Split check


I issued a check with two line items and It was added to the expenses as split twice and twice counted toward expenses in contractor's category. Can I change it to single payment since it is incorrectly showed in total expenses ?

Split check

You can still change it, @chrisg123.


We can delete the second line item and add its amount to the first item line so it will show as a single payment transaction. Let me show you how:


  1. Open your Check.
  2. Add the amount of your two line items and put in it under the first line item.
  3. You can now delete your second line item by clicking the Trash icon.
  4. Select Save and close.


This should now correct your total expenses in your Expenses by Vendor Summary report. You'll also want to review your Check Detail report to double-check the details of the transaction that you've created. Go to the Reports menu and look for these reports.


Please let me know if you have other questions in modifying or editing transactions in QuickBooks Online. I'll get back to you in a moment.
