Some of my check are categoriezed as Splits and it should only be one category.

Some of my company's checks become marked as Split when there should only be one expense account/category.  Q1: Why does this happen?

I am unable to change to change them to the approproate expense category.  Q2: How do I make the change?

Please see attached 3 screen shots.

It's happening because the first row of the check detail is skipped and so are using two detail rows, though only one has an account and amount. Delete the first and empty row to avoid the "split" in reports.

 

Bank feeds is defaulting that way because it's reading in the last transaction with both lines of detail as a default.

Thanks for the repsonse.  Ok that first part of what you said makes some sense, but how do I delete the first and empty row now?  See screen shot for the RMB menu options.Split 4.jpg

Oh I think I figured it out.  I must delete the second row entry first then add the same information back on the first row.  Thanks BigRed!

To delete a transaction row/line, pick Edit | Delete Line from the QB menu or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Del.

Thanks, I'll try that.

So this entry is also marked as split.  It has two items but their account categories are the same.  What can be done about this?  I'd like it to show up as Product Costs (COGS) in the P & L Reports.

Nothing needs to be done. Nothing can be done because it's a split transaction - a transaction that has more than one detail row.
