Memo field not printing on checks

Hi. I just took over data entry for my company since our bookkeeper quit. So please bear with me. We are on QB enterprise desktop. I enter vendor invoices via enter vendor bills and was told to enter vendor account number and invoice number in the memo field. The checks printed used to print that on the checks but not anymore. The only change I made was to update the vendor screen with their account numbers. They were all blank before. The checks now only print the account number. I thought I was keeping things clean by entering the account numbers.


Do I have to delete the account numbers to get the checks print out memo field on each invoice? 


Thank you
