Why is the company name (1st line) and their "display as" name (2nd line) both printing on checks in QB Online? The box has been checked to only print the display name.

There is only room on our checks for one name. However, we would like to record the company's full legal name as well as their dba name. Is deleting the first line of the vendor's name our only choice in the online version of QB?

Great to see you here, @drich3,

 

When you create a check, both company and legal name will populate on the Mailing address field. The option to use display name when printing pertains to the Payee name to be used on the check.

 

If you need to only print a single name, you will need to delete the information manually while processing the check. You can also remove the other name on the vendor's profile and put it at a later time.

Your answer was the solution I needed.  I just moved the company's legal name to the notes section of the vendor "card".
