How do i expand check register o include memo line?

Hello there, @gardenerlady.


You'll want to ensure that you remove the checkmark in the 1-Line checkbox in the lower left-hand corner. This will show the Memo field on each transaction.


However, if you'll want to expand the column width we can run a QuickReport and adjust it from there. 


Here's how:


  1. Go to Lists and select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Right-click the name of the transaction.
  3. Choose QuickReport.
  4. Drag the hamburger icon to adjust the column width.

Also, I've provided these helpful articles about banking and how to customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop:


I'll be right here to help you if you have any other questions about running reports in QuickBooks Desktop. Have a good one.
