Can I change what is shown on my check stubs...specifically I need our customer number/account number on the stub

currently there is a line at the bottom of each stub that shows the bank account name where the money is coming from...I'd like to get that off! ...and I'd really like to have a way to include our customer numbers/account number for each vendor on my accounts payable stubs

Hello sherri,

Thanks for sending us your check voucher concern today.

We can customize the information that displays and prints on a check voucher.  Please note though that QuickBooks prints the following information by default; Payee, Date, Amount, and Memo

Here's how to customize:

  1. Click the Edit menu at the top, then select Preferences.
  2. Select Checking, then click Company Preferences.
  3. Put a check mark in Print account names on voucher.
  4. Remove the check mark in Autofill payee account number in check memo.
  5. Click OK.
This will give you the information you need. If there's anything else you need, don't hesitate to leave me a comment below.

This did not change anything. How do I get my bank's name to stop being in the voucher? It is combining with the vendor # on the voucher.

Hello there @Molon,

QuickBooks Desktop doesn't have an option to remove the bank's name when printing voucher. If the check vouchers are not printing correctly, it can be caused by an outdated Adobe Reader.

Ensuring that your Adobe Reader is updated would be the first thing to do. Then, let’s make sure it’s set up as the default PDF viewer in your browser.

To guide you through the process, please see the second section in this article:

Let me know how these steps work out to you.

Open the Chart of Accounts and Edit checking and shorten the name. For instance:

Checking

Re: Can I change what is shown on my check stubs...specifically I need our customer number/account number on the stub

We wanted to change the check stub too...we found a way to have the account name/number to appear on the stub which is much better.

 

If you use "Enter Bills" [ although there are detail lines with account name and memo etc] and then use "Pay Bills" to select bills to pay and print checks, the account name and details DO NOT show in the stub.

 

However if you instead use "Write Checks" and complete the detail and memo, when the check is printed it WILL show the account name and memo details on the check stub.  If you enter multiple detail line items, they all show yup on the stub when printed.  This is huge for us and hopefully will help others who want this.

 

The small issue is that you won't have those pending bills to pay when due... but something very close.  Instead, when a bill is received, we create a check with the future intended pay date for the date and the check remains "To Print"... and you can easily see them in the register to see what is upcoming and select them using "Print Checks".   We file the paper bill in a 31-day calendar folder and pull out each day's bills, then print the checks for that day.  This is an easy choice for us as the info on the stub is SO helpful.   QB should treat the details entered using Enter Bills the same as Write Checks but until they do this works great.
