Question Where can I can the default Start date of the Week

I'm sure this can be done [probably via some *.ini file] but I would like to change the default Weekly Start Day from Sunday to Monday - it would be much easier when selecting a report period and nominating LAST WEEK rather than CUSTOM and manually posting the dates.

This Week

Further to my previous reply Pippa,
I guess you could always change the default week in the bios if it will let you do it...mine appears to be able to let me do that. Are you familiar with changing the settings in the bios...if not let someone who knows do it for you

No problem, Wherethe..

Food for thought though eh? I cruised thru all the .ini files but just couldn't spot anything likely. Not really an issue, just curious and appreciate your input

Pipa,
I note you use Payroll 9
does the back up files show up in the window when you do a backup from within payroll?
Mine dont but they are there as it asks if you want to overwrite and when viewing thru explorer they show. Just wondering?

Wherethe..

Mine is the same as yours. Yes it does overwrite the exisiting backup file [unless I change the file name to append a date to the end of it], but to view the list of QPB files I navigate to the Backup directory and I can view all the file types.

Cheers

Setting the first day of your work week

QB2004 Premier

Setting the first day of your work week
The QuickBooks Administrator is the only user who can do this.

From the Edit menu, choose Preferences.

From the scroll box, select Time Tracking.

Click the Company Preferences tab.

From the drop-down list, choose the day you want to be the first day of your workweek.

Your selection affects all weekly timesheets. For example, if you choose Sunday, your timesheets begin with Sunday.

Click OK.

Thanks for that Reuel

I do actually have all the upgrades to take me to 2004 Premier, but as yet not taken the plunge.
