Is there a way to make the Memo line stop printing on cheques in QB2019 Desktop?

The only way I can find to make the Memo line not print is to open each cheque before it prints and remove the memo line.  This only happens when there is only 1 bill being paid per cheque.  If you are paying more than one bill on a cheque, no memo line prints.


Hi Goldie34,

I appreciate the clarification and I can shed some light on what's going on. The memo added to a created bill will automatically carry over to the cheque for individual bill payment, just as you've said. Opening up the cheque to remove the memo is the correct process when you don't want it to appear there. The pay bills window is one of the few areas of QuickBooks Desktop that doesn't have customization options, which is why it automatically pulls the information you've entered on the bill and doesn't give you the option to remove it beforehand.

I recommend leaving feedback for the product development team about this feature. Sharing with us helps the team know what sort of changes users are looking for and how we could make the program even better. Click the Help menu and choose Send Feedback Online to let us know your thoughts.

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.
