Quickbooks 2010 Skipping Invoice Numbers

TLN_CANADA used Ask the Experts™
Hi all,

As the title suggests, my Quickbooks 2010 file is skipping invoice numbers. I am using the latest version of the Canadian 2010 edition. Sometimes it skips 1 or 2 numbers when creating new invoices. Any advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Not much detail there, but here's some thoughts:
1) Credit memos use the same numbering system. If you are issuing credits, then you won't find invoice numbers for those items.
2) Invoices are listed in the GUI by Date, Not by Number. If you are scrolling through the list, you'll see some jumping around by number as the system brings them up in date order.
Invoice number generation is controlled by the backend database. You have corruption and it needs to be rebuilt. Send your file for a free evaluation to www.e-tech.ca (Canada Quickbooks data recovery)
