QuickBooks for Windows: Turn off automatic journal entry numbering

When journal entries for funds transfers sync into QuickBooks for Windows, we will use the next consecutive journal entry number used based on what was last used in QuickBooks for Windows.

For example, if the last journal entry number in QuickBooks for Windows was 10, the journal entry that we would post on the funds transfer would be 11.

QuickBooks for Windows controls which number is used when a journal entry syncs. To disable this automatic number creation, turn off Automatically assign general journey entry number in QuickBooks for Windows. Do this by following the steps below:

  1. In QuickBooks for Windows, click Edit
  2. Click Preferences
  3. Under Accounting, click Company Preferences
  4. Uncheck Automatically assign general journal entry number
  5. Click Ok
