Print payee name in the address window portion of the check?

I'm on Quickbooks Desktop Mac.

Payee name prints correctly on the 'pay to' line of checks, but only the address prints in the area that shows through the window of the envelope.

I've worked in Quickbooks Online and it prints payee name and address in the address window. How do I make Quickbooks Desktop Mac do that?

Answer

Let me address this, please: "So...it works on one of your products."

 I really do Teach this. I teach using the PC product, and I show how the different ways you input field data controls what goes where. You Control this, not the program. Examples:

In Vendors, in the PC Desktop program, if you skip over Vendor Name and fill in Company, that populates above and below, as both the Vendor name and the first line in the address block.

And then you Tab Out. The next field is next, and until you Tab out, this relational database cannot evaluate what you entered. So, for instance, if you tend to use the mouse to Hop about, you are not using the Tab function to both remind you to evaluate if what comes next, matters to the data you need to enter, if the program confirmed this is not duplicate and you are not creating a conflict, and it stores what you put, because you tabbed out.


So, "working" or not working tends to be the Pilot, not the program. How it works, depends on how you use it.


I have no idea what this means to you, because it is not Bastardize: "If I bastardize my database and enter the vendor name in the address field (as you suggest), when I migrate the QB Desktop Mac company over to QB Online, I will essentially need to undo everything."


Here's what you first asked:


I didn't enter everything in the right place, so why is the missing info also not printing?

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
