What if my checks printed in reverse order?

Some printers automatically print the last page of a document first (reverse order printing). This can cause problems when you print checks, so you may need to change your printer's properties settings.

To do this task in Windows 7

  1. Click the Windows Start button and click Control Panel.

  2. Under Hardware and Sound, click View devices and printers.

  3. Right-click the icon for your printer and choose Printing preferences.

  4. Find the option that determines whether the first or last page prints first.

    Note: Every printer manufacturer's software is different, so you might need to consult your printer's manual if you can't find this option.

  5. Make and save your change.

If you can't or don't want to change your printer settings, you can load your checks to accommodate reverse order printing.

If you don't want to reprint the checks you just printed, you can edit the check numbers in QuickBooks to match the numbers that were printed.
