I just set up Quickbooks. I recently made a payment online to my
utility company using my checking account number and routing number. I
set up an account in Quickbooks for the utility company, entered the
bill when I received it and then went to "Pay Bills". How do I record
that I made the payment online through my checking account? When I use
my bank account, my only options are to enter a check number or print a
check.

Thanks

My bank assigns a reference number to each online transaction. Enter that for the check number (but carefully watch the next check number that QB assigns automatically). If you did not make note of the online reference number enter "Online" or something similar or just leave the number blank.

You use the 'assign check number' option on the bill pay screen. The check
number can be anything you wish. As a previous post-er suggested, you can
enter a reference number or a code word to help you when you reconcile (I
use 'EFT'. I place the reference number in the memo field).
To expand on his warning: QB keeps track of two different sets of check
numbers -- those you print and those you hand write. QB decides which set of
numbers to use based on whether the 'to be printed' box is checked or not.
This works well for folks who have check forms and who also carry a business
checkbook. But, if you use a reference number as a check number for your
online payments, you will have to adjust the check number the next time you
hand write a check.

I think you have to set up Quickbooks, or go into the set up area, because
my version that I have been using for the past year has options on the "pay
bill" page. I can pay the bill by a check, or a credit card, or by Direct
Payment, which is electronic payment via the internet. It works well.

Just put "PC" in as a check number (or EFT or something). There's
nothing special about it.
