Purchase order vendor message field

I adjusted the size of the vendor message field on my custom purchase order template but still can not type more than a limited amount of characters. How do I modify the vendor message entry field to allow more text to fit the size of the message box?

Re: Purchase order vendor message field

Hello there, @QwikBook Dummy,


As of the moment, the Vendor Message field has a maximum number of characters you can enter.


You can add another message through the Memo field since this contains 4095 characters. However, only 96 characters will display on the Transaction Detail report.


To learn more about the maximum number of characters in each field, please check out to this link: Character limitations for fields in QuickBooks.


You can also go through this article for your guidance in creating a purchase order: Create a purchase order.


Let me know if you have follow-up questions with customizing the custom template in QuickBooks Desktop. Just leave a comment below and I'd be glad to help.
