At the end of the Quicken conversion is a list of every payee name that was not used in an account you designated as an A/R account. Therefore, this list may contain not only names of customers, vendors, and employees but also descriptions such as "Deposit," "Transfer," and "Interest."

still later:
You have a chance to change the names on the list to customers, vendors, or employees. If you don't change them now, they remain on your ON(Other Names) list. If you decide not to change the type now, you can still do it later, but you'll have to do it one name at a time.

Here are some tips for deciding whether to change a name type:

Type of name

Use for

Customer

estimates,invoices,statements:
Person or company to which you send estimates, invoices, or statements

Vendor

1099 forms,purchase orders:
Person or company to which you provide 1099 forms or send PO(Purchase Orders) or from which you receive bills

Clear the tape

1099 forms,purchase orders:
Person or company to which you provide 1099 forms or send PO(Purchase Orders) or from which you receive bills

Employee

forms:
Person for whom you provide W-2F(W-2 Forms) and report as being on your payroll

Other Name

Owners, partners, or miscellaneous payees on checks or CC(Credit Card) charges

Changing the name type for several names on your Other Names list

  1. In the Change Name Types window, choose the appropriate column for each name you want to move to a different list.

    For example, to move some names to the VL(Vendor List), click the Vendor column next to those names. To change all the marks back to the Other Name column, click Revert .

    Once change,name type,Names list,leave,change later:
    Once you change the name type, you can't undo it. The only name type you can change is the Other Name type. You can move a name from the ON(Other Names) list to the Vendor, Customer:Job, or EL(Employee List). However, you can't move a vendor, customer, or employee to any other list. Therefore, if you are not sure whether to change a name now, it's best to leave it as is. You will be able to change it later.

  2. columns,When correctly,correctly:
    When the columns are marked correctly, click OK .

If you have different versions of the same name

slightly versions name:
If you have slightly different versions of the same name (for example, Mike Rhymes, Michael Rhymes, and Michael P. Rhymes), QuickBooks will put each version of the name on the ON(Other Names) list.

However Names list,However,QuickBooks:
QuickBooks will not allow you to delete any name used in a transaction. However, you can shorten the ON(Other Names) list after you have started using QuickBooks.
