Stop Memo from Printing On Check?

Client would like checks printed to vendor to not include information in the memo field.  The memo can't be blank either as it is used in reporting but the information is not suitable for the vendor.

Is there an option to keep the memo from printing on the check?

 

Thanks

Stop Memo from Printing On Check?

Thanks for posting your concern in the Community, @wdpcpa3.


I’m here to share some information about printing checks without the Memo field. 


At this time, keeping the Memo field from printing on the checks is unavailable. This is one of the few areas that don’t have customization options in QuickBooks Desktop since it automatically pulls up the information you’ve entered on the bill.


In the meantime, open each transaction and manually remove the memo before printing. The following are the only information you can customize to display and print on a check:

  • Print account names on the voucher.
  • Change the check date when non-cleared checks are printed.
  • Start with payee field on the check.
  • Warn about duplicate check numbers.
  • Autofill payee account number in the memo.

You may refer to this article for more information: Customize a check voucher or pay stub.


That should do it. Reach out to me if you need anything else. Have a good one!

I have another question.  Why Intuit would ever create software that lets you put 75 characters in a field on a form that is only designed to create a print file and then limit the print to 35 characters?  I don't really know the character count but I do know that not all of the characters that I am allowed to put in a memo field will not print on the check.  I would think it would be a wise thing to limit the number of characters you can enter into a field to the same number that will actually print. Intuit never fails to amaze me, Turbo Tax is such well operating software but the mothership QB is a whole different story.  Thanks for listening to the rant, maybe you feel the same way and want to rant to the developers about such a poor design.
