Hi mindyjolyons, These messages appear when the Account Payable account is chosen on a transaction but the name associated with that account is not a customer or vendor name. I have few things in mind to fix this issue: Add a name in the name field Deposit: Received From General Journal Entry: Name Account Register: Payee Enter Bills: Customer:Job Note: Even if you don't want to use a name, you will still need to use one. It's required by QuickBooks in certain transactions. However, the name can be one you create like General. Check the type of name used on the transaction 1.Click the drop-down arrow in the name field. Review the name type listed on the right of the menu. 2.Go to the Customer Center, Vendor Center, Employee Center, or Other Names List to find the desired name. If the name is listed under the wrong type, you can go to the correct Center and create a new name. Check the type of account used on the transaction 1.Click the drop-down arrow in the account field. Review the account type listed on the right of the menu. 2.Select Lists > Chart of Accounts and find the account. Review the Type column for this account. If desired, you can right-click and select Edit Account to change the account type. Important: You cannot change the type for accounts created by QuickBooks (for example, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Payroll Liabilities). Please let me know if this helps you.
