Error: Document date is earlier than QuickBooks Closing Date preference

When running a financial exchange with QuickBooks Desktop, the following message is returned:

Error: Voucher (or Sales Receipt) #XXX created on MM/DD/YYYY was skipped from processing. Document date is earlier than QuickBooks Closing Date preference.
Why this is happening

A transaction was dated in QuickBooks Point of Sale for Desktop for a date prior to the Closing Date in QuickBooks Desktop.

How to fix it

  5. Click Set Date/Password and clear the Closing Date field.
  6. Click OK and click OK again.
  7. In QuickBooks Point of Sale for Desktop, run a financial exchange. The error should not recur.

If the error persists, mark the voucher as sent to QuickBooks Desktop through QuickBooks Point of Sale for Desktop:

  2. From the Purchasing menu, select Receiving History then choose a voucher. 
  3. Click the I want to… drop-down button and select Show Financial Details.
