What does the "Billable?" checkbox in the expenses pane of check writing module do?

When I write a check in qb, should I *not* enter an amount?  Instead, should I be using the expense panel below?  What does the "Billable?" box do?  Whether I check it or not, it seems to make no difference on the check.

Thanks!

QB qill then fill in the amount field on the check based on what's in the lower panel - correct?

Yes

Then, if I were to check off "billable" on one of those lines, a $500 charge would appear on that customers' invoice - correct?

When you invoice this customer/job QB will prompt you that there are time/cost expenses associated. Select the time/cost icon at the top of the invoice window, time, expense, item and milage are listed, select what you want on the invoice.

Ok, so if I am writing a check to a subcontractor who worked on  2 customer jobs and I'm paying him $1000 total ($500 per job), then I would leave the amount on the check blank, drop down to the expense panel, choose my subcontractor account, drop down the customer job in the customer column and enter $500 for each line.  QB qill then fill in the amount field on the check based on what's in the lower panel - correct?  Then, if I were to check off "billable" on one of those lines, a $500 charge would appear on that customers' invoice - correct?
