Information printed on check stub

My accounts are setup with a name and number.  Can I limit the information printed on the check stubs to only the account name and not the account number?

Re: Information printed on check stub

Hello there, Betty.

 

That's a great question! I'm here to share some details about the information that'll show in a check stub. 

 

Regardless of whether you've set up the account with a name and number, you should only see the former when printing check stubs, bill payment stubs, or paystubs. However, if the account number is showing in the check memo field, you'll want to tweak the account preference a little bit. 

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to Edit at the top menu bar, then Preferences
  2. In the left panel, choose Checking
  3. Select the Company Preferences tab.
  4. Remove the check mark in the Autofill payee account number in check memo box.
  5. Click Ok

Check out this article for more details:

You shouldn't see the account numbers in the bill payment stubs and paystubs. 

 

If you're referring to something different, feel free to leave me a message below. I'll be around!

your step 4 is for the Memo, the bottom of the check, such as when you submit a bill payment to the phone company or the credit card company, they tell you to "please note your Account # in the memo." That is seen in Edit Vendor Name, for Account No on the Payment Settings tab.

 

The Voucher is using what you enabled and named the account in the Chart of Accounts. If you named it Checking, the Voucher prints Checking. If you named it Wells Fargo Account #12345, all of this is on the Voucher. So, you either Turn Off seeing account codes, print the checks, then turn on account codes; or, you Stop printing the details on the voucher entirely, which is the same place as @VivienJ describes, Print Account Names on Voucher = remove this option.
