Sometimes in QuickBooks, I have seen 100’s or even 1,000’s of invoices or other transactions marked ‘To Be Printed’. How can you clear the ‘To be Printed’ status without printing them? You don’t want to waste all that ink and paper printing something you don’t need. You really do not want to manually edit each one and un-check the ‘To be Printed’ box.
- Unplug the printer
- In QuickBooks, print the transactions to the printer
- Delete the print job from the printer
- In QuickBooks, print the transactions to a PDF printer (you can get CutePDF free if you need it)
- Delete the PDF file
Either method will clear the ‘To be Printed’ status from the invoices or transactions for you — quick and easy!
