no problem.  

Just create a new field of Type Text called Comments and then customize the report to show that as an extra column.

Hello Mark. Thank you for your quick reply. I am new to QUICKBASE and have no one who can show me where to go. Would you please direct me to where I can create this column? I am looking everywhere on my screen and cannot figure out where to go. I greatly appreciate your help.

Well, assuming that you have Administrative rights to to make changes to the Application, you would go to the table where the report is and then look for Settings at the top right.

Then Fields
Then Add Field - give it a name and select either text as the type or multi-line text as the type.  If its just going to be a small field, then just a text field is OK.

Then you would typically view a record in your data and decide where you want to put the new field on the form so users can edit the record with the new data like the cheque #

Then you would go to the report that you are looking at and Customize this report at the top right and add the new field to the report.

There are training Webinars listed here which are free form QuickBase to help you get started. http://quickbase.intuit.com/webinars#all or QuickBase Service providers like myself offer one-on-one training if you company has budget for that.
