QuickBooks Online Sync Error: The string "XXX" in the field "NameOnCheck" is too long

How to Fix the Sync Error

Things to know

For your vendors, customers, departments and chart of accounts lists to sync correctly, Bill.com will match the character limitation of the accounting system your account is syncing to. For example, if you were previously syncing with Intacct and migrated to QuickBooks for Windows, the original character limit in Bill.com will update from 200 characters to 41 characters.
