An auditor is requesting a Cash Disbursement Journal and a Check
Register. Quickbooks doesn't have these set up by those names. For
the CD Journal I used Transactions by Account filtering by Bill
Payment and for the Check Register I used Check Detail (which has too
much detail). Can anyone recommend better choices for these reports?

Thanks.

I'd just print the check register itself. I don't know what to recommend
for cash disbursements. If someone asked that of me I'd assume they wanted
to see a petty cash account quick report (which is where I post all cash
withdrawals to).

Sorry, I should be more clear. For initial unidentified expenses I use
petty cash (lump sum goes in then its dispersed as cash transactions take
place). If you pay people in cash, or have debits to your account, they
should show up on your register as entries without check numbers.

Printing each check register for the period in question with the option to
print split details should give the auditor the information they require.

The point is, there is no "check register".

However there are several other reports that can be customized to give comparable information. How about using Transactions by Account with appropriate filters and columns? Or how about the Missing Checks report?

If there's a bank account set up then there's a check register for it.

There is a BANK register, somewhat different from a CHECK register.

A check register shows only checks, a bank register shows all bank transactions?

I wondered why he needs both a check register and disbursement journal. And I didn't think disbursement journal shows only bill payments.

Oh, ok. I've always heard a bank register as being called a check register.
The paper registers you get when you order checks are always called check
registers (even though you list deposits) so that's why I was confused.
