how do i fix a vendor so when a check is printed it does not appear as a deposit ?

checks for a vendor are being processed as deposit

how do i change it to a payment


Thank you for posting here in the Community, cbarnes.

Let me help you fix the check that you've created as a payment for your vendor. 

When creating a check, make sure to indicate it as an expense (screenshot below), not a bank account. That causes the checks to show as a deposit on your bank register. The Expense tab is for shipping charges, liability, and other expenses not associated with any item in QuickBooks.

Check this article for more information about this: Create, modify, and print checks.

That should fix it. Let me know if you have follow-up questions in creating your checks by leaving a comment below. I'm always here to assist. Have a good day.

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.
