QB Issue Resolution:

Answer 1:

You can add a fake catchall vendor again or leave name blank in QBO.

Somewhere on the hard drive you had desktop installed is your *.qbw company file. Unless you reformatted the drive it is still there.

 

Answer:

Losing your QuickBooks data at this time of the year should be the last thing you have to deal with. Allow me to share some information on how you can write a check and keep your QuickBooks data safe and intact.

 

@john-pero is correct! To better tracked the payments you incur to other people who is not your vendor nor a customer you can still add their information in the system.

 

Here’s how to add a vendor:

  1. Go to Expense.
  2. Choose Vendors.
  3. Select New Vendor.
  4. Fill in the fields in the Vendor Information window.
  5. Click Save.

To add a customer, here’s how:

  1. Click Sales.
  2. Select Customers.
  3. Click New Customer.
  4. Complete the Customer Information window.
  5. Hit Save.

 

 

To write and print checks, here’s how:

  1. Click the Plus Icon.
  2. Choose Check.
  3. Select the name of the Payee.
  4. Fill in the complete Check details.
  5. Click Print Check at the bottom of the page.
  6. Choose the check from the Print Checks page.
  7. Hit Preview and Print.
  8. Click Print.

 

On the other hand, QuickBooks Online put a high regard to the security of your data.  Thus, your data is backed up with the same level of security used by financial institutions. You can also create your own back up by downloading on monthly basis a copy of your financial statements for record-keeping purposes.

 

If you need further help with the steps above, I’d recommend contacting our Customer Care Tea. A specialist will be able to access your account in a secured environment and further assist you via remote access session.

Resolution for Issue 'I’ve used QB desktop for years for my personal home accounting purposes. I recently lost all of my data (not to be found anywhere, trust me, frustrating) so I decided to switch to QB Online. I had individuals that I would write a monthly check to, set up as a vendor i.e. utilities. Because I didn’t want to set up everyone I wrote a check to (i.e. Suzy Q that I bought some used baby clothes from once) I had an account called “other people”, however, I can’t seem to figure out how to do this in this new program. Any suggestions on how to do this or how I should do this?' available: Yes (Solved).
