Steps To Resolve Common Issues In Previous Reconciliation Report

This article will be helpful for you if you are facing any issues with your bank’s last reconciliation report. Sometimes, the previous bank reconciliation report shows no information or the cleared transactions appear to be uncleared. When you encounter such errors with a bank reconciliation report, you can refer to this guide to get rid of the errors.

Important tip: Make sure you create a backup of your QB company file before moving to the troubleshooting steps for resolving the reconciliation report.

When You Get The Blank Reports

When you get your bank’s last reconciliation PDF report and see that some of the columns are blank or missing, you have to follow the below-given troubleshooting methods:

Method 1

Change internet preferences in Adobe Acrobat Reader. To make these alterations, you can follow the given steps:

  • Open the Adobe Acrobat Reader and click on the Edit option.
  • Select the Preferences option and then tap on the Internet option.
  • Check the Display PDF in The Browser box. If it is marked, unmark it.
  • Once you make these changes, run the reconciliation report.

In case you still find the same issue with the reconciliation report, you can try to repair or reinstall the Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Method 2

Re-generate the same reconciliation report. Try opening the report for the same account as that reconciliation report might be corrupted or damaged. In case of such type damaged reconciliation reports, you can try the following steps to resolve the issues:

Undo all the last bank reconciliation reports

  • In the Banking section of QuickBooks, click on Reconcile.
  • Go to the Begin Reconcile Window and select the required bank account.
  • Click on Undo Last Reconciliation.
  • Once you click to undo the reconciliation, you will get a popup that asks you to create a backup of your QB company file. You can click on the continue option if you have already created a backup of your company file.
  • Once the process is finished, tap the OK button and re-reconcile the transaction.

When Cleared Transactions Appear As Uncleared

When you enter the wrong future date in the Statement Date field of the Begin Reconciliation window, your reconciliation report may display the cleared transactions as uncleared. Make sure you check the future date in the statement date section to prevent such issues. You can try the following steps as well to get rid of such type of reconciliation report issues.

Method 1

Undo the last bank reconciliation report and then create a new reconciliation report again with the proper future date. To do this,

  • Navigate to the Banking section in QuickBooks, select Reconcile.
  • Go to the Begin Reconcile Window and select the required bank account.
  • Click on Undo Last Reconciliation.
  • Once you click to undo the reconciliation, you will get a popup that asks you to create a backup of your QB company file. You can click on the continue option if you have already created a backup of your company file.
  • Once the process is finished, tap the ok button and re-reconcile the transaction.

Method 2

Make no changes to the bank reconciliation report. Once the statement date is passed, the transactions will be automatically cleared.

When The Starting And The Ending Balances Are Wrong

Sometimes you may face a situation when the starting and the ending balance on the bank reconciliation report appear wrong. Generally, this error occurs due to an incorrect statement date inserted in the reconciliation report, or you have inserted the later reconciliation report in QuickBooks before the current reconciliation report.

Note: QB desktop links the date you insert in the statement date section along with the other reconciliation reports you create in it. The starting or beginning balance is the total sum of all the cleared transactions that contain all the previous dates to the current reconciliation report.

When the reconciliation report has a future date or the ongoing reconciliation has a past date, the transactions always assigned date later than the statement mentioned in the current reconciliation does not get assigned to the starting balance on the reconciliation report. This is because of the ending balance calculated based on the starting balance.

Beginning Balance + Deposits and Other Credits – Checks and Payments = Ending Balance

The ending balance will always be incorrect when the starting balance is wrong, and to resolve this, you can undo the previous reconciliation report.

You can follow the below-given steps to do so:

  • Go to the Banking window in QuickBooks and click on Reconcile.
  • Click on the Begin Reconcile option and select the required bank account.
  • Tap on Undo Last Reconciliation.
  • When you click to undo the reconciliation, a popup will appear that asks you to create a backup of your QB company file. Hit continue if you have already backed up the file.
  • Click ok when the process ends.
  • Ensure the last reconciled on a date has changed to the previous date.
  • Erase all the statement services charges, interest adjustments, and balance adjustments from the register.
  • Process the reconciliation report with accurate dates.

