Answer

What is happening?

  • Lists appear out of order

  1. Close any application running on the computer
  2. If you currently have QuickBooks open, exit/close the software and re-open QuickBooks and select the data file you wish to perform the verify and rebuild
  3. Open the Write Cheques window ( go to Banking menu > Write Cheques or press Ctrl + W)
  4. Click into the Pay to the Order field on the cheque form so that the cursor is flashing
  5. Press Ctrl + L on your keyboard to display the Names List
  6. At the bottom of the list, select the check box Include Inactive or Show All
