QuickBooks Desktop: Turn off automatic journal entry numbering

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

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

QuickBooks Desktop 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 Desktop. Do this by following the steps below:

  1. In QuickBooks Desktop, select Edit
  2. Select Preferences
  3. Under Accounting, select Company Preferences
  4. Uncheck Automatically assign general journal entry number
  5. Select Ok
