Thanks for getting back to us, @mikerippy.

 

Allow me to step in for a moment and share some information about creating invoices in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).

 

I agree with @chipoffblock. QuickBooks currently doesn't have the option to add a vendor to an invoice. You can only do this when creating or entering bills.

 

Just to make sure we're on the same page, can you send a screenshot of what you're referring to? This will ensure I'm providing you with the best information for your concern.

 

In the meantime, you can check out this article for more information about creating an invoice in QBDT.

 

I'm looking forward to your response, @mikerippy. Have a good one.

Ok, to make sure I understand you correctly, lets go over QB's terminology.

An charge from your vendor is a Bill in QB's

A charge from you to your customer is an Invoice.

In a bill you can only select vendors, and in an invoice only customers.

In a Check you can select either vendors or customers.

So what do you mean by " vendor column on invoice"?

Thank you for coming back to the QuickBooks Community, novannd.

 

I’d be delighted to help print a check showing the vendor’s name.

 

To make sure I’m on the same page, I need to gather more details about the issue.

 

Did you create a customized invoice and added another column? On the Checks page, are you referring to the Customer:Job column?

 

I appreciate any details you can provide. Looking forward to hearing from your response. Thanks in advance.

Ok, when you make an Invoice for a customer, there is no standard column for Vendors. If you have a column called vendors, it must be a custom made column, (or a standard column that has erroneously named 'Vendor") and will not populate the vendor name, you would have to type it in there.

But something tell me we may not be talking about the invoice form??

Can you post a screenshot of the form you are working in?

 I thought that the (pay to the order of) line on a check, which shows up on the item/labor colum on my invoice,could show the payee somewhere on the invoice so i don't need to type it in manually on every check in the memo? is it possible to create a column on invoices to show the payee in thee same line as the item?  

Thanks for your help
