Check writing, new payee requires address field not be blank

I recently created a new checking account and linked it to my credit union. When I write a check to a new payee it requires me to enter the address and phone number for the new payee. Any way to not have to enter this information? THanks

    Are you printing paper checks or creating electronic payments via online bill pay? If you're printing paper checks, you can leave the address blank. If you're creating online payments, you must supply that information so Quicken knows where to send the payment.

    I am trying to print paper checks. I think quicken is treating it as electronic checks. I use CTRL W to display the form for writing checks. I have a separate checking account that is not linked to a financial institution and writes checks and creates payees without any problems. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    My checking account has an electronic link to my credit union. When using CTRL W to display check writing form (so I can print a check) after entering a payee (form not using my payee list) Quicken prompts me to enter the address and phone number. I can not get past the required fields. I am a long time Quicken user but never had an account linked to a financial institution.
