Different display of memos on detail reports in QuickBooks Desktop

When you run a report such as a Transaction by Account Report, you see the Memo Field from the transaction override the details memos or descriptions from the transactions.  These transactions can include: checks, deposits, sales receipts, invoices and more.

For example, you create a check, entered a memo in the check area and in the Expense tab, you enter additional memos.  When you click Ctrl +Y to open the Transaction by Account Report, the report shows the memo from the check and not the details.
