Memo field on bill payment checks

When I print checks for bill payments, the vendor name and address print in the memo field of the check.  How can I change this to either not print the vendor information or to print the invoice # instead?

Memo field on bill payment checks

Hello there, tbook,


You're unable to print bill payment checks without the vendor's information.


As an alternative, you can run and customize the Bill Payment List Report in QuickBooks Online. Remove the vendor's name column before printing.


Here's how:

  1. Go to Reports in the left panel. 
  2. Ensure that you're in the Standard tab.
  3. Scroll down to the What you owe section. 
  4. Click to open the Bill Payment List report.
  5. Select the dates you need in the Report period drop-down. 
  6. Choose the Customize button.
  7. Expand the Rows/Columns drop-down, then click the Change columns link.
  8. Remove the check mark of the Vendor box.
  9. Click Run Report

You can now print a copy of the paid bills by clicking the Print icon above the report's header.


Let me know if you need help with anything else. I'll be around to further assist you.
