Automatic Cursor Placement in QuickBooks Payables Transactions
The Start With Payee Field On Check option applies to transactions connected to payables. Enabling this option can eliminate unnecessary keystrokes by telling QuickBooks where to insert the cursor when you open a payables transaction window. When enabled, the cursor automatically appears in the payee field (Write Checks), the Vendor field (Enter Bills), or the Purchase From field (Enter Credit Card Charges). One thing to note is that in the Enter Bills and Enter Credit Card Charges windows, this option is only effective if you have multiple Accounts Payable accounts or multiple Credit Card accounts. To enable this option:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the Checking icon on the left pane and then click the Company Preferences tab.
- Check the Start With Payee Field On Check option by clicking in the check box.
