Why is QB asking me to select an account for this transaction when I already have entered an account name?
Welcome and thank you for posting here in the Community, @isaachm.
To give you the right amount of information and assist you further, may I know what specific area and transaction you're working with QuickBooks while you're asked to select an account even if you've already entered an account name?
It's possible that you've chosen the incorrect account reason that you're asked to select an account again. Make sure to select the correct account when creating transactions. If you're creating a check, select an expense account, if you're creating a bill, you can either select expense or accounts payable and so on.
However, if you're referring to something else, feel free to add a comment below. Have a good day!
