If we are working in a new database and reconciling the bank for the first time, we may not see oustanding checks from a previous database or system. We need to enter the outstanding checks into The Financial Edge.
1. In Accounts Payable, Banks, click Create One-time Checks under Payment tasks. NOTE - If you do not see this option, refer to How to allow One-Time checks to be created in a bank account 2. Create the checks that need to be cleared. Set the status to Do Not Post because the check amounts are already recorded in the General Ledger beginning balance and should not be posted. 3. Continue with the bank reconciliation.
