QB Issue Resolution:

If you write 5 checks to vendors you have to give those 5 checks to the vendors.

A bank feed is a download from your bank of transactionsome both in and out of your account. The name of the payee may not always be provided and the actual expense item even less so.

QB will to the best of its ability attempt to categorize known items but despite what rules you set will continually mislabel items. Example: QBO will supply name of payee based on last check you approved if bank info is scant. This can mean multiple checks for one vendor.

Good news, all bank feed is advisory so carefully review and edit before accepting. Otherwise your expenses will not be categorized properly

Best course of action is to record in QBO the 5 checks you wrote, not waiting for them to go through the bank; you will have recorded the proper transaction details and then when you have the bank feed you will match instead of add.
