What does this mean {EE1} when it's by a vendor name

Greetings, @Victoria_R.


Thanks for bringing your question to the Community. After some thorough research and testing, I've not been able to find any instances in which QuickBooks will add {EE1} besides a Vendor's name. Is there anyone else with access to your QuickBooks that may have intended on specifying a type or class to this vendor? If at all possible, please include a screenshot of the string of text so I can help you get to the bottom of this.


Please don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything else I can do for you in the meantime. Thanks again, I'll be watching for your reply.

I suspect it means that this vendor is also an employee. You cannot have two contacts with the exact same name, and there are some functions for which you cannot use and employee, like creating a bill for reimbursement of expenses. So a common practice is to put something after the name to make it different from the employee name.
