I need to be able to write a long identification for the Payee in the "Pay to the Order of" line. i.e.: John Doe, Personal Representative for the Estate of Jane Doe". Is there a way to make two lines of typing instead of one? Actually the one line could be a lot longer but it cuts off after only 41characters.
Tried QB but haven't received an answer and I am distributing funds today (Sunday!)
Hello, I am pleased to help you.
Unfortunately, the Payee field length cannot be changed. In fact, all of the QuickBooks character field lengths are fixed.
The options are too abbreviate the name; for example, use Rep. or leave the payee field blank by placing a period in "print on check as" and then handwriting the name on the check go back in to QuickBooks afterwords and correct.
If I can assist you further please let me know.
I'm sorry you expected more, as stated the Payee field length is fixed by Intuit and the user is unable to alter; this includes being unable to add a second line. Please let me know how I can assist you further.
