Change check date when check is printed

Changes the date on a check to today's date when you print the check. When this preference is turned off, QuickBooks retains the date that you wrote the check.


  • You write a check on March 15, but do not print it yet.

  • The date on the check is March 15.

  • You print the check on March 20.

  • Now the date on the check is March 20.
