The Expense at the far left that @Lexiesmemere is referring to is the Expense tab that you can see in the Bill page. For your visual reference, see below screenshot:

As additional option, explore this 3rd party app. You may:

* Pay a vendor invoice with a bank transfer or ACH transfer for FREE.
* Stretch your cash flow by creating up to a 45-day float by paying bills via a credit card, even if the vendor doesn’t accept credit cards.
* Vendors get paid with a physical check or with electronic bank transfers. You choose how you pay.
* 2-way sync with QuickBooks Online (data flows both ways).

I have a check written in 2015  for $513 and assigned to customer A.  I am trying to split that check between 13 Customers.  I  split the check making making each customer had an account and amount assigned.  When I save the check after I split, QB says " you must assign an account".  I have accounts assigned already!  Help please.
