the bank.


P.S. Neither do I!

Good to hear it! I find it absolutely amazing how many people are
STILL lining up at
the bank to pay bills or dicking around with checks, envelopes, and
stamps!
People like us must be saving hundreds of hours a year, never again
having to
do that drudgery. The best of the season to you.
