The General Bank Missing Checks Journal does not provide check/receipt details when you skip a number because the program does not have a corresponding transaction for the entry. However, the General Bank Missing Checks Journal does provide date, payee/payer, amount, and User ID for deleted checks/receipts.
The following column headings appear on the General Bank Missing Checks Journal:
Check or receipt number for individual items or a range of numbers for consecutive items.
Indicates whether item is missing (skipped) or deleted.
Date for entries you delete.
Paid To/Received From:
Payee/payer information for entries you delete.
Total entry amount for entries you delete.
User ID for entries that a user deletes.
The Bank Account Summary always appears at the bottom of the General Bank Missing Checks Journal. You cannot hide this summary.