When The Statement Date For The Last Reconciliation Is Wrong:

  • Follow the same steps to undo the reconciliation reports.
  • Erase all the statement services charges, interest adjustments, and balance adjustments from the register.
  • Generate the reconciliation reports in sequence.

When The Report Shows Future Statement Date

Generally, QuickBooks remembers the dates inserted in the previous reconciliation report. The pop up might get displayed that states the future statement date when you try to create a reconciliation report. Hence, until that future date is reached, the report will default to that future date.

Important note: Resetting the last date needs the changes in the previous reconciliation report. You have to undo that.

You have to follow the same steps to undo the changes made to the reconciliation report with the one that has an incorrect date and then processes the reconciliation report creation.

Steps To Fix PDF-related Errors

You may get an error when you try to view the last reconciliation report in QuickBooks. This error usually comes with the following error message:

The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running cannot be used to view PDF files in a web browser. Adobe Acrobat/Reader version 8 or 9 is required. Please exit and try again.

The damaged installation on Adobe Acrobat Reader is the major cause behind this PDF-related error. We suggest contacting Adobe customer service to fix this error.

Steps To Create A Recurring Credit Card Payment In QuickBooks

We have covered all the necessary steps to create a recurring credit card payment in QuickBooks. You can refer to the below-given steps to create a recurring CC payment:

Step 1: To Begin With

Things to remember before you start with steps:

  • Multiple processes are used by QuickBooks online for credit card recurring payments.
  • QuickBooks notify you on the primary email address whenever the recurring payment is processed.
  • Only credit cards are used for recurring payments in QB. Checks cannot be used for that.
  • Recurring payments are processed as a non-qual or mid-qual rate. These transactions cannot be swiped.

The beginning of the procedure to set up the recurring credit card payment depends on your decision to use the QB or not.

In case you wish to connect the recurring payment to QB desktop,

  • Select customers in QuickBooks and click on Credit Card Processing Activities.
  • Select the Setup Recurring Payments option.

A signed authorization form from the customer is necessary to set the recurring credit card payment in QuickBooks. You can get this form in the Authorization Form link and give it to the customer to fill up and sign. You can use that form for your references.

Step 2: Generate The Recurring Credit Card Charges

  • Go to the Processing Tools on the QB main menu and tap on Create a Recurring Charge. Else, you can also choose to click on the Create option in the Manage Recurring Payments window.

Step 3: Enter The Existing Customer Or Create A New One

Steps for location and choosing an existing customer:

  • In the Customer field, insert the name till it gets displayed in the list.
  • When you move to select the customer name and the QB is connected, you can see this customer list in the QuickBooks customer list. Otherwise, it maintains a running list of customers which you had created while creating the recurring payment.

Warning: A customer assigned to the foreign currency must not be selected as it can lead to accounting problems. Make sure you select the customer that is assigned to USD.

Steps To Create A New Customer:

  • Tap on Add new and type in the information in the required fields. Refrain yourself from tapping on Add new options in case there are some recurring charges already associated with QB. Even if you do that, the records will not be downloaded properly.
  • You have to add the customer first to QB and then choose it from the existing customers.

Based on the numbers of customers in the QB company file, the timeframe of the added customers varies every time.

Step 4: Insert The Name For The Recurring Payment

To understand the purpose of the recurring payment you create, it is important to name that.

It helps you and your customers to understand the charges. Whenever the payment is made, this name is provided in the email. In the notification sent to the customer, the mentioned items will not appear. Setting up the invoice options in QB is easy, and all the items will reflect in the invoice.

Step 5: Create The Payment Schedule

This step is necessary to set the dates on which your customer gets charged. You have set the start date, frequency, and the end date to create the payment schedule.

Let us understand these factors one by one.

Start Date: This is the date when your customer is supposed to pay. It should be one day later, and it affects the schedule of future payments,

End Date: This date is the last date of the billing cycle. When the customer makes the payment after the end date, it does not get processed. You have the option to leave this field black if you don’t want to fill this information.

Frequency: This is the billing interval. Once you set the frequency, the customer has to make payments in this interval. For example, If the start date of the bill is 1st July and the frequency is one month, then the customer has to make the next payment on 1st August.

