Sometimes checks can get ruined or damaged outside of
QuickBooks. For example, you might accidentally print over a page of checks or
otherwise tear or damage the checks.
To account for ruined or unusable checks, you can do one of two things:
Skip over the missing check numbers by
resetting the check
counter when you print your next batch of checks.
Enter a check with a $0.00 amount and void the check.
Use this option if you must account for all check numbers. In order to save
the $0.00 amount check, you must enter a payee name and assign an account in
the Expenses section of the check.
