I have to take required minimum distributions from my traditional IRA and I am able to write check from the IRA account directly to the charity however the program does not allow for a check to be written it has to be withdrawal & trnsfer or contribution& transfer. Consequently the cash amount showing in my IRA is never correct.There needs to be a provision to write a check in the Actions column.

    In the IRA account try clicking the Enter Transactions button at the top left. You should see Write Check action available near the bottom of the list.

    Yes, you are right. If one can record a check using the "Enter Transaction" dialog, there should also be a matching entry in the register line's Action field.

    This should be fixed by the programmers as well as the long-standing issue about not being able to select the IRA account in the Write and Print Checks dialog.