Step 6: Select An Invoicing Option

Credit card recurring payments are compatible with QB Company Files. It is possible to access the QB customer list and invoice items, although you have recurring payments post updates to QB automatically.

When you make recurring payment charges to your customer with the proper schedule. However, book management also should not be ignored. To do this, there are the following methods:

For every payment, recurring payment generates the invoices automatically. To do this,

  • To have QuickBooks record the invoicing for every payment, click on the itemized list option.
  • In the Search for Item box, insert the name of the items. You can select the items to add in the total. To map the sum of the total, recurring payments need item prices and sales tax amounts. If we provide that, recurring payments figures the total automatically. In QB, the total sum cannot be adjusted manually.
  • The auto-generated invoices display all the items and prices. (This does not contain the email notifications).
  • The only items that are available in the QB item list can be selected. If the item is not present on the list, you can select such items. In case you want to edit the items, you have to make changes in the QuickBooks directly.

When you want to manually create the invoice, or you have already created the invoice:

You can choose the Amount Only option if you are not generating an invoice for each payment separately. It is not possible to select the items with this option. You can just insert the total payment with the tax included. The Make Merchant Service Deposits section manages to record these payments in QuickBooks.

Step 7: Insert Credit Card Information

  • In the billing information window, you can insert the credit card information that you want to use for the recurring payment.
  • If that is the commercial card, check the This is a commercial card box and type in the Sales tax amount and the Customer accounting code in the designated fields.

Step 8: Send The Notification To The Customer

Tip: you can skip this step if you want. This is optional.

The email that is used while setting up the recurring charges can be used to send the notifications. To do this,

  • Check the Notify My Customer That I Setup This Recurring Payment box.
  • If you cannot see this option, you may have turned off the email notifications.
  • Hit the next button once you check the box.

When the payment is made, the notification is sent to you and the customer. You have the option to disable the email notification.

Step 9: Review And Save The Credit Card Recurring Payment

Before you save the recurring payment, make sure that the entries satisfy the terms and the form that was signed by the customer.

Once you review it carefully, click on Edit to make changes and hit the submit button to save the changes.

Important Note: To allow QuickBooks to synchronize data, you have to rerun the QuickBooks. In most of the cases, the recurring charges occur at the midnight of the payment date.

QBD Enterprise users can use 30 custom fields, and each category can use up to 12 custom fields.

Maximum List Entries Allowed For MAC

Previously, a few of the items mentioned in the following table were not available for the older QuickBooks versions. This is the updated data that tells all information about the limits of list entries in MAC OS.


List name Max number of entries
Chart of Accounts 10,000
Items, including inventory items

(Group items can only contain 20 individual items)

Job Types 10,000
Vendor Types 10,000
Customer Types 10,000
Purchase Orders 10,000
Classes 10,000
A/R Terms and A/P Terms added together 10,000
Payment methods 10,000
Shipping methods 10,000
Customer messages 10,000
Memorized reports 14,500
Memorized transactions 14,500
To Do List 10,000
Names added together (Employees, Customers, Vendors, and Other Names) 14,500


Generally, users can insert up to 10000 names in each list. However, 14,500 is the maximum limit you can consider.

More On Some Practical Constraints

As mentioned earlier, QB is ideal for small and mid-size organizations. By small or medium-sized companies, we mean any company that has the employee strength up to 20 and revenue less than 2 million USD. QB works efficiently with the company transaction data of nearly two years which is helpful to analyze the past and current reports. Users can compare the reports to evaluate their current standings.

Depending on the industry size, QB company files size may vary. More the size of transaction info, more the growth rate of the QB company file. Such transaction information usually includes transaction numbers, related links, and more.

The Condense Data Utility is the excellent troubleshooting method you can use if you are facing any trouble when you cross the limited number of list entries.

QuickBooks’ User Guide can help you learn more about Condense Data Utility. We suggest you go through this before you consider trying this method. Else, you can also connect with certified QuickBooks experts on the toll-free QuickBooks Support Phone Number +1-888-500-2955, and you will be guided on every doubt you have.
