Hello there, @userimripersiado.


The option to change the Deposit Reference number on the top is unavailable. The detail Wire comes from the bank feed. It's like a transaction for Wired transfer. If you want to add more details, that will be easily seen when pulling up a report, you can enter it to the Memo box below the line items. Here's how it looks like:

It seems like it was manually entered each time but I can't find a way to edit when creating a new bank deposit.

Allow me to provide some clarifications regarding this deposit concern.

  4. Enable the Custom transaction numbers option. 
  5. Press on Save and then Done.

Once done, you can now create an invoice and enter your desired number: 


Utilizing this feature allows you to edit their numbers or titles in QBO anytime you want. To learn more about this process, please see this link: How to change the invoice number on sales forms.


Please let know if you have any other questions or concerns. I'll be right here to assist you. Take care!
