Custom fields in Memorised Transacions not updating with template

I have customized an invoice template to which I have added a custom field.

I have applied this template to previous memorised transactions BUT the custom field is NOT "pulling" the data of the custom field from the database.

 

If I create a NEW invoice with the same template, the data of the custom field IS USED (auto-filled). This tells me that the new Invoice Template IS set up correctly.

 

Why is the new field not being filled automatically in the memorised Transactions since the new template is selected??

 

Please help, I don't want to have to re-do all the memorised transactions I have saved!

 

Thank you in advance

Hello catheoch,

 

Thank you for posting in the Community. I'm here to assist you concerning the memorised transactions in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

When adding a custom field, you may need to recreate the memorised transactions to reflect the changes on your end. For now, there are no available workaround aside from re-doing them in the program.

 

You can use the Create a Copy feature to avoid entering the information all over again. I'm adding a screenshot below for your visual reference:

 

 

For additional reference, I'm also sharing the article about modifying memorised transactions:

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you. The Community will always have your back.

Thank you for your prompt reply,

 

It seems that it now certain I will have to do what I was trying to avoid. I have to redo all the memorized transactions and I have MANY! Smiley Sad

 

It does not make sense to me though. If the template is able to place the new "box" in the form, then it should be able to draw the corresponding data.

 

Oh well.. on with it then

 

Thanks again!

Hi Again,

 

I thought I should let you know that making a copy does NOT work. It still does NOT fill in the custom field.

 

ONLY a new invoice will pull the appropriate data - weird!!!

Hello catheoch,

 

In that case, unfortunately it looks like the system will only allow you to use the new style if you recreate the invoices from scratch. We will pass this on as feedback to our developers.

 

Thanks,
